Posted: Updated:

WELLFORD, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say the owner of a strip club in Spartanburg County has been charged with prostitution after dancers offered to perform sex acts for money on undercover officers.

Welford Police Chief Jeff Bowers told local media outlets that the dancers told the undercover officers that part of the money they paid would also go to the owner of Teazers Entertainment, 51-year-old Timothy Treadwell.

Police say they also are seeking arrest warrants against the dancers.

It wasn't known if Treadwell had a lawyer.
