A man wearing a Ronald Reagan mask trickled down the economics of an EconoLodge... right into his pocket.

The disguised thief approached the front desk of the Hampton, PA, motel late Wedsneday, drew a gun in front of receptionist Nancy Bane, and pointed to the cash register, according to Pittsburgh Live.

"'He never uttered a word,' said Bane, shaken Thursday but uninjured after the thief who stole some for the Gipper made off with a little less than $1,000 from the EconoLodge off Route 8," the website reported.

Several guests were staying at the motel when the robbery went down, but because it happened so quickly, none witnessed it, according to the motel's bar manager.
