MADISON COUNTY, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Authorities are considering taking over two hotels they believe to be havens for drug activity.

Officials are looking at the Relax Inn on Niedringhaus Avenue and the Canal Motel on Chain of Rocks Road. Police say both hotels have been the site of drug busts over the past couple of years, including a meth lab bust and a fatal overdose that occurred at the Canal Motel.

The Illinois State’s Attorney is considering using a drug asset forfeiture law to gain ownership of both properties.
