APD Investigating Armed Motel Robbery

The Amarillo Police Department is investigating the armed robbery of a motel that took place last night.

APD reports that officers were sent to the Executive Inn at 2100 S. Coulter last night on the report of a robbery. A masked suspect had walked through the front door of the motel with a long sleeve shirt and showed the employee a handgun hidden inside of his waistband. The suspect then put his hand on the weapon and demanded money.

The employee gave the suspect money from the register and the suspect ran out of the front door.

The suspect was a white or Hispanic male and appeared to have a hat on or something that covered his face. The suspect appeared to have a dark hooded sweatshirt over a lighter undershirt and dark pants.

No person was injured in the incident and no arrests have been made.

If you have any information about this case, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 806-374-4400.
