An Ohio Investigative Unit enforcement agent bought cocaine and was propositioned for sex acts during his first visit to The Harem, according to testimony Thursday during an injunction hearing.

The undercover agent said that on March 17, 2017, criminal defendant Samantha Clay gave him a private dance and the two settled on a deal for a gram of cocaine for $100. The agent said that Clay returned with the drugs and gave them to him from the front of her panties.

The agent testified Thursday in the courtroom of Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge Dennis Adkins that he received drugs from Clay, that she rubbed her naked breasts against him and that she set forth pricing if they met later at a hotel.

“She said that she goes out on dates with some of her customers or clients,” the agent said of Clay. “She said it would be $300 — $50 for the dance, $50 for the hotel and $200 for her.

“I asked if I was going to get my money’s worth and she stated that you’d definitely get (your) money’s worth.”

Along with the criminal prosecution of 11 people employed at The Harem, Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. made a nuisance abatement complaint and motion for temporary injunction seeking to have The Harem closed as a public nuisance.

After being questioned by prosecutors, the undercover agent also detailed numerous occasions in which he had sexual contact with dancers not wearing anything on their nipples and/or negotiated deals for sex or drugs.

On one occasion, the agent said a dancer offered to perform oral sex for $60. On another day, a different dancer masturbated for the agent for an extra $10 during a dance.

Heck’s office said criminal activity at the business at 5825 North Dixie Drive in Harrison Twp. 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.

The hearing is scheduled to resume Oct. 30.
