EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14) — The El Paso County Attorney’s Office obtained a temporary restraining order on Friday against the Cabaret Club for alleged illegal activity.
The county attorney said the illegal activity has been happening for several years.
The strip club is located at 4834 Montana Avenue. The Cabaret Club has a hearing scheduled for March 5.
The lawsuit was filed by the Nuisance Abatement Team of the El Paso County Attorney’s Office after it received information about dozens of calls made to law enforcement agencies for service at the establishment.
The lawsuit is coordinated between agents with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, the El Paso Police Department’s Vice Unit, law enforcement partners at the Texas Anti-Gang Center and the El Paso County Attorney’s Office.
Officials said they documented prevalent and repeated violations at the business, including possession and delivery of narcotics, one aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, prostitution, and the sale and storage of alcohol without a license.
“For at least two decades, residents in central El Paso have been complaining about illegal activity at the establishment and asking authorities to do something about this adult club located in the middle of a densely populated area,” said El Paso County Attorney Jo Anne Bernal.
