DAYTON – Police padlocked the entrance to the Dayton Motor Motel Thursday, July 2, after the motel’s owner did not show up in court earlier this week to discuss a nuisance abatement filed against the business.

The motel, located at 1639 N. Keowee St., has been the site of numerous drug and prostitution arrests this year and years prior, Lt. Brian Johns said.

The motel’s owner, identified by the Montgomery County Auditor as Kailash G. Patel, also allowed homeless families to stay at the motel for a reduced rate, according to police.

Most recently the motel was the scene of a SWAT standoff with an alleged robbery suspect from Columbus, which ended with the surrender and arrest of Wayne A. Sparks.

Johns said the motel will be shut down for at least one year. A message with Patel was not immediately returned.
