Robber hits hotel dressed in drag, armed with Taser

An unusual robbery at a Madison County hotel. The clerk behind the desk says that a man wearing a wig and makeup came in around 2AM. He asked for a room and when the clerk took his money to make change he shocked her hand with a stun gun, jumped over the counter, took the money in the register and ran out the front door.

Police say a man matching that same description was caught on security camera at a Berea hotel the night before. In that instance he only asked the clerk for room prices before leaving.

The suspect may have left in a silver Chevy Impala. Richmond Police ask that anyone who saw someone matching that description please give them a call.
