Liliana Vanegas, 25, attempted to steal Alvin Malhi’s $28,000 Rolex in a Miami hotel.

Alvin Malhi, a 40-year-old Toronto native, was in Miami s Nikki Beach for his brother-in-law s bachelor party when a blond Colombian beauty cozied up to him while he was waiting for a cab back to his hotel. Malhi, who described himself to the Miami Herald1 as not especially attractive, had spotted the woman, 25-year-old Liliana Vanegas, at the bar earlier that night, where she had rebuffed attention from other men. Vanegas started flirting with Malhi, a transportation company executive, and asked whether he had any booze in his room at Miami s Loew s Hotel.

She said I don t like young boys. I like men. I thought, Wow, this must be my lucky day, Malhi told the Herald, who first reported the story.2

The supposedly lovestruck pair went back to Malhi s hotel room.

Malhi had been staying at Miami’s Loew’s Hotel while he was in town for his brother-in-law’s bachlor party.

Of course I wanted to take her to bed, Malhi said. But she wouldn t let me touch her. The duo drank whiskey inside his hotel room until they both passed out in the same bed.

When Malhi noticed Vanegas wake up, put her clothes on and leave the room in a hurry the next morning at 7 a.m., he checked his things and noticed his $28,000 Rolex was missing. Malhi threw on his clothes and chased the woman out into the street, where she was waiting for a cab she denied stealing the luxury watch. After two cabs rejected Vanegas when Malhi was screaming at her about the Rolex, she called an accomplice, 30-year-old Francisco Trujillo, who pulled up in a white Mercedes and sped off with the woman inside.

The tricked tourist called the police who were able to catch up with the white Mercedes after a chase and recover the stolen Rolex.

She fooled me pretty good, Malhi said.
