Police in Tel Aviv raided a gay club on Friday night and arrested the owner and another worker after drugs were found on the premises. Fourteen other individuals were briefly detained for questioning and then released, and the venue was immediately shut down. People present at the time of the raid told Channel 12 news that there were many tourists at the venue on Carlebach Street at the time of the raid, as the city gears up for its annual pride parade next Friday. Eyewitnesses said four police officers entered the club with a dog and checked the lockers where patrons store their personal belongings. Hebrew-language media reported that the venue was a sauna.
