City Attorney Seeks To Curb Gang Activity, Files Lawsuit Against South LA Motel

CBSLA | December 20, 2013

LOS ANGELES — City Attorney Mike Feuer Friday announced a lawsuit has been filed against the owner of a south Los Angeles motel known as a popular place for criminal gang activity.

Feuer’s office is seeking an injunction and court-ordered improvements to the Las Palmas Motel, located at 7913 South Main Street, aiming to curb alleged rampant narcotics sales and gang activity, authorities said.

“The Property has been, for years, a notorious stronghold and refuge for members and associates of the Florencia 13 criminal street gang and members/associates of other gangs with which Florencia 13 co-exists,” says the complaint. “These gang members/associates — often armed — come and go from the Property at will without intervention by the Property’s owner.”
