8 charged in Philly strip club prostitution bust
PHILADELPHIA - November 7, 2011 (WPVI) -- State police say seven exotic dancers and a manager face prostitution charges after a raid on a Philadelphia strip club.
Troopers from the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement say the Penthouse Club was raided on Friday. State Police Sgt. William LaTorre says the dancers would perform various sex acts in secluded parts of the building, while the club took a cut of the cash.
LaTorre says his investigators are looking into allegations of wrongdoing at various other strip clubs and more raids could be coming.
Officials did not release the names of the eight suspects. LaTorre says those charged solicited undercover troopers.
The phone number for the club rang unanswered early Monday.
