Police seek suspect in motel robbery

Amarillo, TX - Officers arrived to a call at the Red Roof Inn at 6800 West I-40 at 6:48 p.m Friday on a robbery.

Police described the suspect as a black male wearing a dark colored hooded jacket, a dark colored knit cap, a dark bandana over his face, white gloves, and jeans.
