$150K in jewelry disappears, and so does woman

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Biloxi police are passing out surveillance pictures of a woman accused of stealing about more than $100,000 in jewelry and some cash from a Florida man she met at a Biloxi casino in late December.

Police Capt. Gerald Forbes says the unidentified man told officers he met the woman at the Beau Rivage on Dec. 20 and she accompanied him to his hotel room at the IP.

Forbes says when the man woke up later the woman was gone and so were his jewelry, including a Rolex watch, and about $200 in cash.

Forbes says surveillance footage from both casinos shows pictures of the woman with the man before he reported the theft.

Detectives describe the woman as in her mid-20s, Hispanic, 5-feet-4 and weighing about 120 pounds.
