VALLEY BROOK, Oklahoma -- Local, state and federal authorities raided a Valley Brook strip club and arrested 17 employees for alleged lewd acts inside the business.

The bust at Little Darlings Strip Club on S.E. 59th Street near Interstate 35 happened around 10:15 p.m. Thursday.

Fifteen women were taken into custody for lewd acts that allegedly took place inside the club. Another woman was arrested for offering a lewd act. The manager of the business was also taken to jail.

"This is the largest raid of this nature for the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office", said Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel. "A citizen complained about how this business operated. We followed up and with the assistance, and resources of so many other law enforcement agencies we had a successful raid".

Sheriff Whetsel said the bust was the result of an undercover operation between his agency, Homeland Security, and the Oklahoma ABLE Commission.
