Suspect Steals From Sleeping Guests At Anderson Hotel

Posted: Updated:

Police in Anderson are asking for your help identifying a suspect, or suspects, accused of stealing from hotel guests while they were sleeping.

Guests at the Holiday Inn on Clemson Boulevard told authorities they woke up in the morning to find items missing from the room.

The alleged thief made off with everything from credit cards and a cell phone to flip flops.

The incident was discovered on the morning of June 29, according to an incident report.

Police also think this theft is connected to another case that happened on the 26th at Monogram Me on Murray Avenue.

"Obviously, they were looking for things other than merchandise in the store," says Amy Bolt, an employee at the store.

Bolt says the man distracted her while the woman stole her purse. 

Police say the suspect, or suspects, later made several purchases using the stolen cards.  Surveillance photos of the suspects was released Wednesday.
