5 Everett bikini baristas accused of prostitutionPosted: Updated:
EVERETT, Wash. - Five bikini baristas have been accused of prostitution in Everett.
Police say they charged customers to touch their breasts and buttocks, which falls under the city's definition of prostitution.
The Everett Herald reports the women were charging up to $80 to strip down while fixing lattes and mochas.
During a two-month investigation, detectives also saw the women lick whipped cream off each other and pose naked for pictures at the Grab-n-Go Espresso stand on Broadway.
Owner Bill Wheeler told KCPQ-TV any employee caught doing anything illegal will be fired on the spot.
Sergeant Robert Goetz says the women, ages 18-to-24, were not arrested. They are expected to be in Municipal Court in a few weeks to answer misdemeanor charges.
