OKLAHOMA - A local strip club was raided, accused of illegally selling alcohol to undercover officers and minors.

We first reported on the sting operation last month.

We now know much of the staff has been let go as a result of the raid.

Being an all nude strip club, La Nude in Valley Brook is barred from selling alcohol of any kind.

Owner Colleen Hutto has since pleaded no contest on a number of citations.

Department body cameras captured the raid after a multi-month sting operation.

"Police department with a search warrant," exclaimed an officer in the video. "Everybody stop where you're at."

"We originally received a tip from a concerned citizen that they were possibly selling drinks that had liquor in them through infused fruit," said Michael Stamp, Chief of Police.

La Nude is one of two all bars in Valley Brook, both of which are labeled as non-alcoholic 'juice bars.'

"Alcoholic beverages and nudity - you can't mix the two," Stamp said. "You can't be totally nude in an alcoholic establishment."

Four were arrested as a result of the sting, including Hutto, and manager Michael Strothmann.

NewsChannel 4 has reached out to Hutto multiple times but have been told she has no comment.

She recently pleaded no contest on seven citations and must pay $4,123 in fines.

As part of her plea deal, she's also been given six months probation.

A woman close to Hutto said all other employees involved in the scandal have been let go from La Nude.

The juice bar is reportedly still in business.
