TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police carried out a raid of an east side strip club Thursday night.

Armed with a search warrant, officers raided the Candy Store and arrested a number of workers who allegedly sold drugs at the establishment.

Police said some of the suspects were also involved in prostitution.

Detectives have investigated past crimes at the club including two homicides.

A few months ago the Tucson Police Department sent a letter to the state asking it to revoke the club's liquor license.

A call to the Candy Store Friday morning went unanswered.
