PALATKA, Fla. -- Five individuals were arrested during an undercover investigation of the Adult Super Center on Reid Street.
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office conducted the investigation due to reports of lewd acts being committed on the premises.
Four adult males were observed by an undercover detective committing lewd acts, according to a release from the Sheriff's Office.
Charges of lewdness against the males will be forwarded to the State Attorney's Office, the release stated. One of these males will also face resisting arrest without violence.
Charges against a female store clerk of operating a structure for the purpose of lewdness will also be forwarded to the State Attorney's Office.
"This operation is in direct response to numerous reports the agency has received of illegal activity at this business," Sheriff Jeff Hardy said.
