RIALTO – An internal investigation into an alleged sex scandal involving a handful of police officers could be wrapped up in a week, authorities have confirmed.

“We’re reviewing the possibility of disciplinary policies with the effected employees as this investigation comes to a conclusion,” Police Chief Mark Kling said Friday.

Two officers are no longer with the Police Department in the wake of allegations by a Spearmint Rhino strip club worker that she had sex with on-duty cops.

Nancy Holtgreve, who serves drinks at the club, alleged in a $500,000 claim that has been rejected by the city that she and other female employees of the club had sex with Rialto police officers on several occasions while the officers were on shift.

Holtgreve named James Dobbs and Lamont Quarker in her claim, which typically is a precursor to a lawsuit.

She alleged that she had sex with Quarker, a narcotics officer, in the Police Department’s narcotics office.

She says Dobbs is the father of a son she gave birth to in March, and that Dobbs threatened her when she demanded he pay child support.

Holtgreve also alleges that she and female employees of the club had sex with officers at the Rialto Police Benefit Association’s union hall.

Neither Dobbs nor Quarker have returned messages seeking comment.

Holtgreve has not spoken publicly since she made the allegations in July.

Danuta W. Tuszynska, her Riverside-based attorney, was unavailable for comment on Friday. The investigation led to six officers potentially involved with the scandal. Four were placed on paid administrative leave. Authorities haven’t named the officers on leave, citing the investigation.
