HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – A second woman has been arrested for robbing two men of their Rolex watches in January, Hollywood police said.

Kelsey Hough, 23, was arrested Thursday on multiple counts of grand theft.

Hough's accused accomplice, Alexandria Nicholas, was arrested Feb. 18 in Michigan and extradited to Broward County.

Detectives said several tips into Crime Stoppers said the women were the people seen in surveillance video leaving one of the victim's homes on Jan. 7 and said both women worked at Tootsie's Cabaret in Miami.

According to an arrest report, the victims were hanging out at the Porterhouse Bar Jan. 7 when they were approached by two women who asked if they could sit with them, at which time the men invited the women to their table.

Police said the friends later invited the women back to one of their homes in the 800 block of Spinnaker Drive in Hollywood, where the homeowner poured alcohol into three shot glasses and then went to the garage to get a bottle of champagne.

The man told detectives that Hough handed him one of the shot glasses when he came back inside. He said he drank it and possibly followed it with a glass of champagne.

The other man said Hough also offered him a shot multiple times, but he kept refusing because he didn't want to mix alcoholic drinks. He said he eventually took the shot.

Both men told detectives that they began to feel sleepy and only recall waking up the next morning to find both of their Rolex watches missing.

Police said the homeowner checked his safe and discovered that an additional five watches were stolen and his U.S. and Israeli passports.

According to the report, the watches stolen from the safe consisted of two Rolex watches, one Cartier Santos, a Seiko watch and a Hublot watch. The total value of the stolen watches is about $60,000.

The women were captured on surveillance video running out of the Harbor Islands community through the main gate and getting into an Uber car, the report said.

Authorities said they confirmed the suspects' identities through social media searches and by subpoenaing information from Uber.
