Motel 'repairman' was really a crook

Posted: Updated:

A Tifton motel guest got a rude awakening when he found another man inside his room.

Police were called to the Days Inn on Highway 82 in Tifton around ten Wednesday night.

A guest told them he woke up and saw a man standing in his room.

The intruder told him he was there to fix the toilet, but then he took off with the guest's wallet.

Surveillance video shows the man checking doors at the motel to see if they're locked.

He appeared to use some sort of key card to try to get in.
