PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - Investigators were searching Thursday morning for three men who reportedly robbed a Perryville hotel clerk at gunpoint.

Perryville Police Chief Keith Tarrillion said the suspects walked into the lobby of the Super 8 Motel near Interstate 55 and exit 129 just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday.  All three were carrying firearms and demanded money from the clerk.  The suspects then left after the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspects were wearing ski masks, but Tarrillion believes all three are white and between the ages of 18-21.

No customers were in the lobby and the clerk was not hurt.
