On Oct. 31, a judge ordered The Harem to be closed for 12 months, after the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office requested, and was granted an injunction that declared the business a public nuisance. Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck said previously his office will seek to permanently close the establishment.
Earlier, Heck’s office said criminal activity at the business at 5825 North Dixie Drive between January and September 2017 included prostitution, drug trafficking and trading of food stamps for drugs or sex.
Prosecutors said undercover agents witnessed multiple liquor violations, prostitution, and felony drug trafficking, including marijuana, methamphetamines, heroin, cocaine, fentanyl, carfentanil and Oxycodone.
11 people have been indicted on charges following a nine-month investigation initiated by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
