Armed Robbery Reported at Real-Life “Sopranos” Strip Club in Lodi, NJ
According to authorities, the two suspects were armed with shotguns when they entered the Satin Dolls strip club during late-night hours.
The club is perhaps best known as the location used for shots of the Bada Bing Club, the setting for a number of memorable scenes on the hit HBO show “The Sopranos.” The northern New Jersey club honored late actor James Gandolfini, who starred as Tony Soprano, after his death in June 2013.
The suspects in the recent robbery allegedly stole $30,000 from the club before fleeing the scene. The Lodi Police Department is actively investigating the incident.
If the suspects are eventually identified and captured, they could face serious criminal charges and significant penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1, armed robbery is a first degree felony. Anyone convicted of first degree armed robbery is subject to a sentence of 10–20 years in New Jersey State Prison.
Authorities have asked that anyone with information about the alleged theft or the suspects please contact Lodi detectives at 973-473-7600.
