Casino Patron Loses Poker Chips, Cash, And $50K Watch To "Masseuse" Bandit

Police Arrest Thief Using Getaway Car's GPS


Cassidy Reign Paris Appears In CourtA 52-year-old gambler from New Jersey was temporarily relieved of more than $65,000 in cash and valuables during a recent trip to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

The man met 30-year-old Cassidy Reign Paris, of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on the casino floor, who identified herself as a masseuse and offered her services. The man agreed, and led Paris to his hotel room.

According to the police report, the man undressed, the two began to kiss, and Paris started complaining of chest pains. She went to the bathroom, and a short while later, exited the room entirely.

The man got up from his bed to discover that he was missing $10,000 in cash, $6,100 in poker chips, and a Patek Philippe watch valued at about $50,000.

Casino surveilance caught Paris exiting the hotel room and running through the casino to a getaway car in the parking garage. Fortunately for the New Jersey casino patron, the car’s license plate was tracked to a rental car company, which equipped the car with GPS.

Police tracked the car to a motel four miles away, and Paris was arrested.
