Dancers arrested in prostitution bust
ALLENTOWN (AP) — Eleven exotic dancers have been arrested on prostitution charges after an undercover sting at an Allentown strip club.
Police raided the Platinum Plus club around 5 p.m. Wednesday. Investigators allege officers were offered sex acts for between $500 and $1,100. Authorities say the officers gave all 11 employees a $100 down payment in exchange for sexual acts and told them they would pay the rest in a private room.
Authorities allege an officer visited the club a few times before the raid, posing as a wine distributor. He told a club employee he had some high-price clients coming in and wanted them treated well.
The dancers have been released on $20,000 bail.
Matt Croslis, an attorney for the club, told The Express-Times it “does not promote or permit illegal activity.”
