HOTEL ROBBED: Police Arrest Man For Robbery And Car Chase
Police said they arrested a man after he robbed a hotel and then raced through West Des Moines trying to get away.
Des Moines Police said it all started around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning at the Econo Lodge on Merle Hay Road when a man came in with a gun demanding money. The clerk gave him some cash and the man took off, according to police.
West Des Moines Police said they were later chasing a suspect back into Des Moines. The chase ended when the driver hit a snow drift on the corner of Hubbell and Ankeny Avenue.
When police checked out the driver and the car, they realized that both matched the descriptions for the hotel robbery.
Authorities took 25-year-old Kourtney Hall into custody. Hall is charged with first-degree robbery, eluding police and driving while barred.
Hall is being held in the Polk County Jail on a $32,000 bond.
