HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- According to Prosecutors the say customers used food stamps to buy lap dances at a strip club in Ohio.

A months-long undercover investigation led to task force raids at several establishments in Harrison Township.

Montgomery County prosecutor Mat Heck stated "In short, the Harem was being used basically as a sex and drug den,".

Five people have been arrested and are in jail and there are warrants for six more for what prosecutors say was happening inside The Harem.

According to Heck "Undercover agents witnessed a number of liquor violations, including dancers in full nudity. They witnessed illegal drug transactions,".

The investigation included the undercover agents buying drugs from the defendants and "observed the trading of food stamps and the cards used to obtain food stamps in exchange for sex acts, for lap dances, and even for illegal drugs."

The investigation at The Harem led officers to Sharkey's and The Living Room. Both are facing sex and drug charges.

"The residents of Harrison Township are frustrated and really angry at this illegal activity, and I don't blame them," Heck said.

A hearing will decide whether The Harem will be closed permanently. The other establishments are already back open.
