A robber decides to check out cash instead of a room at a local hotel.  The evening of Monday, January 19th, a man walked into the lobby of the Best Western at 6815 West Kellogg.  He tapped the barrel of a handgun on the counter and told the clerk, “Get all your money”.  The robber pulled out a bag for the clerk to place the cash in.  He then ran off with the loot through the courtyard.

The suspect is described as an unknown race male of medium height and large build.  He was wearing a blue sweatshirt with a white hood, black ski mask, light colored pants, white shoes, and black gloves armed with a black semi-auto handgun.
