Key Largo Motel Clerk Robbed At Gunpoint

KEY LARGO (CBS4) – The search is on for a man who robbed a Key Largo motel clerk at gunpoint.

The clerk told Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies that he was in a back office of the Key West Inn on Ocean Drive doing paperwork at 3 a.m. Sunday when he heard a noise near the front desk. When he walked up front, he saw a man with a gun. The man said “give me all your money.”

The sheriff’s office says the clerk handed the suspect the cash drawer. Investigators say the suspect then tore the phone from the wall and fled on foot, after stuffing the money into a black bag.

Deputies searched the area but did not catch the suspect.
