RPD Arrests Suspect in Connection with Six Raleigh Hotel Robberies

RPD officers arrested Erik Greyson Huggins, 28, of 2616 Layden St., on Nov. 26 in connection with robbing six Raleigh hotels in the past week.

The incidents occurred on the following dates and locations:
  •     Rodeway Inn, at 2641 Appliance Court, at 5:30 a.m. Sunday
  •     Comfort Inn, at 2539 S. Saunders St., at 7:25 p.m. Monday
  •     Wingate Inn, at 2610 Westinghouse Blvd., at 7:38 p.m. Tuesday
  •     Comfort Suites, at 4440 Capital Blvd., at 12:47 a.m. Friday
  •     Sheraton Hotel, at 421 S. Salisbury St., at 5:37 a.m. Friday
  •     Red Roof Inn, at 1813 S. Saunders St., at 5:53 a.m. Friday
Huggins is also charged with robbing two men of $600 at the Play N Trade in Garner on Wednesday. He was caught trespassing early Saturday at a home on North Hills Drive in Raleigh.

Huggins either verbally threatened victims or showed them a knife or handgun.

Due to the similarity of the suspect’s description and the clothing captured in surveillance photos, it is believed that Huggins was also was responsible for a hotel robbery committed in Cary on Nov. 23.

In addition, two motel robberies reported this week in Garner may be related.

Huggins has been taken into custody and transported to the Wake County Jail. The investigation of the cases is continuing.
