Perryville, MO (KSDK)-   Police are looking for three masked bandits who entered a motel lobby around 3:20 a.m. Thursday and robbed the overnight clerk of cash.

Investigators say the trio of gun toting robbers approached the front desk of the motel located just off Interstate 55 at the Perryville exit and announced the robber and demand all the cash.

The desk clerk complied with the suspects instructions and was unharmed in the incident.

All three of the robbers were wearing black or dark blue ski masks over their faces.  One of the robbers was carrying a long rifle, the second a shotgun, and the third suspect had a handgun while committing the crime.

All three of the men left the lobby on foot and may have retreated to a nearby vehicle, although police say no witnesses saw a vehicle in the area or leaving at the time of the hold-up.
