Cody Police are on the lookout for a woman who robbed a hotel at gunpoint early Monday morning.
According to the Cody Police Department, the front desk clerk at the Holiday Inn called law enforcement around 5 a.m. Monday to report a robbery.
The clerk told police a masked woman wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a black gator-type face mask demanded money from the front desk clerk after lifting the side of her sweatshirt to expose a holstered pistol.
The clerk complied, placing money in a bag and giving to the suspect, who then walked out the door and disappeared.
When police arrived and canvassed the area, there was no sign of the robber.
The Cody Police Department issued a statement Monday asking for the public’s help in tracking down the woman, who is described as being between 20 and 30 years old, between 5 feet, 3 inches tall and 5 feet, 7 inches tall.
The Department asks anyone who may have information on this case to contact Det. Sgt. Trapp Heydenberk at 307-527-8700.
