Stripper Who Hung Up On Cop Trying To Find Her Missing Child Explained, "I Have To Get On Stage"

A Florida stripper yesterday hung up the phone on a cop trying to locate her missing 10-year-old daughter because she was due on stage at a gentlemen’s club, police report.

Bobbey Jo Boucher, 29, was arrested last night for misdemeanor obstruction and booked into the Pasco County jail. Boucher, pictured at right, was released from custody this morning after posting $663 bond.

Cops were summoned yesterday to Boucher’s home by the child’s grandmother, who reported that the girl had been missing for four hours. The woman told officers that Boucher had “left the child at a BBQ up the street as she went to work” Wednesday afternoon at the Calendar Girls strip club.

When the child did not return from the barbecue, her grandmother called cops. In turn, Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputies contacted Boucher at the club. But while speaking with a deputy, Boucher “stated ‘I have to get on stage’ and hung up the phone.”

Boucher subsequently contended that she did not hang up on the deputy, but rather just “transferred to another caller who was calling her.” That explanation did not fly with cops, who noted that the hang up prevented them from entering information about the girl into a missing child databse.

The girl was eventually found unharmed around 9 PM. Her mother was busted an hour later.
