    As if the table dances didn't already cost an arm and a leg, one West Palm Beach stripper has found a new way of pilfering patrons' pockets: robbing them at gunpoint.

    Flashdance stripper Bridget McAllister, 25, was arrested Saturday after she and her boyfriend held up a customer, taking his phone, keys and $250, according to the Palm Beach Post.

    The boyfriend, Juan Jesse Rojas, who's from southern Miami-Dade, was arrested Tuesday.

    The incident happened Thursday, after a night at the club at Purdy Lane and Military Trail.

    According to police, McAllister told the unidentified 44-year-old customer that she was on the verge of getting kicked out of her motel and needed money.

    The customer said he couldn't give her money but offered her a ride home. Instead of going home, McAllister led the man to an alley, where Rojas was waiting with a gun.

    After pointing the gun at the customer's head and looting him of his cash and phone, Rojas and McAllister then took off in Rojas' truck.

    Police questioned McAllister Friday at Flashdance, where she denied robbing the customer. But the customer had already picked Rojas, 28, out of a photo lineup.

    McAllister was charged with robbery without a firearm, and was being still being held in the Palm Beach County Jail on $10,000 bail. Rojas was charged with robbery with a firearm and was being held on $25,000 bail.
