DETROIT (AP) -

The Wayne County sheriff's department says deputies found 130 people inside an illegal after-hours drinking establishment in Detroit when they raided it.

The department says it conducted the raid about 4 a.m. Sunday at the club of a type known locally as a blind pig.

The department says the establishment 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.
