According to Coral Gables PD, the women picked up the men Wednesday night at Hillstone restaurant and Morton’s The Steakhouse, both across from each other on miracle mile.
Police said one woman chatted up a man at the bar at Hillstone as he waited for a table. They had drinks before going to the man’s home and had a few more drinks.
That man told police he became light-headed. He suspected he was drugged and when he came to this woman was gone and so was his Rolex.
“It’s concerning, especially I live right down the road, absolutely,” frequent customer Jose Martinez told CBS4. Martinez is married but said, “I’m concerned about my colleagues around here, yes. And my family and everybody else.”READ MORE: COVID-19 Vaccination Sites In South Florida
Meanwhile, across the street at Morton’s another woman struck up a conversation with a man at the bar there. And again, before long they were at his place drinking more cocktails. When the man awoke the next day the woman had disappeared with his Rolex, his cash and his gun.
“This is not an area you would think something like that would happen,” said Morton’s customer Kenia Mas. “Don’t take home people you don’t know. I mean, that’s pretty obvious.”
Coral Gables police released surveillance pictures of the women who targeted the men on miracle mile. Besides a similar M.O., the thieves have similar looks: both are short black women with long black hair and tattoos on their backs.
Police said the type of drug the women used is unclear.MORE NEWS: Miami Police Captain Javier Ortiz Relieved Of Duty
