Would-Be Masseuse Stole $65,000 from Gambler in Florida Casino

Florida Casino Masseuse Robbery

Cassidy Reign Paris allegedly pretended to be a masseuse, then walked out of the man’s hotel room with $65k in valuables.

Beware random masseuse’s in casinos. A 52-year old gambler visiting the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida nearly lost $65,000 in cash when he fell for a scam involving a would-be masseuse.

The man claims he met Cassidy Reign Paris, a 30-year old resident of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on the gaming floor of the Hard Rock Hotel.

Cassidy Paris struck up a conversation with the gambler. She identified herself as a professional masseuse and offered her services to the man. He agreed, and soon led Paris back to his room in the resort’s hotel.

The unidentified gambler told Hollywood police that he undreassed and the two began to kiss. Sometime during this interlude, Cassidy Paris became complaining of chest pains. She went to the hotel’s bathroom, then some time later exited the hotel room altogether.

Allegedly Stole $65,000 in Valuables

When the man, who was identified only as a New Jersey resident, got up from his bed to check on his supposedly sick paramour, he realized over $65,000 in valuables were missing: $10,000 in cash, a $50,000 Patek Philippe watch, and $6,100 in poker chips.

The victim approached casino security, which tracked Cassidy Paris through the casino’s gaming floor. When she reached the door of the casino, surveillance showed her running towards the getaway vehicle in the parking garage.

Police Tracked Thieves to Local Motel

Fortunately for the man who lost his valuables, the thieves made several mistakes. First, they parked in the parking garage instead of further out, so surveillance cameras were able to record the license plate number of the getaway car.

Second, the thieves rented the car from a local car rental location and the car had an easily-trackable GPS system. Local police were able to track the car to a nearby motel, which was 4 miles away from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Once the police tracked Cassidy Paris to the motel, they were able to apprehend her and her accomplice. Presumably, the valuables will be returned to the gambler, though it might be used as evidence in an upcoming trial.

Casinos’ Surveillance Cameras

It is incredible that scam artists, casino cheats, and outright thieves forget that casinos have surveillance cameras everywhere. Casino security can track people on the gaming floor, of course, but also in hotel hallways and parking garages.

In any case, it is a bad idea to commit crimes. It is a worse idea to do it in a location full of cameras recording every movement. Whether a criminal tries to steal from a casino or its customers, they face a high likelihood of being caught.
