According to one of the former dancers at Jezebels Gentlemen’s Club, this Facebook profile, using the name “Matt Williams Jr.“, belongs to one of the two undercover Sedgwick County Sheriffs Deputies who “investigated” the club prior to the highly publicized raid which resulted in a large amount of cash being seized from the club, and from customers who happened to be there that night.
What the investigation and subsequent raid did not yield was cocaine, nor any significant arrests. Almost all of the people who were arrested in connection to the raid have had their cases dismissed. According to the Sheriffs Department, at that time, the investigation had uncovered a large cocaine smuggling ring. One of the most serious charges that actually went to court involved furnishing alcohol to a minor, which the court found to be unsubstantiated.
This did not stop the county from shutting the club down. Rumor in the business community has it that the property will be sold to an aircraft company called ONEX.
According to multiple dancers who were working at the club during that time period, Williams, whose real name is Matthew Lynch (based on paperwork filed in the case), and the other detective were frequent purchasers of lap dances, and the club’s VIP status, which allowed them to sit at a specific table.
According to Daily Haze, roughly $20,000 was spent on this investigation.
Detective Lynch is listed on the Kansas Narcotics Officers Association’s website as the “2014 Member of the Year”.
