Police are looking for a woman who they say stole over $52,000 worth of cash and designer watches from a man she had spent time with in Fort Lauderdale.

The theft happened back on June 10, after police said the suspect and the victim were out on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

Following the outing, the suspect and victim returned to the victim's home.

Surveillance footage shared by police showed the couple walking back around 1:30 a.m.

Detectives said that while inside the victim's home, the suspect stole two of the victim’s designer watches, his iPhone 12 Pro, his wallet and cash - totaling about $52,500 in losses.

The victim, Bobby Scali, told NBC 6 through a phone interview he didn't remember anything from that night and couldn't even remember going home.

Scali said he was drugged and he couldn't feel his legs. A toxicology report showed that there were several drugs in his body, including GHB — a date rape drug.

Surveillance footage showed the suspect leaving the victim's home by herself about two hours after arriving.

Officials described the suspect as a Black female with shoulder-length red hair. She was approximately 5-foot-4 and weighs around 120 pounds with a potential neck tattoo.

If anyone has any information about this incident, Fort Lauderdale Police urge the public to call detectives at 954-828-6070.
