New state reports are alleging that Chappy's Golden Shores is providing services while their license is suspended.

WDIO News has been following the allegations against Chappy's Golden Shores since December. 

The new reports say some residents moved into a building that one resident called, the "new Chappys." The report says the facility is an unoccupied commercial building that was previously used as a beauty salon, and that the building was not zoned for residential use.

"In one of the rooms that appeared to have been used by a client, a nearly full urinal full of dark brown fluid was found on a dresser," the report says.

The report also says, "There were packs of incontinence products on bookshelves, medical soaps on the floor, blood sugar testing supplies lying out, numerous boxes of gloves, and a prescription medication box containing an empty vial of insulin labeled with a client's name."

Jason Steck, the attorney for Chappy's Golden Shores owner Trish Olson, says the former residents were renting rooms in a building owned by a former Chappy's employee. He goes on to say that renting someone a room is not providing services.
