Two members of the Cincinnati Police Department’s vice squad, which investigates drug trafficking, prostitution and gambling, were temporarily stripped of their police powers this week after becoming the subjects of a federal investigation.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters confirmed on Friday night the pair's responsibilities had been suspended but neither had been charged with a crime.

He did not disclose the identities of the officers or the content of the investigation.
