Lingerie Store Accused Of Violating State Obscenity Laws

The arrest of a local lingerie store clerk has created quite a buzz around town.

Lubbock Police executed a search warrant at Somethin' Sexy earlier this month, after receiving a complaint that the store was selling obscene devices.  Police visited the store, and found adult toys were for sale.

Having six or more obscene devices violates the state's obscenity laws.

The owner of Somethin' Sexy tells NewsChannel 11 he did not know it was against the law.

"To me, a common sense approach would have been to come in and say, hey, they may do this stuff in Dallas, but this is Lubbock, Texas, and we'll give you 24 hours to get it off the shelves," store owner Gary Evans said. 

Lubbock Police tell us it's their job to enforce the law, and their investigation revealed the store was in violation.

Several people have told NewsChannel 11 this is too much; so what can be done?  We'll have that story tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10.
