Knoxville, TENN. (WVLT) --- Volunteer TV has found out a lot more about the raid on a adult bookstore, we first told you about Saturday night. Officers arrested 15 people, after breaking up what they called a "meet and greet sex fest" at the Adult World along I-75 in Campbell County.

They're all charged with indecent exposure. The material contained in this story is extremely graphic.

"It may be legal in Las Vegas, but It's not legal in Campbell County.," said ex-employee Dreama Dolin. Dolin says "it's" illegal sex, and she says it happened at Adult World along I-75.

"What goes on in there shouldn't really go anywhere," Dolin said regarding the place she worked for three years as a clerk.

Drivers tried to hit the road, as Campbell County and state officers busted what police called a "meet and greet sex fest" at the adult superstore Saturday night.

Caryville Police Chief Bill Widener says his officers foud, "Men masturbating in there, and they witnessed others having oral sex in there."

In all, Chief Widener has tallied nearly two dozen city ordinance violations so far, and the 15 people cuffed and charged with indecent exposure.

"It's illegal to have it in the business. It's alright to do it at home, behind closed doors, or a motel. But as far as a business, and they're making money off it, owners and operators do," Widener said.

Ex-employee Dreama Dolin says she saw it all. But she says she got fired last month when she bared her curiosity.

"I was asking questions about the legalities of the dancing and some of things going on in the store," Dolin said. She insists she's not just a disgruntled employee.

Caryville Police revoked Adult World's adult oriented business license. That's created a mixed response from Caryville residents.

"I'd like to see it open if they follow the guidelines. That's what they're there for," said business owner Mike Miller. He says the city valued a great deal from Adult World's tax revenue.

But resident Linda Hubbard said, "However they found out, praise God it's closed!"

We tried calling the owners of Adult World mutiple times Sunday, but they haven't returned our calls.

Those arrested are set to be arraigned Friday in Jacksboro. Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor. Police sayA store employee also faces drug charges for having methadone without a prescription. Police say Adult World's owners must meet with the city before they can re-open.
