Robbers Escape With Cash From Fort Lauderdale Hotel Register

Two suspects entered a Fort Lauderdale La Quinta Inn last month, removed an undisclosed amount of cash from a register and fled in an unknown direction, Fort Lauderdale Police officials said.

About 7:45 a.m. May 28, the suspects entered the La Quinta at 5070 North State Road 7 and walked toward an employee, implying that they were armed, authorities said. The pair requested that the hotel worker escort them into an office, where they requested that the employee open the safe.

Access to the safe was not available for the suspects, police said. Then, they removed cash from the register and exited.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Michael Benson at 954-828-6561 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
