MARYSVILLE, Calif. — A local strip club has
raised over $2,000 for two deputies who were wounded in a shooting on a
Rastafarian church’s marijuana farm last month.
On Saturday, the
City Limits Showgirls held a topless carwash on the club’s property to
raise money for the Yuba County deputies, KCRA reported. They were hidden underneath a large tent.
Last month, deputies responded to reports of an agitated man pulling up plants on a Rastafarian church’s marijuana farm, the Associated Press reported.
The deputies were given permission to search a home after the suspect
fled. The gunman opened fire on the deputies who went inside. The
suspect died in the standoff. The deputies were airlifted to the
hospital where they underwent surgery and are recovering.
club operations manager said they raised $2,565 for the officers. The
Yuba County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that they are not
affiliated with the fundraiser, but appreciate the sentiment of support.
