A private security firm that has worked with dozens of different high-profile businesses and events in Philadelphia was charged on Monday with operating without a license.

Osvaldo Gallelli, 39, of Philadelphia managed Prodigal Private Security, the firm in question, and turned himself in to the District Attorney’s Office on Monday morning, according to a press release from the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors say that from 2011 to 2013 Prodigal Private Security provided security services for more than 33 businesses, including the University of Pennsylvania, Eastern State Penitentiary and a host of nightclubs and restaurants throughout the city. Prosecutors say he didn't have the proper licensing.

Gallelli was arraigned on Monday evening, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 19.
