Sin City Cabaret workers accused of selling drugs

Workers at a Bronx cabaret are accused of selling drugs inside the club.



Authorities say two dancers, one bouncer and their associate were arrested for allegedly selling cocaine to undercover officers in the back of Sin City Cabaret. The special narcotics prosecutor's office says the illegal sales date all the way back to 2014.



Police say dancer Claudia de LaRosa, 29, her associate Pamela Contreras, 28, bouncer Isaac Flores, 34, and dancer JoeAnna McCarthy, 25, are accused of selling cocaine to undercover officers on several occasions. The sales also allegedly took place at a gas station near Sin City and at CityScapes, a strip club in Queens.



Derrick Monahan, the manager of Sin City, says he's disappointed about what occurred. He says the employees were terminated months ago and one as far back as December 2014. He says he doesn't condone that behavior.



The NYPD has issued more than a dozen summonses to the owner of Sin City for building-related violations. However, the club has not been shut down.



Investigators say McCarthy is the only one who's been released on her own recognizance. They say a second bouncer is in federal custody in connection with another case, but is expected in court next week on charges related to this case.
