Treasures strip club facing lawsuit by city, county
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Treasures, a strip club which has operated on Westheimer since 1995, is under fire from the city of Houston and Harris County for allegedly allowing everything from drug sales to prostitution to human trafficking to go on inside.
The county and city attorneys filed a suit Wednesday declaring Treasures a nuisance and seeking to have a permanent injunction against Treasures based on police reports of arrests made at the strip club dating back to 2008.
Treasures' lawyer flat out denied the allegation and says the business is being targeted because it has fought and won the right to operate in Houston without being classified as a sexually oriented business. Their lawyer predicts the case will be dismissed.
