Eight arrested at Boynton Beach strip club on prostitution, drug charges

Sep 7, 2007 | Posted by: South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

“When we turned over the couches, it was littered with used condoms and condom wrappers.”

Boynton Beach police arrested a strip club owner and seven others Friday night after an undercover operation into sex and drugs at the club. The Police Department's Community Action Team conducted surveillance at Platinum Gold, 3675 S. Federal Highway, for more than a month.

Dancers allegedly kept drugs in their lockers and sold them, with a chunk of the profits going to owner Norman Goddard, 53, of Boca Raton, police said. Dancers also paid Goddard a portion of the $300 they would charge to have sex in the champagne room, said Sgt. John Bonafair, of the CAT. Read more

I stumbled upon this forum accidently I feel I must reply. My best friend is now dead because she was employed at one of these places. She was young but foolish to be seduced by money and did things that went against her upbringing. She worked at a strip lounge on Military trail in West Palm beach while working there she became addicted to drugs to get her through the sordid lifestyle she lived. While there she contracted body lice several times and scabies finally she left ravaged by what she endured and witnessed. She died 4 month ago of AIDS she believes she contracted there she leave behind a beautiful 5 year old daughter who misses her Mother every day as I miss my best friend. It insults me to see people laugh about going to these places if they only knew the dangers they entail. Its too late for my friend I only hope other young girls see this and remember there is no easy money and this lifestyle is not exciting nor happy I only wish my friend learned earlier. We love and miss her.

That is just too sad about that sweet little girl being an orphan. There has been alot of talk about dancers giving the customers disease but I imagine its the other way around too even lap dancing and touching carry a risk. My prayers to that poor child and my prayes also to the foolish people who continue to work and patronize these unclean unsafe places.

Why is vile man out of prison? Did he not sell drugs to children and promote prostitution and AIDS? I though his license was to be revoked. I hope the cops raid him every night till they run him out of town.

Its really not true this place is open again is it? I doubt the health agencies would allow a place full of used disgusting condoms and kids selling dope to remain open? if this is true Boynton is in real trouble. I hope this is just a false rumor and its still closed down and will remain closed down. Does anyone know???

yes I passed by they are open. I know their liqour license was revoked, there was hardly anyone there but they looked open. I doubt they will be able to financally stay open for long without business. I am disapointed I was hoping Boynton and Delray was rid of this eyesore albratross once and for all, people will not go somewhere where they can get beat up, robbed or arrested or catch a illness. I am sure it will be gone before long.

till these stupid guys stop going this will go on. my sisters friend worked for two months as a stripper in west palm, she said the conditions are filthy and the women are not clean, they prostitute and sell drugs and worse yet they laugh at the customers, think they are horny hardup old fools, see them as "walking ATM machines and pretend to like them for the money.

Any guy stupid enough to throw his money away on that deserves what he gets. Unfortunalty the disease does not stop at the door it goes out to infect innocent people, what does it matter whether its WP or Boynton B, its sad and stupid, I hope these guys when they catch something dont come crying to us! And the teens selling drug are just OBSENE! WHERE IS THE PBSO AND BBPD??????????

Some comments are right on the mark, some aren't. Many of these girls are drug addicts before they strip. It's an easy way to make money. They come up with elaborate lies, like stripping their way through college, but who are they really fooling? Men who go & hand them money are fools, especially because the girls feel it's their right for you to fork over every dollar in your wallet. These places are only there so that the owner can get rich, & because hookers are easy targts for the police out on the street. Boynton needs to eliminate this place for good, & then start on the one down by the Gulfstream border. From then on, there shouldn't be another one opened in this city.

My bad. I have them reversed. The next one to go needs to be the one up by MLK Blvd. They have 6-8 year old kids selling crack at that intersection. The whores walk up & down that strip, then go in to the strip club & look for customers. Smoke crack. Spread AIDS. What a life.

Oh my God! I was talking about the one by Gulfstream which is bad enough, but the one you describe by MLK blvd sounds horrific! thats the one by that park boat ramp I know where that is.

I have not been in that area in awhile but I can believe it, it was bad a few years ago. Why is the Boynton Beach Police Dept allowing this to go on?? Small kids selling drugs? aids-infected prostitues and strippers who go in that club to spread disease? Crack smoking openly? Now I see why are crime is so high these are the very people you describe who rob and burglarize us and take our lives!! This is dangerous and disgusting.

Where are the police who are allowing this, the place should be closed down and the streets cleaned up with arrests, are you listening Mayor taylor?? The area around Woolbright and South Federal have gone to hell too because the cops bury their heads in the sand and allow this.

Our community is in trouble when the law looks the other way and does not protect us from danger drugs and disease. I am ashamed of Boynton!!
