Help Auburn Police identify East Alabama robbery suspect

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

"I told her do not be a hero, just give him what he asks for."

Timothy Stanley, General Manger of the Sleep Inn and Suites in Auburn, says a man walked into the lobby of the hotel Saturday evening at around 8 p.m. and asked the front desk for a room.

"A gentleman came in asking if we had any rooms. She said yes, gave him the rate and told him the whole spiel of what we do here. She asked smoking or nonsmoking, he said smoking and then he took out his revolver, showed it to her and said 'Give me all your money', and she proceeded to give him the cash," says Stanley.  

The man, described as average to heavy set and to be in his 40's or 50's. No one was hurt in the confrontation.

However, this is not the first time the suspect has robbed a business in Auburn.

Security cameras at the Subway on Shug Jordan Parkway captured what is assumed to be the same man demanding money from an employee on Dec. 6th.

His latest holdup was Sunday night at the Hilton Gardens Inn near the Auburn University Regional Airport.

The hotel security cameras revealed video of the suspect in the four-door sedan he is driving.

"This guy goes in. He's not concealing his identity, he's not wearing a mask, so hopefully the public can see him and somebody will recognize him and give us a call," explains Cpt. Lorenza Dorsey of the Auburn Police Division.

Authorities say the man has also robbed locations in Opelika in past weeks.

In each incident, the suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

As for the Sleep Inn and Suites, they are increasing security measures, believing you can never be too careful.

"We actually are going to open up our window on the side, lock our second door after hours and let guests use their key," says Stanley.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Auburn Police Division ay 334-501-3140 or the Tip Line at 334-246-1391.
