    There should be some type of alarm system to alert the staff that someone is approaching the front desk , more so evenings, be they guests or staff, robbers pick isolated areas. Security have their checks to make and other duties as well.Um glad the staff member was not seriously hurt. Area businesses may need to step up their vigilance.

    We need some strong laws here. These critters are seen walking around by everyone. The look of desperation in their faces. Stop pitying these people and slapping their wrist. Time to go middle east on them. Pass a law where thieves get their hands cut off. Cant rob or slash people with stumps at your wrist.

    6 ft 2 in 300 lbs…That is a huge man. There must be some mother out there who knows this was their child. Especially with the added description on the clothing. Police had better apprehend this one or we will be looking at gated resorts soon like in Jamaica!
