Detectives said 25-year-old James Lenard Harris went into the Quality Inn on North Westover Road on September 23, and handed the night clerk a note that demanded the money from the cash register.

Harris was wanted for robbery by force and burglary.

The clerk did not see a weapon, and said that Harris pushed her aside, reached into the register, and took the money.
