Hotel Robbery Suspect Arrested

A robbery suspect is now behind bars, thanks to a tip from someone who recognized him from the hotel's surveillance video.

One day last week, a man walked into the Baymont Inn on Abercorn, asked about room rates, then left. He came back a few minutes later with a gun, pointed it at the clerk and demanded money. After the clerk handed it over, Johnson took off.

Around noon today, 21-year-old Shaheen Johnson was arrested for robbing the Baymont.
