DETROIT -

The Wayne County sheriff's department says deputies found 130 people inside an illegal after-hours drinking establishment in Detroit during a raid early Sunday morning.

The department says the establishment on East Baltimore in Detroit's New Center area north of downtown also served as a site for prostitution. It says officers ticketed the blind pig's patrons and arrested 10 people operating it.

The statement says officers also confiscated six guns, about 50 cars and about $10,000 in cash.

It says alcohol and drugs were being sold on the first floor, while the second floor had a shower area and rooms used for prostitution. A 16-year-old girl was found in one of the rooms and was turned over to the Crimes Against Children Task Force.
