A woman is believed to have robbed the Holiday Inn in the early hours of Monday, March 14. Now, the Cody Police Department is looking for anyone with information on the crime.
At approximately 5:09 a.m., Cody Police Officers responded to the Holiday Inn (1701 Sheridan Avenue) on a report of a robbery at the front desk. Officers arrived by 5:12 a.m. but were unable to locate the suspect.
The suspect is a 20-30-year-old female of medium build between 5’3” and 5’7” tall.
Witnesses say the suspect wore a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a black gator-type face mask. There are currently no identified suspects.
According to witnesses, a masked female wearing a black hooded sweatshirt entered the hotel’s front door and approached a front desk clerk. The suspect demanded money, lifting the side of her sweatshirt to expose a holstered pistol on her hip.
