SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A woman is accused of running an illegal strip club in her downtown Suffolk home.

Police arrested 36-year-old Sonya Fletcher earlier this month. Paperwork filed in the Circuit Court describes what police found during a month-long investigation.

Fletcher, who rents the home, is accused of stripping along with several other women, while 43-year-old Jeffrey Pope sold beer and shots. Both were charged on May 3, but 10 On Your Side learned Pope died two weeks later, on May 18 in a car crash.

An anonymous citizen reported the stripper parties. She told police the alcohol sold for $2, which she complained was expensive compared to other places.

Fletcher, who lives in the house with her children, according to court records, will be arraigned June 24.
