A woman who allegedly stole $200,000 in watches from a man she met at a Miami nightclub has been captured on surveillance cameras leaving his luxury apartment building.
The woman, who reportedly introduced herself as Cynthia, was seen in the elevator waving her arms around while smoking a vape as she left the One Paraiso condos at about 5am on April 23.
The 35-year-old man reportedly brought her back to his 36th floor apartment for the night for ‘more drinks and to hang out’ after meeting at a nightclub police reported.
He is yet to be identified by police.
‘What we do know is the victim met this suspect at a nightclub,’ Miami Police Officer Kiera Delva told CBS Miami. ‘She was a complete stranger to him.’

Cynthia allegedly stole several watches, worth $200,000, from the unidentified 35-year-old she met at a Miami nightclub
Additional surveillance footage, which was not released by police, showed the pair entering the elevator about 1.30am.
Police said the man ‘fell asleep’ at some point during the night and woke up about 10.30am to find his watches – worth more than $200,000 – missing.
Authorities have noted that they do not think the man was drugged during the time of the heist.
The woman reportedly left the high-end residence in a rideshare car, which police believe may have been a Toyota Camry.
Law enforcement is unsure if Cynthia is the woman’s legal name and are ‘checking databases’ as part of their investigation.
The woman has been described as white with a medium build and long brown hair and was last seen wearing a brown tie-dye top, shorts and black sandals and had a brown, medium-sized purse.
Authorities are certain the ‘brazen’ thief will strike again, but had not previously been ‘on our radar’.
‘There’s no doubt she’ll strike again,’ Delva told CBS Miami.

Police reminded citizens to be wary about taking home ‘strangers’ after a night out.
‘When you get to know someone or meet them for the first time, they are still considered to be a stranger, so we do not recommend you invite them up to your place or residence,’ Delva told CBS Miami.
‘Normally places have a lounge area where people can sit around or talk and that is what is recommended.’
