BAL HARBOUR, Fla. – A woman accused of robbing a man of his Rolex watch and Gucci shoes has turned herself into Bal Harbour police.

According to police, Alexandria Layce Martinez-Davis, 24, went to the victim's apartment building at about 2 a.m. on Sept. 13.

The victim told police that he noticed his Rolex watch, Gucci shoes and $2,000 in cash were missing after Martinez-Davis left.

Surveillance video from the building showed a woman walking into an elevator wearing his shoes.

Police said the victim was able to positively identify the woman in a photo line-up.

Records show Martinez-Davis was arrested in Miami Beach for a similar incident.

According to an arrest report from November, Martinez-Davis stole two Rolex watches from another man after returning to his home from the nightclub LIV.

The watches stolen in that case were estimated to be valued together at $38,000.

"She tries to identify them by their clothing -- the jewelry that he's wearing and then she'll engage them in conversation and then they'll end up back at his residence somehow," said Capt. Miguel De la Rosa of Bal Harbour Police. "And then at one point during the evening she goes ahead and rounds up the loot she's been eyeballing and then she'll go away undetected."

Martinez-Davis faces up to five years in prison if convicted. She is scheduled to appear in bond court Friday morning.
