A hotel employee told police that Nieves walked into the lobby around 4 a.m. holding what appeared to be a gun in his pocket. He then allegedly demanded money from the front desk register.
Police say Nieves made off with $250 in cash.
They say he is being held at Putnam County Correctional Facility.
