A Baltimore woman is accused of stealing a $12,000 watch from a Las Vegas casino this week while appearing in court on charges of stealing a $100,000 watch in June. This week, officers discovered a watch in the suspect’s body.
Sara Richards, 33, was in Las Vegas to face charges of allegedly stealing a $100,000 watch. Richards had a court date on December 12.
A man claims he met Richards on June 4 at a hotel bar on the Las Vegas Strip. The couple reportedly ventured into the man’s hotel room.
The man reportedly told police that “the woman said she needed help with money,” and he generously offered her $1,000. However, he reportedly couldn’t remember the code for the safe in his room and contacted hotel staff to help him open the safe. He is said to have given Richards $1,000 MEAWW.
The alleged victim told authorities he fell asleep and woke to find his Patek Philippe watch, valued at about $100,000, missing. The man suspected he was on drugs, and police collected the champagne bottle and glasses the couple had been drinking.
According to police, Richards approached an undercover officer at a nearby hotel the next day about prostitution. She reportedly had outstanding arrest warrants for prostitution and was taken into custody.
Richards admitted she met the man and that he gave her money, but denied stealing the opulent watch. She was booked for grand theft and posted $3,000 bail.
On Sunday – a day before Richards was due to appear in court for her preliminary hearing on the watch theft allegations – police responded to yet another expensive watch heist.
A man informed police that a woman had stolen his $12,000 Rolex watch from his Las Vegas hotel room.
KVUU TV reported: “The alleged victim told investigators he met Richards at the hotel and later went to his room to drink wine.
The outlet added, “Richards panicked, he said, and left the room — walking down the hallway in a different aisle than before, now taking shorter steps.”
Officers said they found a white powdery substance at the bottom of the man’s wineglass.
Security tracked Richards down, but she did not appear to have the stolen watch.
However, security forces used a metal detector stick and the device “remained alarming in her vaginal region.” There was a clock in the woman’s genitals. Richards agreed to remove the watch. Police said: “She explained that we would find it in jail anyway and she didn’t want to put herself in the trouble.”
Authorities placed the watch in a biohazard bag and it was confiscated. Police said they also found a pill case on Richards that contained a white powdery substance.
Richards is reportedly charged with theft in excess of $100,000, burglary in a home, grand larceny of $100,000 or more, administering drugs to assist in committing a crime, and grand larceny ranging from $5,000 to $25,000.
Richard’s court hearing on Monday has been called off. Her next court hearing is scheduled for January 10th. Richards was released after posting bail.
