    Authorities are searching for two women who were caught on camera drugging a tourist at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida, before they allegedly robbed him at a Dania Beach hotel.

    Broward Sheriff's Office officials on Wednesday released the surveillance footage of the Sept. 13 incident, which showed the victim playing poker in the casino when he was approached by the two women around 2 a.m.

    A short time later the women were seen on video in a slot machine area with the man. The video showed one of the women pouring a substance into the man's drink before handing it to him.

    Immediately after having the drink, the man said he felt drugged and had difficulty moving, and the women walked him outside to a waiting car. Detectives initially said the car's driver may have been a third suspect pretending to be a rideshare driver, but said they contacted him and don't believe he's involved in the crime.

    The women went with the man to the Sleeping Inn in Dania Beach, Florida, where the man lost consciousness in his hotel room, officials said. When he woke up in the morning his gold and silver Rolex worth $15,000 was gone, along with about $1,000.

    Officials described one suspect as about 35 to 45 years old, with blonde hair and a tattoo on her upper left chest. The second suspect was also about 35 to 45 years old and wearing a leopard jumpsuit. The car they took to the hotel was a dark-colored Honda Fit.

    Authorities are offering a reward of up to $3,000 for information leading to an arrest, and are asking anyone with info to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
