Street. LOIS (KMOV) — St. Louis city officials confirmed on News 4 that two properties that neighbors call troublesome properties are facing action from the city.
A home on the 5000th block of South Grand Boulevard near Walsh Street is undergoing a police investigation and a cease-and-desist order, according to Ward 13 Alderwoman Anne Schweitzer.
A cease and desist order is essentially telling the landlord to stop being a nuisance in the neighborhood.
Neighbors, who wish to remain anonymous, told News 4 that last November’s on-camera shootout stemmed from residents of the Grand Avenue property who they described as a nuisance.
St. Louis Metropolitan Police has confirmed with News 4 that at least 13 service calls have occurred at the residence over the past two years.
Lanow Partnership LLC is listed as the property owner. News 4 went to the listed address for comment from the company, but no one was there. The address also appeared to be vacant and it appears that a different company once occupied the building. The Missouri Secretary of State’s website showed the Jefferson City address for the property.
The Grand Motel on North Grand Boulevard in the North City has a disturbing meeting with the City of St. Louis in July, according to city officials.
SLMPD call records show that police have answered the address 129 times in the past two years. The property owner declined News 4’s request for comment.
The Jeff-Vander-Lou Neighborhood Association holds a meeting about the property on Saturday at 11 a.m. at 1523 Webster Ave.
Curtis Lamm lives less than a mile from his noisy property on Walsh Street and South Grand Boulevard. He told News 4 that he and his neighbor had managed to get rid of the noisy neighbors in his area.
“We were taking pictures of what we saw in person,” Lam said. Therefore, we did not necessarily deal with them in every incident. But when the property manager came in or when we saw them, we had video, and we had pictures. After that, they found a whole bunch of things in that place and were able to kick it out. You keep making sure you are told and documented by the police… and then it kind of gives that person an incentive to move on. The problems that usually occur here have stopped happening. We haven’t had any major concerns here for a year and a half – maybe two.”
The mayor’s office (Al-Akhbar 4) sent the following statement regarding the disturbing properties:
