KSDK reported:

St. Louis County police will release more information this afternoon about 30 people were taken into custody from a home in Bel-Ridge last week.

They were taken into custody shortly before midnight on August 11.

Police said they went to a home in the 8800 block of Snowhill Court to execute a search warrant for prostitution, drugs and alcohol.

According to the Missouri Secretary of State’s website, the business, Yes We Can Social Club, is run out of that home.

Police have not yet presented their case to prosecutors for possible charges to be filed.

St. Louis Today reported:

There was a 15 year-old girl at the house at the time of the arrest.
The house, in the 8800 block of Snowhill Court, was raided early Friday morning by the county’s tactical operations, K-9, and special investigating units.

The address is listed as the location of the “Yes We Can Social Club” on the Missouri Secretary of State’s website. It was incorporated in January for the purposes of “recreation” and says that assets from the corporation would be given “to another charitable organization,” according to paperwork for the club on the site. Latroy L. Simmons is listed as the club’s registered agent.

A police spokesman said he didn’t know if the social club had anything to do with what police found last week at the home.

Some weapons were recovered and there was a 15-year-old teenage girl unrelated to anyone in the house at the time, police said.

Charges are pending.

    This is just perfect! Just the thing to throw in the face of Lib attackers one week after Peter Kinder was dragged through the mud.

    Sounds like the sewer pipe Travis capped in the movie Taxi Driver. Sure this wasn’t Anthony Weiner’s rehabilitation clinic ? What a mad mad world…. http://youtu.be/Z1R9oZN2wZk

  • Mannie

    It was the Zerobama Administration’s latest fundraiser.

    Everything, every association with the regime is corrupt.

    OBAMA’S GREEN PET GOES BANKRUPT: Got stimulus money, promised 800 jobs


    From the WH website touting the Masters Hand as he healed the economy.


    Thanks to the Obama Administration’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, real impact is already being felt across the state.

    Because of the Stimulus Bill and New Contracts, Green Energy Companies Are Looking to Hire Many New Employees. “The clean-tech and green industries in Massachusetts are hiring. Companies looking to add employees include Aeronautica Windpower in Plymouth, lithium-ion battery maker Boston-Power Inc. in Westborough, and Conservation Services Group, also in Westborough… The workforce expansions are being partly spurred by the federal economic stimulus package, which includes billions for home energy-efficiency upgrades and an extension of a tax credit for renewable energy technologies such as wind power… Because of the stimulus bill as well as several new contracts, Cowell plans to add 200 more jobs this year. The company currently employs about 400 and does business in 22 states. At least 30 to 40 of the new jobs will be in Massachusetts, he said. ‘We’re sort of the tip of the iceberg,’ Cowell said. ‘A couple of hundred people will be hired here, but that means that 2,000 people will be hired at the local level to do the work that we spec out and help facilitate.’ … At Boston-Power, which makes the Sonata battery used in Hewlett-Packard’s notebook computers, vice president of marketing Sally Bament said she is looking to hire about two dozen people in marketing, sales, and other areas. Evergreen Solar, the Marlborough-based maker of solar panels, also is hoping to hire 90 to 100 people at a manufacturing plant in Devens, said Gary Pollard, vice president of human resources. Aeronautica Windpower, meanwhile, hopes to bring on between 50 and 100 employees to begin producing midscale wind turbines at a facility that the company hopes to open somewhere in the state this spring.” [The Boston Globe, 3/6/09]

    More Evergreen fun. Evergreen’s stock hit an all-time high of $113.10 in late 2007, today it fell from $0.42 to $0.18 (57.14%), that is right, $0.18.

    So we have another Solyndra
    darn those corporate jet owners not paying their fair share of taxes
    and Bush and Cheney and Halliburton too …

    Hookers, crackheads, & drunks!

    Barry’s best supporters for his Tragical Misery Tour!

  • Paul Powers

    You think any of the members of this club were dancing at WH at the big birthday. Maybe they were waiting on the call to make the big OSB movie. I am sure they were taping things during their meetings.

  • Jim

    Come on now! It was just an Obama sponsored voter registration drive!

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    No mention of the skin color of the perps? Can only mean one thing.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    “Yes we can”?

    No. No you can’t. Just because a (1/8) black guy became president, doesn’t mean you can all do whatever the hell you want! Really! It’s true!

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Prostitution! Prostitution? There wasn’t any prostitution going on. Those women were just showing Obama supporters THE LOVE for supporting Barack. And the money they collected wasn’t payment. Nothing of the sort. That was for campaign contributions!

    Their slogan: “An Erection for Barack’s Election!”

  • Matt

    You live in St. Louis. Why don’t you do some journalism and find out who was arrested?

  • DEX

    When I commented two days ago that people who live on the north side of St. Louis aren’t exactly conservatives who would have our backs, I got negative responses from several people.

    Any one of those aforementioned geniuses want to re-evalute his or her stances in light of this story (or any in an undending string in which only the street and town need be changed)?

    Uh-huh, the 8800 block of Snowhill Court is realllllllllly Reagan, Hoft, and Perrry country.

    When will educated, conservative Caucasians realize that they will never find large amounts of allies on the south side of Chicago, east side of Springfield (Illinois), and SE Kansas City?

  • Patty

    This is just too rich. You can’t make these things up. New Name for Club, “ON NO YOU DIDN’T”

  • Militant Conservative

    Keney Soloman,

    Was loading more magazines. I counted

    the mags I just bought plus those already

    Available. 22 mags w 30 rounds each plus the

    6 emergency rounds on the vest.

    Most disturbing. Evil is coming.

    Powder is dry.

  • Patty

    Saddest thing of all these are the voters. They have no idea about how America really works. And what the Founding Fathers built. They just go along in their little world believing in what someone like Obama tells them.

    When you have no real thought in your head you are sure to be swayed. Apparently, these days with a little yes we can you can do anything…Anything AND believe you are unaccountable for your actions.

    Seems Obama is just like that too. He truly believes that Congress cause the Downgrade. And the Tea Party are the terrorists. Funny, most criminals are just like that, too.

    Too Good to Check Comment:
    It’s not their fault; James O’Keefe talked them into it.

    Serious Skeptical Comment:
    Using “Yes We Can” is not evidence of any real tie to the Obama campaign or administration. People use slogans and sayings that are familiar to them and others all the time regardless of whether they belong to someone else. If I’d been running a crack house in the late ’80s, I would totally have called it the “Just Say No Foundation.”
    On the other hand, just because you’d have to be brazen and stupid to do something like this in connection with the President’s campaign doesn’t mean nobody decided to do it. People do stupid things all the time, so I’ll be interested to see if it goes anywhere.

    Either way the headline is enjoyable enough to justify the whole discussion.

    @ #2: Hey, Kenny Solomon. Your absence has been noticed. Good to see you here this evening. I hope you and yours are well and all is good.
