On December 27, 2012 at approximately 1000 hours, a black male walked up to the registration counter of the Motel 6 and confronted the front desk clerk. The suspect stated he had a gun in his right jacket pocket and demanded the money from the register.

The suspect was last seen in the parking lot of the hotel on foot walking toward Delk Road.
The Marietta Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect through the video footage obtained of the robbery.
