Santa Fe Police are seeking information after a woman wearing what appears to be Luchador (Mexican Wrestling) mask, claimed to have a gun, and robbed the Holiday Inn Express on Cerrillos Road.
The incident happened just after 9 p.m. Thursday, November 7, 2013.
Surveillance video shows the woman walking into the hotel with what she claims is a gun in her sweater pocket and demanding cash from the employee. The employee told police the suspect said, “Give me the money.” The cashier says he then told the woman they only had $50. He says she then told him, “Give it to me or get (explicative) blasted” meaning she planned to shoot him.
The employee complied and the suspect made off with undisclosed amount of money.
She is seen fleeing the area in a grey or silver Cadillac driven by an unidentified person.
The suspect is described as Hispanic with long, dark, possibly curly hair and the clerk says she may walk with a limp.
If anyone recognizes her or the getaway car they’re asked to call SFPD Sgt. Michele Williams at (505) 955-5227.
