Cops Bust Secret Strip Club
About 30 county, state and federal officers raided the club last Friday night.
"There was one young lady dancing on the stage, several customers sitting around, a couple of dancers walking around, said Sgt. Tollie Rowe, Pettis County Detective. "Lots of beer on the table, different types of liquor and so on."
Ricky Dean Weaver was charged with operating a business and selling liquor without a license. Four others were also arrested in the raid.
Neighbors later complained of people coming in, playing loud music, and being a general noise disturbance.
"It's just not something we want right here in the middle of all five of our family houses, you know," said Adam Grover, Weaver's neighbor. "I mean dead in the center."
Kevin Bond, Pettis County Sheriff, hopes he's taken out the trash for good.
"After the owners were arrested, we spoke with them and in speaking with them we made it very clear that this is not an operation that is going to continue," said Bond.
