Police are searching for a woman who allegedly drugged a man that she met at club before stealing $600k worth of his jewellery.
Police say the incident took place earlier this month (8 May) after the man brought the unidentified woman back to his building in downtown Miami on the 800 block of Northeast 1st Street.
According to police officers, some of the items that were stolen include a Rolex Daytona rainbow watch set with diamonds, a Sky-Dweller Rolex watch, a gold chain, Franco gold bracelets, Cartier sunglasses and a rose gold diamond ring.
According to a recent news release from the Miami Police Department, which was shared to Twitter on Wednesday (17 May), the man first met the woman at a club on 7 May and brought her back to his place at approximately 5:30 a.m. the next morning.
The man, who has not yet been publicly identified, said he had just one drink with the woman at his apartment and subsequently fell fast asleep.
They added that when the man finally awoke at noon the next day, he found his safe had been opened and over half a million dollars worth of jewellery had been ransacked, with the woman nowhere to be seen.
He then immediately notified the authorities.
Police have since urged the public to contact them if they recognised her from security camera footage.
The release reads: "We need assistance identifying the woman seen on this video. She drugged victim’s drink and once he fell asleep, she took $600k of victim’s jewellery."
The 45-second-long security footage in question shows the pair entering the building a decent amount of time before the woman left unaccompanied.
When the woman leaves the building, however, she can be seen carrying two cups with police suspecting that she used one of them to drug the alleged victim.
"She's taking the Solo cup that she drank because it has her DNA," said MPD spokesman Officer Michael Vega, according to WSVN.
"She's taking his Solo cup because it has not only his DNA, but it also has whatever drugs she put in."
The woman is described by authorities as being around '5’8 to 5’10', in her mid 30s, about 140 pounds and with long black hair.
Officers are asking anyone with information on the woman’s identity to call the Miami Police Department at (305) 603-6030 or to submit a tip via the CrimeStopper305 website.
