Crime Stoppers: Hotel Robbery
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Police are looking for a man who boldly held up hotels and didn't even wear a disguise.
He did have a pistol and he hit two hotels in less than two hours. Investigators want him behind bars.
Chattanooga Police say the man has some nerve. He hit two hotels on one day, in broad day light.
"They happen more than they should, for the same person to hit two in an hour and a half. That's just bold," says Chattanooga Police Detective Dale Taylor.
Taylor says the suspect hit the Fairfield Inn on Shallowford Village Drive first and then made his way to Tiftonia.
"He was well dressed he was long sleeved, had a hat and glasses but he had glasses on. He was very quick with his operation," says Taylor.
The surveillance video is from Quality Inn on Parker Lane.
Investigators say the man walked into the lobby, asked about the restroom and came back showing a gun. He watches his hands, demands the money and tells the clerk to keep quiet.
"Anybody that has a gun is aggressive, they just are," says Taylor.
Taylor says the armed gunman left the lobby and ran for his getaway car.
Police are convinced someone will know who's behind those sunglasses. They say they want him off the streets before he strikes again.
"Nobody can say what another human is capable of doing, but if they have a gun, it strongly implies they mean business," says Taylor.
The getaway car was a black GMC, possibly a Yukon. If that sparks your memory or if you have any information, pick up the phone and call 698-3333. You could get a cash reward and as always, it's a confidential call.
