CAHOKIA, Ill. (KMOV) -- Saint Clair Country Sheriff believes vacant, boarded up and burned out homes in Parkfield Terrace have been giving drug dealers a hiding spot and are now determining they should be demolished. 

They will tear down 26 derelict homes in the Parkfield Terrace area that neighborhood police have called "a cesspool of thugs."

Parkfield Terrace is also home to several law-abiding families that the county is trying to protect by tearing down the homes.
