Examiner, November 29, 2005 (by Anna Bailey, Examiner Staff Writer)
A task force's efforts could not save the life of a 19-year-old girl in Suitland, but its members have been targeting illegal clubs in Prince George's County like the one where Lakita Tolson was slain earlier this month.Related:
The task force, comprised of law enforcement and permitting agencies, told the County Council Monday that at least 33 clubs in the county operate outside the original intent of their use and occupancy permits. The clubs often attract criminal activity, such as the shooting at the Culture Club that killed Tolson.
