(Wyo.)-Casper Police Say Armed Hotel Clerk Foiled Robbery

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 01/05/2013 10:29 AM

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Police in Casper say a hotel clerk used a gun she kept in her lunch box to foil a robbery attempt.

Two masked men entered the Quality Inn on Poplar Street before 1 a.m. on Friday and announced they were staging a robbery.

The two men ran from the building after the female clerk pulled out her handgun.

A spokeswoman for the Casper Police Department says the two remain at large.

The Casper robbery attempt came three days after a pair of men with bandannas over their faces robbed a hotel in Laramie. The men in that case made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and have not been captured.

Police are investigating whether the two cases are connected.
