REDDING, Calif. - The Shasta County District Attorney's Office has filed a civil prosecution lawsuit against the Market Street Manor and its owners following accusations of criminal, drug, prostitution and nuisance activity occurring at the hotel. 

The hotel was purchased by Desmond and Chandler Gumbs on Aril 28, 2017, and since then police said the motel has been used as a place for excessive crime activity. They regularly find individuals under the influence of controlled substances, prostitution-type activity, narcotic sales and violent crimes. 

From March 14, 2018, to Oct. 8, 2018, Market Street Manor account for 124 instances of law enforcement, which was a 121 percent increase from before the Gumps ownership. 

Besides civil penalties, the lawsuit also addresses the owners and asks them to take measures to improve the conditions at the property. Investigations revealed deplorable living conditions, with certain rooms having an infestation of rats, mice and bedbugs. 

“The Market Street Manor has become a hub of crime and violence in our community, and it is a public nuisance," said Shasta County District Attorney Stephanie Bridgett. "I cannot permit this business to continue violating the law without consequences."
