Miami cops are searching for a vape-huffing clubgoer accused of swiping $200,000 worth of luxury timepieces from a man she met out.
The victim told police that he recently met a woman named Cynthia at a venue and brought her to his luxury apartment around 1:30 a.m. Saturday to socialize further, CBSMiami reported.
The man said he eventually fell asleep and woke up to discover his cache of high-end watches — and Cynthia — nowhere in sight.
The woman was captured on surveillance footage entering an elevator at 10:30 a.m. while puffing on a vape and leaving the building in a ride share, cops said.
Miami police warned night crawlers to be careful when mingling with strangers and said pricey heists have now become commonplace after late-night hookups.
“When you get to know someone or meet them for the first time, they are still considered to be a stranger, so we do not recommend you invite them up to your place or residence,” Miami cop Kiera Delva told CBS Miami. “Normally places have a lounge area where people can sit around or talk and that is what is recommended.”
Delva said the suspect would likely prey on someone again — and that men should mind their Movados while out on the town.
“She is quite brazen,” Delva said. “While she does not appear to have been on our radar screen in the past, there is no doubt she will strike again.”
No arrests have been made in the case.
