A Las Vegas woman hired to give a man a $300 massage allegedly snatched his $35,000 Rolex and concealed it in her vagina.
Christina Lafave, 25, is accused of stealing a watch belonging to Kenneth Herold on January 15 while giving him a massage at his room in the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel.
The case came to light now because Lafave’s attorney, Chris Rasmussen, believes the watch was found via an illegal search-and-seizure and should not be admitted in court.
Herold, 66, told police he met the suspect at a hotel bar. A short time later, she volunteered that she did “private massages” for $300 a pop, according to the arrest report.
Herold paid her and they both went to his room for the massage. At one point, Lafave allegedly suggested Herold remove his watch so that she could massage his arms.
Although Herold tried to keep the Rolex in sight, he told detectives that he noticed it was missing about five to seven minutes later.
Herold then questioned Lafave, who denied taking the watch. The alleged victim then called hotel security, who quickly came to the room.
