A Miami man says he woke up in a daze last week to find that a woman he'd met at a club the prior evening robbed him of more than $600,000 worth of jewelry, including a Rolex Daytona Rainbow watch, according to police.

The Miami Police Department (MPD) has posted video of the suspect accompanying the man in an apartment building before she allegedly made off with the Rainbow, a Rolex Sky-Dweller, several gold Franco bracelets, Cartier sunglasses, and a rose-gold diamond ring.

Stating that the suspect "drugged the victim's drink," the department asks the public for help in identifying the alleged offender. She is described as white, about 5'9" and 140 pounds with long black hair, and appears to be in her 30s. Police urge anyone who recognizes her to call the department at 305-603-6030 or to contact CrimeStoppers.

According to an incident report obtained by New Times (attached below), the man says that after meeting the woman at the popular Miami club Dirty Rabbit, he brought her back to his apartment for a nightcap at 5:30 a.m. on May 8. He claims he woke up at noon and realized that the woman had made off with the watches and jewelry from his safe.
Surveillance footage from the building, which appears to be the Paramount Miami Worldcenter, shows the pair heading to the man's apartment. The alleged victim told police he had one drink with the woman before falling asleep.

The woman, who is wearing knee-high heeled boots and a revealing top, is captured on video leaving the luxury building alone carrying a blue plastic drink cup.

South Florida is rife with tales of thieves who seduce men at nightclubs and bars in order to drug and rob them.

This past December, after bringing home two women he met at a bar, a Fort Lauderdale man woke up to discover his $25,000 Rolex was missing along with his platinum American Express credit card, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

In March, a woman was arrested on charges of stealing more than $100,000 worth of Rolexes, cash, and jewelry from men she'd met at clubs, including Space and E11even.
