A Boonsboro man described as the owner/operator of the Adult Choice Bookstore near Chambersburg, Pa., was ordered to shut down his business Wednesday night after police served an injunction there, according to police.

Blaine W. Smiley, 60, of 20206 Millpoint Road, was cited for violation of several sections of Chapter 55 of the Real and Personal Property Act, which pertains to adult-oriented establishments, police said.

Also cited were an attendant, Steve C. Suffecool, 23, of 28 E. North St., Waynesboro, Pa.; and two managers, Sheila K. Miller, 31, of Martinsburg, W.Va., and Angela F. Ricker, 27, of Hedgesville, W.Va., police said.

The injunction orders the business to remain closed until a March 3 hearing in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, police said.


The injunction was filed at 7 p.m. by the Franklin County District Attorney's office and served by officers from Pennsylvania State Police, Franklin County Sheriff's Department and the Troop H Vice Unit.

"These are summary offenses," said District Attorney John Nelson. "The possible penalties are 90 days in jail and/or a $300 fine."

No one was taken into custody Wednesday night, Nelson said.

Police said that over the past several weeks, investigators have visited the business at 22454 Molly Pitcher Highway between Chambersburg and Marion, Pa.

They observed adult video booths which had interior door locks and holes in the walls between the booths, police alleged.
