LUMBERTON, NC - Several NC agencies capped an undercover operation on Friday with a busts at a strip club in Fayetteville and other establishments in Robeson County and Cumberland County.

The N.C. Department of Public Safety Alcohol Law Enforcement has requested the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission  revoke the ABC permit at Mickey’s Bar and Grille and two other nightclubs following the arrest of 14 employees and patrons on drug charges.

Agents have arrest warrants for 14 other employees and patrons, officials said in a press release.

Local complaints about the clubs prompted a six-month undercover investigation that culminated with a bust on Friday involving ALE agents, Fayetteville police officers and Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies entering Mickey’s nightclub at 5121 Bragg Blvd, according to authorities.

"We bought drugs from every person you can imagine inside the place with the exception of the owner,” said ALE agent Jason Locklear.

“We bought from the managers. We bought from the security guards, adult entertainers, the cooks, the dishwashers, the person working the front door, the clerk."

Of those arrested, five were identified as drug traffickers, officials said.

ALE Agents also made simultaneous arrests at two other area nightclubs:

22 Klicks on 3109 N. Main St., Hope Mills and

The Crows Nest on 4351 Chickenfoot Road, St. Pauls, in Robeson County, where five other people were arrested.

A man identified as a primary supplier was arrested at the Coliseum Inn, Fayetteville, and his hotel room searched, authorities said.

Special Agent in Charge of ALE’s District V office in Fayetteville, Jason Locklear, said that undercover agents at Mickey’s purchased drugs from every employee except the owner during the operation.

“We bought from the manager, we bought from the security guards, we bought from the adult entertainers, from the cook, the dishwasher, the security guards, the person working the front door, the clerk.”

“ALE’s primary focus is on ABC permitted establishments that are the source of criminal activity like the ones targeted Friday night,” said DPS Secretary Frank L. Perry.

“We can’t have safer communities without putting an end to establishments that allow drug trafficking. We’re on a mission, and working with our law enforcement partners, and the ABC Commission, we intend to continue targeting permit holders who willfully engage in criminal activity on the premises of ABC permitted establishments.”

More than 270 charges were filed in the raids, 174 of which were felonies:
