Surprise! La Quinta Motel on Woodruff is Full of Drugs and Hookers
Say it ain’t so! An anonymous tip about prostitution at La Quinta on Woodruff lead to the discovery of a couple of meth labs – mixed in with the hookers, natch. I actually received a tip about this myself but got distract by the whole Anna Featherston/Robert newton nonsense. Not of course that I’d publicly make a connection between Anna Feathertson, Robert Newton, Dick James and drug use, sex for money or other unsavory activity. But I forgot about this whole La Quinta thing dealing with them.
Also all motels are full of hookers and drug users. Not to minimize this bust though – meth cooking is toxic enough to sicken and kill people around the labs. But if you stay at a cheap motel what do you expect will happen? Hell, I stayed at the Drury Inn when me and the Mrs. came down to check the place out before moving here and I’m pretty sure I saw a couple of hookers there.
Anyway here’s a video report about the bust where reporters try to act as if this was a huge surprise. The only surprise here it that cops waited until someone finally got fed up with listening to pimps beat their hos before setting up a sting:
