Crime resurfaces at ex-Colonial Motel

CANFIELD — Just one week after the former Canfield Colonial Motel was reopened as a monastery and outreach facility, two people were arrested there on drug-trafficking and prostitution charges.

The Mahoning County Sheriff’s office, with the help of the Mahoning Valley Law Enforcement Task Force and Canfield Police Department, arrested Jenny “Sierra” Dove, 31, and Greg Senediak, 34, both of Austintown, on Tuesday at the motel, 7815 Akron Canfield Road.

Detective Lenny Sliwinski, of the sheriff’s office, said the departments began investigating Dove and Senediak last week after a confidential informant called Canfield police with a tip that the two were selling drugs and soliciting sex from their motel room.

“We went in [Tuesday] and did a couple of undercover buys,” Sliwinski said.

Dove was charged with trafficking in drugs and soliciting prostitution after selling Xanax pills to an undercover officer and also offering him oral sex for money, according to the report. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing today in Mahoning County Area Court, Canfield.

Senediak was charged with trafficking in drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia after he attempted to sell Xanax pills to a different undercover officer outside the motel, according to a Canfield police report. He will appear in Mahoning County Area Court, Canfield, on March 19 for a preliminary hearing.
