Gun Carrying Employee Thwarts Attempted Hotel Robbery

A hotel clerk with a gun may have thwarted a robbery Friday morning (January 4th).

Investigators say just before 1:00 AM, two African American males entered the Quality Inn at the corner of North Poplar and F Streets in Casper, with their faces concealed.

One of the suspects told the clerk it was a hold-up, making a gun gesture with his hand.

The clerk then pulled a gun from her lunchbox and pointed it at the suspects, who then fled.

The suspects are described as having a thin build and the clerk did not see a weapon at the time of the incident.

Police are checking to see if there’s a connection between this incident and a similar one that happened at a hotel in Laramie earlier in the week.

This is the second time in as many months where an attempted robbery was foiled by someone else carrying a gun in the Casper area.

In December, a customer pulled a gun on a would-be robber at a nail salon.
