ROSAMOND – Four Antelope Valley women were arrested on prostitution charges, five other people were cited on other charges and a working slot machine was seized at the Zebra Club, which investigators described as “an unlicensed adult entertainment business,” according to a Kern County Sheriff’s Department announcement.

Helen Strauss, 27, of Lancaster was cited on suspicion of operating an adult entertainment business without a license. She was also cited and released on two unrelated arrest warrants, deputies said.
Also cited were 58-year-old Michael Noe and 40-year-old Ronald Bartolli, both of Lancaster, Kern County Sheriff’s officials said.
Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office’s Rural Crime Investigation Unit, in cooperation with state Department of Alcohol Beverage Control, on Thursday completed their investigation into the club at 2763 Sierra Highway by making arrests, citations and seizure.
