    As many as 14 armed Orange County deputies, including narcotics agents,
    stormed Strictly Skillz barbershop during business hours on a Saturday in
    August, handcuffing barbers in front of customers during a busy back-to-
    school weekend.

    It was just one of a series of unprecedented raid-style inspections the
    Orange County Sheriff's Office recently conducted with a state regulating
    agency, targeting several predominantly black- and Hispanic-owned
    barbershops in the Pine Hills area.

    In "sweeps" on Aug. 21 and Sept. 17 targeting at least nine shops,
    deputies arrested 37 people — the majority charged with "barbering without
    a license," a misdemeanor that state records show only three other people
    have been jailed in Florida in the past 10 years.

    The operations were conducted without warrants, under the authority of the
    Department of Business and Professional Regulation inspectors, who can
    enter salons at will. Deputies said they found evidence of illegal activity,
    including guns, drugs and gambling. However, records show that during the
    two sweeps, and a smaller one in October, just three people were charged
    with anything other than a licensing violation.

    Criminal barbering? Raids at Orange County shops lead to arrests, raise questions

    The Orange County (Florida) Sheriff's Office teamed with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to raid barbershops in the Pine Hills neighborhood of Orlando, arresting barbers on a misdemeanor charge almost never used.
