Gambler Drugged and Robbed by Two Women in Florida Casino

Frank Sinatra’s version of Luck be a Lady Tonight won’t be on one video poker-playing tourist’s playlist anytime soon after he was drugged and robbed by two femme fatales at a Florida casino.

The unnamed 69-year old tourist from the Cayman Islands probably thought his luck was in when two younger women approached him at around 2am at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

The next morning, he awoke in his hotel room at the Sleep Inn & Suites in Dania Beach to find himself $1000 poorer and his gold and silver Rolex watch, worth an estimated $15,000, missing.

Surveillance footage from the casino shows the man accepting a drink from one of the women, just after she had put something in it.

The unlucky gambler later told investigators that he felt weird and had trouble moving after drinking the spiked concoction, CCTV showing him leaving the casino supported by the two females.

Both are described as being 35 to 45-years-old, one with long blonde hair and a tattoo on her upper left chest, wearing a black blouse and black pants, according to press reports of the incident.

The other has shoulder-length black hair and was wearing a leopard-patterned jumpsuit.

Police say that a reward of $3000 has been posted for information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information can contact Detective Taylor Powell at 954-518-0153, while anonymous tips can also be given to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477 or online here.
