JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is seeking a suspect who robbed the Budget Inn at 6545 Ramona Boulevard in the wee hours of the morning on Thursday.

According to JSO Public Information Officer Christian Hancock, the suspect entered the hotel lobby around 3:30 a.m. after the night clerk unlocked the door to confront a person who regularly loiters in the parking lot.
