Lexington police are searching for a woman who robbed a Hamburg-area motel armed with pepper spray.
The woman entered the Comfort Inn on Buena Vista Road about 3 a.m. Tuesday wearing a white bandanna and a gray hoodie, police said. She handed the clerk a note, and then left with an undetermined amount of cash. The Comfort Inn is off Winchester Road near Interstate 75.
The woman headed toward a nearby Cracker Barrel. Police plan to look at video surveillance from the hotel later Tuesday to determine more details.
A gray car might be involved, police said. No arrests have been made.
