Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Humbach says there is a chronic issue of criminality going on at the Nyack Motor Lodge.

"There have been crimes here, including drug dealing, including prostitution, there have been opiate overdoses at this location where people have been taken out. That's the neighborhood that we're worried about," Humach said.

According to a criminal complaint filed earlier this month, there have been several arrests at the motel in the last year for prostitution, drug possession and other related crimes in the last year. The complaint states that 15 people have been arrested at the motel and authorities say that motel staff is not without blame.

"They understand where their clientele is coming from and they're ok with it because they're making money," Humach said.

The County District Attorney is looking to have the motel closed down permanently, and is seeking a permanent injunction against the motel.
