Armed Robbery In Cozad Early Monday Morning
An armed robbery was reported at the Rodeway Inn just after 2:15 a.m. on Monday morning in Cozad.
Witnesses advised that they saw two males enter the lobby of the Rodeway Inn wearing masks. One of the suspects was described as a thinner white male that possibly had blonde hair and was wearing a red shirt or coat and stood 5’5” to 5’9” inches tall. The second male suspect involved is possibly a Hispanic individual that was wearing a black shirt or coat. A handgun was pointed at the witness and a demand for money was made.
Soon thereafter, both suspects exited the Rodeway Inn and left the area.
Later in the morning on February 20th, near 9 a.m., a purse that had been taken in the Rodeway Inn robbery was recovered by the Gothenburg Police Department at the Cubby’s truck stop near the I-80 interchange in Gothenburg. A possible suspect was seen driving a small U-Haul truck. This male was described as a small thin white male with blonde hair. The U-Haul truck was last seen heading west on I-80.
