COCOA, Fla., Oct. 2 (UPI) -- A Florida strip club has been raided by police who charged seven women with dancing completely naked and soliciting sex from customers in the parking lot.

Ray Baycora, 52, manager of the Playmates club in Cocoa, also was charged with letting the women engage in illicit acts, the Orlando Sentinel reported. City codes prohibit full nudity.

The women booked into the Brevard County Jail were Mandie Marie Lasco, 21; Crystal Marie Renfroe, 25; Debby Lynn Amirault, 26; Crystal M. Vera, 29; Norma Mae Petro, 38; Lynda Sue Gleim, 41; and Donna Lee Tanner, 44.

Thursday's arrests came after a two-month investigation of complaints from neighbors about prostitution.

Three of the women arrested had solicited several undercover agents for sex, Officer Barbara Matthews said.

Playmates reopened Friday after police shut it down Thursday night.

When the club was located on unincorporated county land, it could stay open until 2 a.m., and dancers could be naked. But after the land was annexed by Cocoa in 2003, city ordinances made dancers wear opaque coverings and the business had to close at 11 p.m.
