Myrtle Beach police are searching for a man suspected in at least two armed robberies, according to Capt. David Knipes.
The most recent incident occurred Wednesday at the Holiday Shores at 7501 N. Ocean Blvd., Knipes said.
A man went into the hotel office and asked about a room, Knipes said. The man then left and returned soon afterward. The man pulled a gun from under his shirt and demanded money from the hotel employee.
Never miss a local story.
The man took money from the cash register before he left the office and ran away.
Knipes said the man may be the same person who robbed a payday lender during the weekend.
In that incident a man armed with a handgun robbed a check cashing business about 2 p.m. Saturday at 1519 N. Kings Highway, police said. The robber forced the employee to the ground and took all the money in the cash drawer before running from the business.
