INDIANAPOLIS - The IMPD Nuisance Abatement Unit served temporary restraining orders Wednesday on two hotels located on Indianapolis' southwest side.
In a release issued Thursday, police allege two hotels, Best Inn Midwest and America's Best Inn, had "numerous continued violations of law" and nuisance activity, including drug possession, dealing and prostitution.
In a complaint filed May 8, police said that investigations at the Best Inn Midwest, located at 4505 S. Harding Street, resulted in six narcotics arrests, the discovery of cocaine, heroin and drug paraphernalia and multiple felony drug dealing arrests.
The complaint also notes that in the time period between its initial filing and the issuing of the injunction, an additional 63 police runs and two IMPD reports were generated at the hotel.
Among other charges, police allege that employees at America's Best Inn, located at 4585 S. Harding St., would call rooms to alert suspected drug dealers and prostitutes about officers' presence at the hotel.
Both businesses have until noon on Saturday to remove all tenants, and may not rent any rooms until a hearing is held.
The city has an unrelated lawsuit already pending against Best Inn Midwest for nuisance allegations.
