7 detectives spend $700 in strip club sting

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Springs authorities are defending assigning seven detectives to spend $700 at a strip club as part of a liquor compliance audit and prostitution sting.

The Gazette reports that PT's Showclub surrendered its liquor license on April 28. A March 5 audit found alcohol violations but no prostitution after detectives solicited sex for money.

Colorado Springs Lt. John Godsey heads the multi-agency Metro, Vice, Narcotics and Intelligence Unit. He says the $700 came from money seized in other undercover investigations.

Godsey says $100 per police and sheriff detectives trying to blend in seems about right for a gentleman's club. An attorney for the club says the owners voluntarily surrendered the club's liquor license.

The club is now all nude and doesn't serve liquor.
