At least 10 women arrested in Arlington strip club raid

ARLINGTON -- At least 10 women were arrested Thursday night during a raid at a north Arlington strip club, according to jail records.

Chicas Locas was shut down Thursday night by officers serving arrest warrants for three suspected drug dealers.

It was unclear early Friday morning for how long the club was shut down or if the suspected drug dealers were arrested.

The arrested women remained in the Arlington Jail Friday morning on traffic warrants, according to the jail log.

Police spent late Thursday night identifying more than 60 customers and employees.

Investigators think the suspected drug dealers are employees of the club and sold drugs there.

Chicas Locas, in the 3400 block of West Division Street, has previously been cited by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for numerous alcohol related violations including allowing a female under 18 to work and dance topless, and fighting inside the club.

The warrants were the result of a months-long investigation, according to authorities.
