BARNARP, Sweden, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Residents of Barnarp, Sweden, had been trying for years to close a local strip club without success, so they bought it, village officials said.
The Cafe Musfaalan -- Mousetrap Cafe -- had been a source of noise, littering and harassment complaints since it opened, The Local.se reported. The last straw was the decision last month by the strip club's owners to change the name to Heaven "where we knead the buns together."
"It has been a great inconvenience for residents in Barnarp," Commissioner Mats Green said.
The community Friday ponied up 3 million Swedish kronor ($470,000) to buy the property so it could evict the tenants. No word on what the property will be used for next.
