Running out of luck
A man who was attending a conference in Las Vegas managed to bag himself $125,000 by playing blackjack, but his luck quickly ran out. Two prostitutes reportedly robbed the money, along with a $20,000 Rolex in Caesars Palace.
Marriah Vanderwaal and Coriana Singleton allegedly “trick rolled” the inebriated man out of the cash and watch at around 4am on the morning after his big win. They are now facing burglary and grand larceny charges.
has no memory of inviting the females to his hotel room
A “trick roll” is when someone robs an individual who is engaging in intercourse with a prostitute. The victim informed Las Vegas police that he has no memory of inviting the females to his hotel room and woke up without his winnings.
Caught in a trap
The robbery – which took place on September 21 – occurred after the man in question had played blackjack that night with some co-workers from about 8pm until 4am.
The sex workers came across the victim in the casino after he cashed out his winnings. He was said to be extremely drunk at the time and has no recollection of most of the evening.
Police looked at surveillance footage of the hotel floor to try to piece together a timeline of events. The females spent about 15 minutes in the victim’s room before they left and headed towards the valet at the nearby Bellagio Hotel and Casino. The sex workers entered a black Mercedes SUV there and proceeded to drive over to Caesars Palace where they met up with a white BMW.
Identifying the suspects
Vanderwaal – who was identified by her leopard print tattoo – was seen on video taking a photo holding a bunch of cash. They identified Singleton by looking at parking garage photos and matching the 29-year-old to previous arrest photos.
The pair will have a court appearance on October 30
The authorities were able to track their vehicles and then find them at residences in the greater area of Las Vegas, arresting the two individuals upon arrival. The pair will have a court appearance on October 30. It is unclear if the police got back the Rolex or cash during the course of their investigation.
