City Council to Decide Fate of Motel Cited as Nuisance

April 21, 1998

The City Council tonight is expected to close the Chief Motel, which has been cited as a neighborhood nuisance after several drug and prostitution arrests were made.

The Planning Commission recommended in February that the motel be closed. Owner Yung-Chen Lin has appealed the recommendation.

From July 1, 1995 to July 31, 1997, there were 28 reported crimes at the motel at 3932 Long Beach Blvd. in the Bixby Knolls neighborhood.

Residents banded together in August and launched a campaign to shut down the motel after a teenager was abducted in Orange County during a robbery and brought there.
