Ames police are trying to figure out who stole a master key from a local hotel.

Officers were called to the Best Western Plus University Park Inn and Suites in the 2500 block of University Avenue late Sunday. Police collected evidence from some of the rooms, but say it doesn’t appear anything was taken.

There was a vehicle burglary in the area around the same time, but police don’t know yet if that’s connected to the case or not.

The hotel has already changed the locks on the rooms.

Police haven’t made any arrests in the case.
