(CBS/AP) EVERETT, Wash. - Police say bikini-wearing baristas at two espresso stands in Everett were putting on strip shows.

Officers arrested three women Wednesday at two of the Grab-N-Go locations for serving up much more than just a cup o' joe in the western Washington city.

Police said the arrests were the result of a two-month undercover investigation following citizen complaints.

Investigators say at times no coffee would be sold but women would be paid for exposing themselves in violation of the city's adult cabaret law.

This isn't the first time the controversial bikini baristas have been under fire for allegedly leting things get too hot on the job. Back in 2009, baristas at Grab-N-Go locations in Everett were accused, along with baristas from other are coffee stands, of putting on erotic shows.
