Vegas Criminals Use Their Bodies for Crime
Staycee Johnson and Nikki Grandel are each facing a grand larceny charge after being arrested on January 2. According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, the pair of would-be criminals met their victim on the Caesars Palace casino floor. The arrest report stated that the three decided to take a trip to the victim’s room in his hotel room.
While the victim took a shower, the thieves tried to make off with $6,500 in cash and a Rolex that he left inside a duffle bag. He quickly uncovered the crime and called for assistance. The report stated that police conducted a body search on Johnson and discovered the money “bulging” in her pants.
Johnson initially claimed that she had put the money in her vagina. However, it had since fallen out. Grandel said she didn’t take any items from the room. However, officers performed an X-ray of Grandel after she was booked into Clark County Detention Center. They found a Rolex watch in her vagina. Court records indicate that both women were released on bail and will appear in court on February 1.
