CALEXICO — The Police Department here is looking for the person who robbed the Holiday Inn on Imperial Avenue on Sunday morning.
Calexico police Sgt. Jim Neujahr said the desk clerk who was robbed told police a man walked into the lobby at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, "inquired about a room and then drew a revolver."
After forcing the desk clerk to lie face down on the floor, the thief pilfered an undisclosed amount of money from the register and left.
The desk clerk said he didn't see how the bandit escaped because the clerk stayed on the floor for several minutes, according to Neujahr.
