Morrin Bar & Hotel robbed at gunpoint, vehicle ditched and torched

Written by Terri Huxley

Two people entered the Morrin Bar & Hotel with shotguns at approximately 7:25 p.m. on Thurs. Feb. 13.

They demanded money from the VLTs, ATMs and cash register.

Four people including two staff members were in the building at the time, two of which were on the main floor.

The one suspect approached requesting the money while the other stayed at the door. 

The one male is described as heavier set and is approximately 6 feet tall with a ‘different stride’.

The second by the door was shorter.

Both wore black masks – one with red accents, gloves, blue jeans and black hoodies. 

They left the building and no one was injured. 

They fled north of the village where they ditched the vehicle and set it on fire.

Police and the Morrin Fire Department are on scene roughly 1 mile northwest of Morrin as the investigation is still active.
