Armed Robbers Sought in Raritan Motel Incident
Four men with a submachine gun stole $2,500 from Super 8 on Route 202, prosecutor says.
A reward is being offered in the investigation of an armed robbery that occurred Tuesday at the Super 8 Motel on Route 202 in Raritan, according to Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano.
The reward is set at up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest of the individuals responsible for the robbery, Soriano said.
Soriano said that at about 2:04 a.m. Tuesday, four men entered the main lobby of the Super 8 Motel with a submachine gun. Once inside the lobby, Soriano said, the robbers physically forced a female guest and motel clerk into the main office.
After ransacking the office, Soriano said, the men left the building.
Soriano said the clerk of the motel called 911 at 2:13 a.m. to report the incident.
The Somerset County Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Squad and Raritan Borough Police Department responded to the scene to investigate the case. Soriano said they believe the individuals arrived and left the motel in a dark-colored sedan with a sun roof.
