ORANGE COUNTY , Fla., June 30 (UPI) -- Police raided a Florida barbershop over the weekend and took its owner to jail after allegedly discovering that the Orange County establishment doubled as an illegal strip club.

Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation agents raided Super Fades barbershop early on Sunday morning and allegedly found a 17-year-old girl and other women stripping inside the business.

The MBI agents were also able to purchase $20 worth of vodka at the shop.

This was not the first time agents have gone to the shop, but it was the first time they made an arrest.

"On each and every occasion they were serving alcohol and they had strippers. And, not strippers following local law, but strippers that went completely nude," said MBI investigator Lt. Mike Gibson.

Business owner Derrick Dekeith Price, 42, was taken to jail. Other arrests may be coming.

"We had to speed up our investigation quite a bit to get the juvenile out, and in fact, we did," Gibson told Channel 9.

A stripper pole that was featured in the shop was removed. "That would have been a piece of equipment that was there even when they operated during the day while they acted as a barbershop," Gibson said.
