“They basically brought the party home with them and the next day he wakes up and he’s been victimized,” Overton said.
The man told police he fell asleep sometime around 4 a.m. and authorities believe that is when she slipped out.
Besides the expensive footwear, the woman reportedly took a Rolex watch and 2,000 in cash. Detectives said the total amount stolen equals $16,000.
“Be careful who you bring home with you and how much access you give them to your house,” Overton advises.
