Exotic Dancers Under Investigation

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Tight Situations, Body Satisfaction and Classy Companions.  They're local businesses that tell us they're offering exotic dancing, massages, and companionship.  But are those the only services offered?

The rates are high, anywhere between $100 and $200 an hour for dancing and massaging.

The names in the back of the paper aren't hard to miss and the Kennewick Police Department is taking notice.  They said there's been an increase in advertisements in the local paper for the exotic entertainment and said they're well aware sex may be for sale. 

For now, police will not release specific names but do say an investigation is in full swing.  Officers are looking into whether the business managers are doing more pimping than managing.

Captain Ed Seiner with the Kenenwick Police Department said if underage girls are being lured into dancing or prostitution, police plan on tracking whoever is responsible down.

"It's important for people to know things like this happen even in the Tri-Cities," said Seiner.
