3 baristas arrested at 'Hillbilly Hotties' coffee stand in Everett

EVERETT -- Three baristas at the Hillbilly Hotties coffee stand in Everett were arrested Wednesday after police received complaints about alleged illegal activities, the Everett police said.

Just after 11 a.m., police served a search warrant on the stand in the 4000 block of Hoyt Avenue and arrested three baristas.

Two baristas -- a 20-year-old from Lynnwood and a 21-year-old from Shoreline, will be charged with violating Everett's adult cabaret law, police said. The third barista, a 33-year-old from Lynnwood, will be charged for lewd conduct, police said, which stemmed from a different investigation.

"The investigation was initiated by citizen complaints after they observed and reported illegal activities at the stand, which is located along a busy roadway," the police statement said.

Police added that the Hillbilly Hotties was recently robbed by a 12-year-old boy.
