MEDFORD, Ore. — Neighboring businesses want the criminal activity flushed out of Cedar Lodge Inn.

Tuesday morning, multiple agencies inspected the motel with a fine tooth comb. They say since January of this year, there have been 155 incidents.

Officers have responded to the lodge for assaults to stolen vehicles. In the last three weeks, News Watch 12 has reported stabbings, numerous arrests and drug offenses at the motel. A lodge employee who did not want to go on camera says the manager feels like the police is targeting them. But officers say the inspection was neccesary considering the history of the lodge. During the inspection, police arrested or cited five people out with warrants. Another person was also charged for endangering a minor.

“The reason for that was because of the drugs, in the vicinity of the children. In addition to that, we had animal control come out. There were numerous cats and dogs that were malnourished,” said Medford Police Lt. Curtis Whipple.

The fire and building department found out of 49 available rooms, nearly half of them had smoke detector violations. Officials also found other maintenance issues.

The Cedar Lodge Inn is still open. The company has about 10 days to fix the maintenance issues.

    From the owners to managment to employess down to the guests ,this place is over run with druggies and violence.. The cedar lodge not only allows the guests to stay there do drugs and sell drugs but to work under the table for there rent. Therefore the local criminals run that place! CLOSE IT DOWN!!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    Why yes that sound’s like a good idea, our state would better without them. a whole lot of problem’s would be solved. Like unemployment, welfear, ganges, drugs. And before you me a RACISTS BAST, Look why I fell that way, they are the reason our valley is dealing with these problems. I think the INS needs to go house to house and round them up. Then INS needs to go to every employer, Landlord who rent’s to mexicans, park, ect and ask for there papers and prove there not ILLEGAL’S.
