Update: Jamestown Club Surrounded By Law Enforcement
Update at 6:45 p.m.: A raid is underway at Rosalinda’s Gentlemen’s Club near O’Byrnes Ferry Road in Jamestown. As reported below, several travelers alerted Clarke Broadcasting to the bust noting that nearly a dozen patrol cars, including a SWAT team, had surrounded the club and people were being marched single file out of the building.
Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Officials confirmed that several agencies led by the Tuolumne Narcotics Team (TNT) carried out a search warrant at the Rosalinda’s strip club Thursday afternoon. Sheriff’s officials detail that the investigation was launched late last year by TNT and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) due to the large volume of service calls made to the club stemming from complaints and violations, including over 50 calls in 2017 alone.
Nearly 200 calls were generated in the past five years, according to sheriff’s officials, some related to serious crimes like the charge of rape last November, as reported here and the stabbing of one dancer by another at the establishment in 2015, as reported here. Additionally, there have been other assaults, code violations and thefts reported. A several month undercover investigation revealed illegal alcohol violations, California Code of Regulations violations, sales of narcotics and prostitution activities occurred at the site.
Units will remain on scene into the night, according to sheriff’s officials, as the search warrant is still being executed. Assistance in the raid was TCSO SWAT, TCSO General Detectives, Child Welfare Services, and Tuolumne County Code Enforcement.
