Armed and Sulfurous

Hotel robber claims to be Satan, clerk tells police

Tribune Staff Report

MISHAWAKA — A man claiming to be Satan robbed a hotel early this morning.

According to police, the man, wearing a black leather coat and hat, entered the Comfort Inn and Suites, 5640 N. Main St., about 4 a.m. and demanded money.

The hotel’s clerk told the man the money already had been deposited for the night. The man replied that there still had to be money in the register.

The man, who police said kept his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun, then asked the clerk’s name and said that his name was Satan.

The clerk then gave the man about $200 and he fled on foot, but not before stopping to take a USA Today newspaper from the counter, according to police.


Wow, looks like things are tough all over! Even Lucifer is hard up. I'm glad to see he took some reading material, though. Apparently the Lord of the Underworld likes to keep up with things. I'm sure he's quite interested in the political campaign!
