The Prince George's County Police Department issued violation notices to the tenant and property managers of Rose Cafe and Puzzles Event Center, ordering the businesses closed on December 20, 2013. Rose Cafe is located in the 5400 block of Marlboro Pike in Capitol Heights and Puzzles Event Center is located in the 3600 block of Saint Barnabas Road in Temple Hills.
The businesses have been operating without the required use and occupancy permit. Both have been issued several violation notices in the past, specifically related to adult entertainment activities. The violation notices served on December 20, 2013 were issued after investigators confirmed both businesses were continuing to operate as adult entertainment clubs.
Both businesses will remain closed pending the outcome of an appeals hearing.
