Robbers Take Cash and Car
On 20 December 2013 at approximately 4:10 PM officers of the West Fargo Police Department responded to the Howard Johnson Motel 525 Main Ave E on the report of a robbery. The victim reported $4600 in cash and a 2005 light blue Ford Mustang with ND license plates LC37331 was stolen. The victim from Wahpeton had met the suspects at the motel in response to an internet posting on CraigslList. One suspect left the room under the pretense of obtaining additional money to pay for the vehicle. A second suspect then entered the room, demanded the money initially paid by the first suspect and fled with the $4600 and the victim’s coat. The suspects left the area in the victim’s mustang. The matter is under investigation.
