Suspect In Three Robberies Caught

Three robberies take place within just blocks of each other, but finally, police catch a suspect.

They were first called out to the Hampton Inn on Troup Highway sometime early this morning where they were told a man robbed the hotel at gunpoint. A short time later, they were called to another robbery at the Ramada Inn just down the road. While there, police found a suspect allegedly robbing a woman behind Click's Billiards.

Police arrested 20 year old Edwin Portillo of Tyler who is now charged with three counts of robbery.
