SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Police are investigating the second robbery of a hotel, just around the corner from the first.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said as the suspect was leaving, a witness got a good look at the car he got away in.

“We’re trying to determine if there was a copycat situation,” Federspiel said. “If there were conversations. We do know that drug usage, crack cocaine, may have been involved.”

A man walked up to a woman working at the front desk of the Country Inn and Suites in Saginaw. He pulled out a knife and then demanded money.

Federspiel said hotel robberies are unusual and said this may be an inside job.

"Someone who was recently fired, recently quit, or someone who currently works there. We're looking at every angle," Federspiel said.

The vehicle is a dark colored, early 2000 Chevy Impala.
