CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Police are investigating a theft that occurred at the Quality Inn Hotel at the end of June.
On June 28, state police at Ebensburg said the suspect poured a complimentary cup of coffee and took a seat in the lounge area before leaving the hotel around 2:50 a.m. Five minutes later, he called the hotel to tell the desk clerk that he was in room 327, and the toilet was overflowing.
The clerk checked the room only to discover it was empty, and when they got back to the desk, the suspect was taking money out of the register.
