Seattle Police and FBI Raid Strip Club Offices

posted by on June 2 at 11:23 AM

The Seattle Police and FBI are conducting raids on multiple locations, which appear to be linked to the Colacurcio family.

Members of the Colacurcio family, who own and operate Rick’s strip club in Lake City and the nearby Talents West, plead guilty earlier this year to conspiracy charges related strippergate.

The FBI will hold a press conference at the US Attorney’s office later today.

More info as this develops.

why use a whaling vessel to catch a brook trout? "conspiracy" is hyperbole.

So weird, I was talking to someone about this family last night. Apparently there are rumors that those guys have murdured some of the girls that worked there.

And many employees think its common knowledge and try to stay on their good side.

Also, the mob is here in Seattle. Plenty of people just don't know it.

@5 - And Original Monique was never heard from again ... (just kidding, I hope)

@6 - My money is on the Russian Mob. They are the only crime organization with their own nuclear arsenal.

At the apartment I used to live in the pizza delivery people were all Russian (Eastern Europe?) mob. I never understood why they were delivering pizza to me dressed up and driving a nice Mercedes. I'm assuming for the most part they ran another type of delivery service and probably thought it odd that I was only buying pizza...
