North Platte Man Accused of Stealing from Hotel Employer

Robert Richards

A 29-year-old North Platte man has been accused of stealing more than $3,400 from a Super 8 motel where he was employed.

Court records say Robert "Robbie" Richards faces a felony theft charge.

Richards was arrested earlier this month after a manager at the motel contacted police. Authorities say the manager suspected that Richards skimmed cash from customers' room payments from Oct. 5 of last year until Feb. 8.

Richards has bonded out of jail.
