Taylor Sharde, 36, of Las Vegas, Nevada, United States was a suspect in a grand larceny Wynn Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada on August 20, 2022. She was not arrested that day.
On August 27, 2022, Sharde was inside the Wynn. That day, she met a man who was drinking on the casino floor of the luxury resort and casino.
At 11:17 p.m., Sharde allegedly told the man if they could back to his hotel room. While in the room, she took off all her put on a robe and ordered an “intimate kit” from the front desk, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
When the man woke up, Sharde was no longer in the room and his Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch, which is worth approximately $45,000, Cuban link chain and Gucci glasses were all missing. She was caught on camera exiting the room and taking a cab to leave the property.
At 1:22 a.m. on August 28, 2022, detectives working a covert operation at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in Las Vegas saw Sharde near the casino’s high limit tables. She had a Rolex Dadejust on her left wrist when she was taken into custody at the scene.
The watch, which Sharde claimed was hers, was impounded. She has posted bond and is set to appear in court on October 3, 2022.
Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, Rolex was founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf and Davis. It was renamed Rolex Watch Co. Ltd. in 1919 and Montres Rolex SA in 1920.
In 1945, the Swiss watch designer and manufacturer launched the Rolex Datejust. It was the first self-winding chronometer wristwatch to indicate the date in a window on the dial.
