MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami Police is investigating the report of a theft where a man claimed to have been drugged and robbed of over $600,000 worth of jewelry.

According to the victim, he arrived at his home, along the 800 block of Northeast First Avenue, at around 5:30 a.m. on May 8, with a woman he had met at Dirty Rabbit bar and dance club in Wynwood earlier that night.

After sharing a drink at his apartment, police said, the victim fell asleep.

“And he was having some drinks, met this lady, and said, ‘Hey, let’s go back to my apartment,'” Miami Police Officer Michael Vega said. “She offered to pour him a drink, he begins to sip on his drink, and about three sips in, he falls asleep,” Vega said.

Upon waking up around noon, the victim discovered his safe open, jewelry missing, and the female suspect gone.

“His safe is opened, all his jewelry is gone, and the female is nowhere to be seen,” Vega said.

The stolen items include a Rolex Daytona Rainbow watch adorned with diamonds, a Sky-Dweller Rolex, a gold chain, Franco gold bracelets, Cartier sunglasses, and a rose gold diamond ring.

Surveillance footage obtained by authorities captured the female suspect arriving with the victim and her subsequent departure from the building.

The suspect is described as a woman in her mid-30s who stands between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighs around 140 pounds and has long black hair.

“We noticed that she has two Solo cups in her hands, so she took hers, so we don’t get DNA from that cup, and she takes the one she served him, so that we don’t see what she put in that drink to drug him,” Vega said. “We suspect that she’s done it before.”

Police have a warning for the late-night party crowd.

“We always say, be careful, do not take strangers home, and here we have it again,” Vega said.

Miami Police are actively investigating the incident and urging anyone with information related to the case or the suspect’s identity to come forward.

If you have any information on this theft or the suspect’s whereabouts, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
