We have exclusive video of the robbery that happened Saturday morning at the Microtel Inn in Beckley Saturday. In the video, the alleged robber, who police describe as a five-foot six, African American male walks in while a family is sitting down for breakfast. We spoke with a woman from Beckley who wants to remain anonymous.
“I think that it’s a very inhumane crime to involve small, innocent children to such a violent crime and situation,” she said.
The suspect turns the corner and then points the gun at the family. He continues into the office and takes the money drawer and runs back past the family as they watch in horror. It only took the man a few minutes to get in, take the cash, and leave.
“I hope that they catch him and I hope that justice is served for him and I hope the family gets closure,” the woman said.
The man in this surveillance video is still at large and If recognize him you are urged to contact the Beckley Police Department.
