Two Robbery Suspects Get Away

Sheriff's deputies and Springs police officers swarmed the Cimarron Hills area after a robbery at a hotel Thursday night.

Two suspects walked into the Econo Lodge at the corner of Platte and Peterson just before 8 p.m. and robbed the hotel clerk. One of the men told the clerk he was armed, but never showed a weapon.

Afterwards, the men took off running through the Sand Creek Golf Course and got away from the area.

Authorities brought their K-9 units to the scene to search for the suspects, but after searching for two hours nothing turned up.

Law enforcement didn't get a good description of the men, just that they were last seen wearing all black. They reportedly stole a number of "personal items," but the El Paso County Sheriff's Office didn't say what those items were.
