LUBBOCK, Texas, April 10 (UPI) -- Police in Texas said a cleaning service offering nude maids could face fines if it continues to operate without a permit.
Melissa Borrett, owner of Lubbock Fantasy Maid Service, which began operating nearly a month ago, said her maids will clean houses while wearing lingerie, topless or nude, but they do not engage in any sex acts with the customers, KCBD-TV, Lubbock, reported Tuesday.
"We have a very strict no touching policy with this business. There is definitely nothing illegal going on, we really clean houses," she said.
However, Lubbock police Sgt. Jonathan Stewart said the business is considered sexually oriented due to the maids working topless or nude and Borrett could face fines unless she obtains a permit to operate such a business within city limits.
"Just the fact employees are topless or semi nude in this case it's just not allowed," Stewart said. "Without a permit would result in a penalty of a $2,000 fine. Each day would result in another penalty."
However, police said they will not investigate the business unless a complaint is lodged.
