Police want men to think twice before they bring a sexy woman home.
Broward Sheriff’s Office announced Friday that they are looking for a woman in her 20s or women who are seducing men, drugging them and then robbing them blind.
In her latest heist, the unidentified woman took about $6,000 in cash and four luxury watches from Robert Cournoyer. He met her in March at an upscale restaurant called YOLO (You Only Live Once) on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
Cournoyer, 45, told police he was attracted to her exotic beauty. She told him her name was Crystal and gave him her phone number. He thought they had hit it off, so they went to a nearby lounge called Vibe and later his home in Pompano Beach.
Crystal “made him a cocktail -- vodka drink that took her about a half hour to make,” said Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Dani Moschella. “He took a sip while she drank directly from the bottle. The next thing he remembers, he was waking up the following afternoon. Crystal was gone.”
And so were his watches -- two Rolexes, one Cartier and one Paniere -- worth about $100,000. She deleted her number from his cell phone.
Detectives released a composite sketch with a warning: “Watch out for Crystal.” They think she may have done this before and there may be other women involved.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Ron Cusumano at 954-786-4200 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. There is a $1,000 reward for tips leading to an arrest.
