Multiple Hotel Armed Robberies

Orlando, Florida — There have been more than a dozen hotel robberies in the Orlando area since December of 2013. The latest robbery occurred on January 23, 2014, at approximately 3:30 a.m., at the Red Roof Inn on I-Drive.

While police would not release the total amount of cash that has been stolen, they did say they do not have any suspects or leads. Officials said they do know it is three armed men wearing ski masks and they might be driving a tan SUV.

The men have hit hotels in Orlando, Davenport, Altamonte Springs, Lake Mary, and Maitland; the men may also be responsible for restaurant robberies in the area.

Hotel clerks are being asked to report anything suspicious, and report anyone that looks suspicious. Officials said it is better to be safe than sorry.

A 10,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to the capture of the armed robbery suspects. If you have any information, you are urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-8477.
