MEMPHIS, Tenn. May 18 2017— Two men are accused of pretending to be housekeeping staff to enter rooms at the Guest House at Graceland.
Officers were called to the hotel around 6 a.m. Sunday, where a security officer observed the suspicious activity of the men and relayed complaints about the two men entering rooms, posing as housekeeping staff.
He said he saw the suspects driving toward the exit, and police were able to detain them.
