    Authorities are looking for a woman they believe drugged a Pompano Beach man before stealing cash and tens of thousands of dollars worth of expensive watches from him.

    The incident happened in early March when the 45-year-old man met the attractive woman, who said her name was Crystal, at an upscale restaurant Yolo on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Friday.

    [MI] Daycare Thief Used Toy Hummer, Trash Can To Try and Hide Himself, Video Shows
    A daycare thief was caught on camera doing things before his break-in that may have some wondering what he was thinking – like using a little toy Hummer to try and hide his face. The owner of Miami's Kinder Kollege Academy, who was too afraid to identify herself, spoke with NBC 6's Christina Hernandez about the break-in.

    The two, who had met previously, went next door to the nightspot Vibe before moving to the victim's Pompano Beach house, where Crystal made him a vodka drink that took a half hour to make, the BSO said. He took a sip while she drank directly from the bottle.

    The man didn't wake up until the next afternoon. Crystal was gone and so were $6,000 in cash and four high-end watches – two Rolexes, one Cartier and one Paniere – worth between $80,000-$100,000, the BSO said.

    Crystal also deleted her contact information from his cell phone.

    Marci Greenberg, who was out on Las Olas Boulevard Friday night, drew a lesson from the case.

    “Just be really careful, in anybody you meet and anything you do,” she said.

    Authorities have released a sketch of Crystal and describe her as possibly Hispanic and in her late 20s. Detectives are investigating similar cases that may involve her.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
