A visitor to a downtown hotel became a unwanted guest when he stole hundreds of dollars in cash.
On Thursday evening, employees at the Crystal Hotel had left the back room where the cash was kept, and a man entered and stole $750. Staff returned just in time to see the man flee. Fortunately, he was known to employees and police.
At 3:15 a.m. on Friday he was found while police investigated another matter.
A 23-year-old Brandon man was arrested for theft and released to attend court in July.
