DUNDEE, Mich. – Police are seeking the public’s help to identify a person who stole cash from a hotel after posing as a Door Dash delivery driver on Sunday.

The Dundee Police Department says just before midnight, the suspect faked a delivery at the Hampton Inn & Suites at 401 Powell Drive.

The suspect reportedly returned to the lobby after the “delivery” to notify a clerk that a man was laying on the floor unconscious upstairs. Police say that after the clerk left to check on the situation, the suspect walked behind the desk counter and stole $275 from a cash drawer.

Officials say the suspect’s report of an unconscious man was false.

The suspect reportedly fled the scene in a gray or silver four-door sedan. A video of the suspect in question can be seen in the police department’s Facebook post below.
