Authorities in Ohio have shutdown a strip club after an investigation found the establishment was accepting food stamp benefits in exchange for lap dances, illegal sexual activities, and drugs.

According to the report, Ohio State Police began investigating Sharky’s Lounge in May of 2017 after receiving a tip about their actions. During their investigation, authorities were able to exchange $2,404.87 in food stamp benefits in exchange for lap dances, heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, cocaine and methamphetamines.

Authorities have arrested multiple employees of the establishment and have charged them with drug and corruption charges and shut down the business.

This was the second establishment in the area that police in Ohio investigated due to food stamp fraud and illegal drugs. Another establishment, The Harem, lost it’s liquor license in May after an investigation.
