LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Las Vegas woman was placed behind bars, charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property after police recovered a watch valued at $35,000 from her vagina, according to an arrest report.

Las Vegas Metro police said they were called to the Wynn Hotel and Casino on Jan. 15 to assist in a theft investigation.

The victim, Kenneth Herold, 66, told police he had earlier met Christine LaFave, 25, at a bar on the casino floor of the Wynn. According to LaFave's arrest report, she told Herold she performed "private massages" which would cost him $300.

Herold paid LaFave and the two left for his room.

Herold, in the arrest report, said that about 30 minutes into the massage, LaFave instructed him to remove his watch, described as a yellow Rolex Presidential watch, so she could massage his arm. He placed the watch next to the massage table. About five minutes later, Herold said he noticed the watch missing. LaFave denied having taken it.

Metro police said LaFave became combative with hotel security when they investigated, and she was placed in handcuffs. According to the report, LaFave told Metro police that Herold became upset when she refused to perform a sex act on him without a condom.

According to the report, LaFave later admitted she had the watch, which she had placed inside her vagina.

LaFave was taken to University Medical Center where medical staff performed an X-ray on her and removed the watch.
