They might of got 16 in August. But, there is blatant drug and prostitution going on there every night. They use the alley and street around the motels. The police should sit in one of our houses here. And watch all the going ons. The motels just keep those kind of people in business. The blonde haired girl is dropped off on 8th avenue by the veterinary hospital. She waits for a black guy who exchanges something with her. Then a truck pulls up and she hops in. This repeats quite a few times during the night. Various cars pull up on 8th avenue by the veterinary hospital. They either have a runner with drugs come to them or they walk over to the motels get what they need and come back. Police need to surveilance everything from one of our upstair rooms. So much goes on. More than they know. They sit in cars behind the budget motel and guys jump over the fence with drugs. They need to put a street light on the pole there maybe that would deter them. I and my neighbors see it every night and day. The motels should be shut down. I've thought of taking pictures and license numbers. But, I did one time and nothing was done. I even called a company about their company truck ( phone number on truck) coming and parking on our street walking to the motel to get drugs. Our street 8th Avenue is the drive thru parking lot of drugs and prostitution of the Budget and Park Plaza Motel. Not to mention other drug going ons at a rental home. Who will listen? S

City police are the same way down in Brooklyn near (9th and Pontiac ave) I am willing to bet the police are getting kickbacks from the dealers for "turning their heads the other way"
