Hotel Robbery Sends One To Jail
08/21/2017

(KAIR)--The robbery of an Atchison hotel lands an Atchison man behind bars.

Arrested in connection with the alleged early Sunday morning crime is 50-year-old Timothy Cafferty. “It was shortly before 5:30 Sunday morning when officers responded to a robbery that had occurred at the AmericInn, located at 500 U.S. 73 Highway,” Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News. “As officers arrived on the scene, they took a suspect into custody about a block from the [hotel]. It was determined that he had approached the hotel counter and demanded money from the clerk at the AmericInn.”

Wilson, who said Cafferty, when taken into custody, had a non-lethal weapon in his possession. “Officers found what appeared to be a revolver styled handgun in the suspect's waistband, which was found to be an air pistol.”

Cafferty was arrested on charges including robbery and obstructing law enforcement, which stems from what Wilson calls a struggle with police as they attempted to make an arrest.

Following his apprehension Cafferty was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
