A hotel employee turned the tables on an armed robber when she grabbed his gun after he dropped it on the counter to pick up the cash.

It happened at a Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night. Surveillance video shows the female employee throwing cash at the hapless robber who dropped his gun on the counter to scoop up the cash.

As he bent down to pick the money up off the floor, the quick-thinking employee grabbed the gun and pointed it and him.

The suspect fled out the front door but he returned moments later demanding his gun. The woman pointed the pistol at him again, sending him fleeing into the parking lot.

The suspect was a white male with a thin build and curly blond hair. Police recovered the gun at the scene, and a white shirt and knit cap were found nearby on McBride Lane.

Update:

The Paducah Police Department announced an arrest in the case on Wednesday.

The hapless robber has been identified as Cory T. Phillips, 26, of West Paducah. Phillips was arrested on Tuesday during a traffic stop.

Paducah PD

Phillips is charged with first-degree robbery and receiving a stolen firearm stemming from the robbery at the Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night, according to WPSD Local 6 News.

The gun recovered at the hotel was reported stolen during a burglary at a home on Adams Street last week.

Police say a McCracken County Sheriff's deputy noticed the driver of a gray Dodge Stratus wasn't wearing his seat belt. He pulled the car over on Bridge Street on Tuesday afternoon. The deputy said the driver, Phillips, was acting nervous.

The deputy searched the car and found an Apple computer that was reported stolen from the same Adams Street home where a gun was taken during a burglary.

The deputy also found a white Stryper t-shirt of the same brand and style as the one the hotel robber wore to conceal his face. A white Stryper t-shirt and knit cap were found discarded near the hotel on Monday night.

A Paducah police detective made the connection between the computer, the gun and the white t-shirts, and Phillips was charged with the 2 robberies. He is currently being held without bond in the McCracken County Jail.

From ABC News:

Fayetteville police said Monday they have found the body of missing 5-year-old Shaniya Davis.

She was last seen on the day she went missing being carried in the arms of a pedophile who was later arrested and charged with kidnapping Shaniya.

Shaniya's mother, Antoinette Nicole Davis, 25, was taken into custody on Friday (Nov. 12) and charged with human trafficking, child abuse involving prostitution and filing a false police report.

The child's remains were located in an area bordered by Highway 87 south and Walker Road - just south of Sanford - during a second day of searching.

The area where police found the body is about 7 miles from the hotel.
