August 23, 2013 (Lemon Grove) – Following an eight-month investigation, San Diego Sheriff’s deputies served search warrants and four arrest warrants at the Little Darlings Strip Club in Lemon Grove last night.
After a number of community complaints about illegal drug usage, drug sales and prostitution at the club, Sheriff’s detectives and the Narcotics Task Force launched an undercover investigation. Dancers and employees sold and supplied undercover detectives with narcotics or drugs on eight separate occasions, said Lt. Hank Turner. Detectives also witnessed or were solicited for lewd and lascivious acts for money. Undercover detectives also documented eight acts of prostitution and witnessed repeated licensing violations including selling alcohol to undercover detectives without a license.
Detectives arrested three employees for drug-related offenses and an outstanding arrest warrant. More arrest warrants will be sought for other criminal activities after evidence seized is analyzed, Lt. Turner indicated.
