MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) — Detectives in Murfreesboro are investigating a robbery and a theft at two hotels on the same street on Saturday.

The first was at the Country Inn and Suites on Armory Drive at 4:20 a.m.

According to the police report, the clerk was sitting in the front office, when a man ran in with a gun and said, “Don’t move, stay where you are.”

The suspect took cash from the register.

About four hours later at the Red Roof Inn just down the road, a clerk arrived at work and noticed money was missing from the register.

He looked back at their surveillance and said a man wearing a mask walked in with a gun and went behind the front desk.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance video from both locations.
