PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Nine people, including a 17-year-old female, were arrested and face prostitution charges after a police investigation of a Kingsessing club.

Twisters MC Club, located on the 5700 Block of Hoffman Street, was investigated after police received complaints that members were acting unruly into early morning hours.

Authorities say after several surveillance operations, police discovered that the club was not licensed and women were allegedly soliciting money from male patrons for sex acts.

The nine arrested include 35-year-old Terry Boyd, 42-year-old Mark Williams, 23-year-old Shante Williams, 25-year-old Joshua Ward, 19-year-old Thyini Johnson, 39-year-old Nicola Taylor, 18-year-old Lenee Taylor, 44-year-old Maxine Purvis, and a 17-year-old female.

They were charged with narcotics, prostitution, and related offenses.
