Fourth man alleges he was drugged and had $40K Rolex and $400 cash stolen

A fourth man was allegedly drugged by a woman he met in a Las Vegas casino who then stole a $40,000 Rolex and $400 cash. 

Ashley Trahan, 33, of Las Vegas, has now been arrested in connection with the latest alleged robbery.

Her arrest comes just weeks after Windy Rose Jones, 23, was taken into custody accused of drugging three men and robbing them in Sin City casinos between February and April. Police have not suggested any link between the two women. 

In a scam reminiscent of J-Lo‘s hit movie Hustlers, about a group of strippers that drug and steal from men, the latest victim claims he had been enjoying drinks with Trahan, but woke up to find his valuables had gone.

According to a police report, the man said he had been gambling at the Lift bar at the Aria Resort and Casino at 3am on March 29 when he met a woman who said her name was ‘Kayla’. 

He said after they had chatted bout the video gambling machine he was playing and went to the bathroom, leaving his drink behind. 

‘When (he) returned, he stated he felt very weird and had a hard time walking and believed he had been drugged,’ the police report, obtained by the Las Vegas Review Journal, said.

Police say Trahan escorted the incapacitated man, who has not been identified, back to his room at the Aria.

When he woke the next morning, he realized the $40,000 Rolex he’d been wearing was missing, as was  $400 cash and a $184 casino ticket.

He told police there’d been ‘no talk of prostitution or trading sexual favors for money’ with the woman.

Trahan was arrested by Las Vegas police last week after she was spotted speeding in a school zone in the Southern Highlands community. 

She had outstanding warrants for attempted murder and attempted robbery relating to a separate case.

Trahan initially denied being ‘Kayla’, but after police showed her surveillance footage she accepted she had been at the Aria on March 29,

She said he was a lawyer, and had given her a business card.

She went on to claim that the man was on drugs on the night, and that she hadn’t administered them.

She also claimed to have had a room at the Aria, where rooms cost anywhere from $150 to $600, but police confirmed that was not the case.

Trahan was booked on suspicion of committing grand larceny of valuables worth more than $25,000 at the Clark County Detention Center last week.

She’s been released from custody and has not yet been charged. 

Two of Jones' alleged victims were drugged and robbed after spending the night with her at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas

In a striking similar case, Jones, 23, who has advertised on prostitution websites, is accused of stealing watches valued at a total of $127,000 from three victims. 

The first victim, targeted on February 21, woke up to find his Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch worth $37,000 gone. He told Las Vegas Metropolitan Police that $1,500 in cash was also missing.

Around a month later, on March 24, a second man brought Jones back to his room, it is alleged. He woke up the next morning to find his $45,000 Rolex Daytona watch had disappeared, as well as his iPhone 12.

Following investigations, police were able to identify Jones after finding multiple photos of her on different prostitution related ads online.

‘The photos showed Jones with a large lion tattoo on her upper leg,’ police said.

Jones was arrested on April 4 and booked at Clark County Detention Center on two counts of felony grand larceny.

After her arrest, she was linked to a third case of drugging and stealing an expensive watch – this time a $45,000 Rolex.  

She did not speak to investigators but police confirmed the existence of the lion tattoo on her leg.

No criminal complaints have been filed in either case and Jones is currently out of custody.

Jones is scheduled to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court in both cases in May for a status hearing on the filing of criminal complaints.

Police say they believe the robberies involved prostitution, although it is unclear if Jones had arranged sex in exchange for money with the two men she is now accused of stealing from. 

Two of the men she is said to have targeted said she had a distinctive lion tattoo on her thigh.

Detectives arrested her after spotting a similar inking on the sex sites, according to the The Las Vegas Review Journal.

Jones’ first alleged victim said they went his hotel room to drink margaritas and that his memory of what happened next is blank. He claims while the two were in the room waiting for room service the topic of sex never came up, the police report says.

The man said he fell asleep shortly after finishing his margarita and woke up the next morning to find $1,500 in cash missing from his wallet and his Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch worth $37,000 was also gone.

The police report said the man was a ‘victim of a grand larceny and possibly being drugged’.

The man described the woman he only knew as ‘Rosa’ as having distinctive tattoos, including a lion tattooed on her thigh.

Jones’ alleged second victim made similar claims, and also feared he may have been drugged.
