Early Thursday morning, several law enforcement agencies served a search warrant at the Stimmelator's Gentleman's Strip Club and California Dreamin' shop on E. Washington St. in North Webster. Inside officers found a large amount of synthetic drugs and cash.
The investigation into the strip club started back in July. Officers arrested the owner of both businesses, Samuel Scott Stimmel, 64, on preliminary charges of corrupt business influence and promoting prostitution.
Below are the other four individuals that were arrested on preliminary felony charges of promoting prostitution and are being held on individual $5,000 bonds:
.• Donn Lee Rupert, 51, South Bend
• Kimberly Kay Gill, 32, South Bend
• Kelly Joe Whitman, 23, South Bend
• Christine Marie Bennett, 27, Warsaw
Stimmel was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail but has since bonded on the original $100,000 bond.
