The Emporia Police Department arrested a suspected wanted in connection with an attempted robbery Tuesday morning.

According to a statement from the Emporia Police Department, in the early morning hours Tuesday, patrol officers were dispatched to the Econo Lodge Hotel at 2511 W. 18th Ave. in reference to an attempted robbery.

“Officers were unable to locate the suspect immediately, however, through diligent searching, Emporia Police officers found surveillance video of the suspect before and after the robbery attempt,” read the statement from Emporia Police Captain David DeVries.

Later that morning, the Emporia Police Investigations Division made a positive identification of the suspect, 19-year-old Jeremy David Spicer.

Spicer was arrested and ultimately confined at the Lyon County Detention Center pending formal charges of attempted robbery, aggravated assault and making false information.
