Hernando deputies investigate motel robbery

SPRING HILL — Two men wearing bandannas robbed a lobby clerk Saturday night at a Motel 6, authorities said.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office is asking the public for tips to help solve the crime.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. at the motel, 6172 Commercial Way. The clerk told deputies he was behind the customer service desk when two men, one of them with a handgun, suddenly appeared.

The suspect with the gun pointed it at the clerk, demanded that he open the cash register, then ordered him to the ground.

After emptying the register, both suspects ran. The clerk wasn't injured.

Anyone with information about the crime was asked to call Det. Chris Kraftat at (352) 797-3717. To report tips anonymously, call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-990-8477.
