SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Charges have been withdrawn in an illegal strip club investigation in Suffolk.

36-year-old Sonya Fletcher was arrested in May, and was accused of running an illegal strip club in her home. Fletcher rented the home, and was accused of stripping along with several other women.

Investigators said a man, 43-year-old Jeffrey Pope, sold beer and shots. In May, 10 On Your Side learned Pope had died just weeks later in a car crash.

According to court records, charges were nolle prosequi against Fletcher, which means they could be brought back at a later date.
