Los Angeles Superspreader Task Force Breaks up ‘Stripper Parties’

The Los Angeles County superspreader task force continues to enforce the county’s COVID-19 health orders by cracking down on underground parties featuring booze, strippers, and hundreds of revelers, Fox News reports. 

Last Thursday night, the superspreader task force targeted three locations, where officials say a total of 137 people were arrested and additionally seized a discarded firearm.

Photos tweeted by the Sheriff’s Department show raided empty rooms, including a hookah lounge and what appears to be an office space converted to a makeshift strip club complete with a bar and stripper poles.

 

On Friday night, the task force broke up a “stripper party” at a flower shop in southeast L.A. County, according to KTTV, whose reporters have tagged along with the superspreader task force over the last few weeks.

“Inside the flower shop, there were in excess of 50 partygoers, most of whom were not wearing masks,” Sheriff’s Captain Ed Wells told the local news outlet. “All of whom were arrested and issued a promise to appear.”

 

The superspreader task force has detained close to 1,000 people over the last several weeks.

“Sheriff Alex Villanueva has made it clear he will seek out & take law enforcement action against ALL underground party events occurring anywhere within Los Angeles County, who fall under the Health Orders of the County’s Department of Public Health,” the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department said Sunday.
