Authorities are searching for two men who reportedly robbed an Econo Lodge motel in Cimarron Hills Thursday night.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to 6715 Panamint Court around 6:50 p.m. on reports of a robbery and learned that two men dressed in black had robbed the motel's office, taking personal items, and telling employees that they had a weapon, which they never showed.
The men fled on foot, heading west through a nearby golf course.
Colorado State Patrol and Colorado Springs Police canine units assisted with the search.
Canine units were taken off the search around 10 p.m. but, sheriff's deputies will continue searching for the men throughout the night, said El Paso County’s Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Joe Roybal.
