DOVER, Del.- Dover police say a traffic stop led to the arrests of two suspects responsible for a hotel room robbery that occurred over the weekend. 

Police said the crime happened at around 5:15 a.m. Sunday at Dover Inn located at 428 N. DuPont Highway.

Police said the crime happened at around 5:15 a.m. Sunday, March 13. According to officers, three men contacted the victims, went inside their hotel room and displayed firearms, demanding money.

According to police, the victims stated that one of the men was holding a small handgun, while another was holding a rifle. Police said all three suspects ran away through a window at the back of the room. There were no reported injuries.

Police said it was determined through interviews of the suspects that they were involved in the robbery at the Dover Inn. Both were charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and second-degree conspiracy.

Harris and Tolson are each being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $80,400 secured bond.
