Woman snuck out of U2 concert to steal $50K from ‘sugar daddy’s’ Vegas hotel safe
A Las Vegas woman was slapped with grand larceny charges after she allegedly ditched her “sugar daddy” at a U2 concert and stole more than $50,000 from his hotel safe, according to cops.
Hailey McNally, 27, was arrested last week after she allegedly took off with the cash and casino chips belonging to a man in his 50s who she met on “Seeking Arrangements,” a dating site that connects sugar babies and daddies.
The victim called police to Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino on Oct. 15 to report the missing money and told cops he believed McNally stole it and fled, KLAS reported.
He said he met the woman on the dating site five weeks earlier and he became her “sugar daddy.” He arranged for McNally to spend the weekend with him at Caesars Palace in exchange for $2,500, he told police. Sex was discussed, but never happened, he added, according to cops.
McNally met the victim that Friday, Oct. 13 and he handed her the cash. They spent time together at the pool, went to dinner and the next morning, she joined the victim and his friends again.
After winning money gambling, she asked the victim if she could put her purse inside the safe in his hotel room. He said yes and gave her the code to the safe, where his personal belongings including $50,000 in cash and $7,000 worth of casino chips were stashed, according to police.
Later that night, the pair and the victim’s friends went to the U2 concert at Sphere.
McNally excused herself to use the bathroom during the concert.
After McNally was gone for more than 15 minutes, her “sugar daddy” texted her to ask if she was OK. She didn’t respond.
When she still wasn’t back after nearly an hour, the victim called Caesars Palace and asked that his hotel room be placed on lockdown — but it was apparently too late, KLAS reported.
He returned and discovered his safe was empty, cops said.
McNally was captured on hotel surveillance footage entering the floor of the victim’s hotel room at around 9:30 p.m., half an hour after she claimed she was leaving the concert to go to the restroom.
Minutes later, she was seen again in footage entering the elevator with multiple bags, according to the police report.
The reported sugar baby was taken into custody on Oct. 17 and told investigators that the victim acted “sexually aggressive and was touching her inappropriately” during the concert so she decided to leave, the report stated.
She told cops she only grabbed her belongings and the casino chips from the safe when she decided to leave after feeling uncomfortable.
Police recovered $11,700 in cash and $5,200 in casino chips during a search of her apartment.
McNally was charged with grand larceny of more than $25,000 and residential burglary — both felonies — and was released on bail.
She is due back in court on Nov. 22.
