A poker-playing tourist is drugged by two unknown women, brought back to his hotel room and burglarized. Detectives are releasing video of the Sept. 13 incident that began at the Hard Rock Casino and ended in a Dania Beach hotel room in order to help identify the suspects.

Security video from the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood shows the victim around 2 a.m. playing poker when he was approached by two women who started a conversation with him. While at the slot machines the security video shows the blonde-haired suspect pouring a substance into the victim’s drink and then handing it to him. Immediately after taking it, he said he felt drugged and had difficulty moving.

One of the suspects assisted him with getting a rideshare vehicle and walked with him outside. They were all dropped off at the Sleep Inn & Suites in Dania Beach.

According to the victim as soon as he entered his hotel room he lost consciousness. When he woke up in the morning he discovered $1,000 and a gold and silver Rolex worth approximately $15,000 were missing.

One suspect has blonde hair, a tattoo on her upper left chest and is between 35 to 45 years old. She wore a black blouse and black pants. The second suspect is also 35 to 45 years old and was wearing a leopard jumpsuit.
