Before the flight, he reportedly lost consciousness after drinking too much. When he woke up, he saw that the Rolex had disappeared. Also missing was his Cuban link chain and Gucci-branded eyewear.

On Saturday, the police searched the hotel room. Officers found a used condom in the bathroom. The man denied knowing how he got there.

The following day, a suspect, identified as Taylor Sharde, was charged with grand larceny over $25,000, KLASa local television station, reported.

It was Friday when Sharde and the man first met on the Wynn gambling floor. The couple then went up to the man’s hotel room.

Sharde took off her clothes, put on the bathrobe and asked for an “intimate kit” at the hotel reception, KLAS said. Later, she left the hotel by taxi.

On Sunday, an undercover officer from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) spotted Sharde at the Cosmopolitan. She was interrogated.

Officers noticed that she was wearing a Rolex watch on her left wrist. She said the watch belonged to her.

Police have seized the Rolex and are awaiting verification of who is the rightful owner, KLAS said.

Previous flights

There have been several other thefts of expensive watches from Las Vegas hotels in recent years.

For example, a woman who allegedly stole a $35,000 watch from a man in a Cosmopolitan room on June 21 was recently arrested. Deonna McCray, 32, of Los Angeles, has been charged with grand larceny and burglary for the theft of the Rolex Daytona, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The man was in the gaming room of The Cosmopolitan casino. Two women approached him. One of them was McCray. The man suspected that the two were prostitutes.

When the women told him they were tired and hungry, the man gave her the key to his hotel room. But he claimed he had not had sex with them.

LVMPD officers were contacted and identified the thief as McCray after interviewing the second woman, the man, and reviewing surveillance video.

Previously, McCray allegedly stole a $20,000 Rolex and cash in a separate incident, the Review-Journal said. In a separate incident, she also allegedly stole a luxury Bulova watch, along with around $35,000 in cash, the report added. Both incidents took place in Las Vegas.

Drugged man, stolen watch

In yet another incident last month, two women allegedly forcefully poured liquid down the throat of a man staying at the Encore Las Vegas.

He became dizzy and when he awoke to find his $60,000 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch, $1,500 in casino chips and a stolen credit card, police said.

One of the suspects, Danette Colbert, 45, has been charged with grand larceny over $25,000 and administering a drug to aid in the commission of a crime, the Review-Journal reported. She has a similar prior charge pending.

More recent watch thefts

In June, cops revealed that an alleged prostitute stole a Patek Philippe watch from a man at a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. The watch was valued at around $100,000. The man believes the suspect drugged him.

The woman, later identified as Sarah Richards, 32, of Las Vegas, was later spotted by an LVMPD undercover officer at another hotel on the Strip.

She was charged with counts related to prostitution, KLAS said. She was also charged with burglary and grand larceny for stealing a watch, KLAS added.

The watch owner claimed that Richards first met him at the hotel bar. The two then went up to his hotel room.

In May, another Patek Phillipe watch, worth an estimated $50,000 – and $50,500 in cash – was stolen from a room at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.

The suspect has been identified as 23-year-old Anniajah Pratt. She was charged with robbery, KVVU, another local TV station, reported. The watch owner apparently invited the woman to his hotel room after hanging out at a casino bar earlier that night.
