The Last Lap(dance) for Platinum Plus?

Heads they win; tails they lose.

Memphis D.A. Bill Gibbons is confident that the, oh, millionth time will be the charm when it comes to closing down Memphis' most notorious strip joint. Memphis police raided and padlocked "Platinum Plus" and the "Tunica Caberet" late Friday night, charging club owners with drug possession, money laundering, and prostitution.

Indictments for the charges will be handed up on Monday, December 11,2006. The raid culminates a 23-month investigation involving the Memphis Police Department and the FBI.

Police arrested more than 75 people, officials said. No word on if they were strip-searched or not.
