Armed Robbery at Salmon Creek Hotel

Thursday, just after 6:40 pm Clark County Deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery that had just occurred at the Quality Inn located at 13207 NE 20th Avenue in Vancouver. WA

The suspect walked into the business and asked the employee if she could make change for a large bill. When the employee opened the register the suspect pulled a handgun out of his pocket, pointed it at the employee and demanded that she give him the cash from the register, which she did.

After the suspect acquired the money he fled on foot.

The suspect was described as follows:

White male
around 40 years of age
approximately 5’10” and medium build
wearing a black cowboy hat, light blue button up long sleeved shirt and blue jeans.

A K-9 track was conducted with negative results.

The business does have a video system which recorded the incident.

When that video becomes available we will attempt to acquire a photo of the suspect and send that out.
