On Tuesday some wild news out of South Philadelphia sounded like an episode of Boardwalk Empire.

Yesterday, Philadelphia police busted a prostitution ring, but it was in a very unlikely location - a Mummers Clubhouse!

According to Philadelphia Police there were many women inside who propositioned the undercover officers. In addition, many women were scantily clad and naked - ranging from the 20's to 40's.

Police also reportedly saw sexual acts taking place inside the Downtowners Fancy Brigade Clubhouse on 148-50 Snyder Avenue.

After the police were tipped off about the sex parties every second Tuesday of the month they began an investigation which lasted six months.

It culminated in the visit by two undercover officers. Once they were propositioned and saw some shenanigans going on they called in the raid.

Ten women were arrested for prostitution offenses. One man was arrested for promoting it, while two others were arrested for illegally selling alcohol.

Between 50 to 60 people were found inside and 15 to 20 kegs of beer were confiscated along with assorted liquor.

Looks like for some Mummers there is more to life than the Mummers Parade.
