Investigators release sketch of Orlando hotel robbery suspect
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
The Orange County Sheriff's Office has released a composite sketch of a suspect believed to be involved in a string of hotel robberies in the Orlando area.
Detectives are also investigating the possibility that an early morning robbery at a Denny's restaurant on International Drive may also be connected to the hotel incidents.
The sketch released on Wednesday is on of three suspects involved in a robbery at an Econo Lodge in December. Witnesses helped detectives come up with this sketch. They do not have a description of the other two suspects, because they were wearing masks.
In surveillance video taken the Econo Lodge on S. Orange Blossom Trail, suspects are seen entering the hotel lobby. One of the men holds a gun to the clerk's head, demanding money. The suspects escaped with over $500 in cash in that robbery.
If you recognize the man in the sketch, or know anything about this case or other hotel robberies, call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
