Wealthy, middle-aged men in Florida are being warned to look out for a beautiful woman who allegedly seduced and then drugged her victim, walking away with nearly $100,000 worth of cash and valuables.
The woman, who according to her alleged victim called herself Crystal and appeared to be in her late 20s, was shown in a sketch released by the Broward County Sheriff's Office on Friday.
Authorities said she met a 45-year-old man in a bar, and after it closed, police said, they went to a nearby club for another drink before retiring to the man's waterfront mansion.
Crystal then mixed her target a vodka cocktail that knocked him out, police said.
When the man awoke the following afternoon, Crystal was gone and so was nearly $100,000 worth of cash and valuables, including four pricey watches, police said.
"It's a crime that's so common," former FBI agent and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett said. "Many of them don't get reported because the men feel embarrassed."
Police are investigating whether Crystal has other victims. Anyone with information is asked to call 954-786-4200.
