A Las Vegas man who won more than $100,000 while gambling in a boxing match at the MGM Grand became the victim of a “scam roll” when he met a woman named Savannah Cisneros.
County prosecutors charged Clark Cisneros, who was previously arrested on multiple counts of prostitution and trespassing in the Strip, with stealing the man’s duffel bag full of cash while he was showering in their hotel room at the Tropicana Las Vegas.
According to the arrest report, another man who was a friend of the victim while watching the boxing match introduced him to Cisneros. Cisneros and the victim later go to the Tropicana where they get a hotel room together.
Footage showed Cisneros fleeing through the back parking lot and climbing a wall
The victim, who tried to hide the bag in the room from Cisneros, told police he heard his “duffel bag move” while he was showering, and then saw Cisneros run out of the room with him. Surveillance footage showed Cisneros fleeing through the back parking lot and climbing a wall leading to a parking lot at a nearby apartment complex.
Historians believe that the theft, referred to as the trick roll, has its origins in Las Vegas, where thieves like Cisneros manipulate and trick successful gamblers into stealing their rolls — or in this case, a duffel bag — of money with the false promise of sex. .
