MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It was one of those South Beach nights for Noel Blenman – drinks at club Twist with two new friends.
“I met these two nice guys, bought them a drink,” he said. “Chilling out, as we do, having a conversation.”
The 43-year-old man said he met the men on the night of October 6th.
When last call was announced, Blenman wasn’t ready to end the party.
“Club is closing down so we decided it’s still early, we can hang out have some drinks at my place and everything,” he said.
Blenman said this is not something he normally does, bringing strangers into his home, but he says they really clicked.
Surveillance video captured the three going into the lobby of his building.
“We had some more drinks, we hang out, we talk,” Blenman explained. “And then all of a sudden, I felt really not myself anymore. I passed out and there’s no way I would pass out bringing strangers into my home.”
He wouldn’t wake up until 2 p.m. the next day.
Blenman said he immediately noticed something wasn’t right.
Drawers where open, his personal items moved around and several things missing.
“Stole everything from me, from money to jewelry, laptop, iPad, watches,” he said.
The thieves even stole a bucket from underneath the sink to put all of their stolen items in.
Surveillance video shows the two thieves, along with that bucket, packed with thousands of dollars worth of goods.
“I really truly believe that I was drugged and I don’t take drugs, something was put into my drink,” Blenman said.
Police are asking people to take a good look at these guys. One of them has long distinctive dreadlocks.
Blenman, of course, wants to see them in jail.
He said his trust of strangers has definitely been shaken.
“I thought they were truly really good guys,” he said.
