A Las Vegas woman is facing charges of grand larceny and burglary after police say she left her "sugar daddy" at a U2 concert and stole $50,000 in cash and $7,000 worth of casino chips from his hotel safe.
According to police documents, the woman, identified as Hailey McNally, met the victim on the dating website Seeking Arrangement five weeks prior to the incident. The victim told police that he and McNally had been at the pool at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino on October 14, 2023, when she asked if she could put her purse in his safe. The victim gave her the code to the safe, and she stored her purse there with his personal belongings, including the cash and casino chips.
That night, McNally and the victim went to the U2 concert at Sphere. While at the concert, McNally said she needed to go to the restroom. After she had been gone for about 15 minutes, the victim texted her to ask if she was okay. She did not respond.
The victim then returned to his hotel room to find that the safe had been opened and the cash and casino chips were gone. He contacted hotel security, who reviewed surveillance footage and saw McNally leaving the room with multiple bags.
McNally was arrested on October 17, 2023. She told police that the victim had been "sexually aggressive and was touching her inappropriately" at the concert, which made her uncomfortable. She said that she left the concert, went back to the hotel room, and grabbed her belongings. She denied ever taking any cash from the safe, but police found $11,700 in cash and $5,200 in casino chips during a search of her apartment.
McNally is scheduled to appear in court on November 22, 2023. If convicted, she could face up to 10 years in prison.
