Lawyer Upset Police Retrieved ‘Missing’ Rolex From Client’s Lady Parts

Christina Lafave

Being a professional masseuse slash exotic dancer in Las Vegas certainly has its perks. You can pull in tons of cash and lead a luxurious lifestyle on other people’s dime. Sure, sometimes you’ll have to do things you’re not going to be proud of, but it’s all part of life in the fast lane.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas — but when you stash a john’s client’s luxury watch in your vagina for safekeeping, your dirty deeds are bound to be discovered one way or another…

Earlier this winter, Christina Lafave received $300 from 66-year-old Kenneth Herold for a massage at the Wynn Las Vegas. When the pair went up to his suite, his $35,000 Rolex Presidential watch was visible on security surveillance footage. A few hours later, it had mysteriously disappeared.

Herold called security, accusing Lafave of stealing the watch after he took it off for his massage. Lafave countered by saying her client was just upset she wouldn’t give Old Father Time a blow job without a condom. Officers searched the suite for the watch, but came up completely empty-handed — that is, until Lafave decided that with a Rolex shoved up her vajayjay, time was no longer on her side.

Here are the details on the vaginal evidentiary extraction, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

[Lafave] was taken to University Medical Center, where she said she was in pain. A search warrant was signed, and an X-ray was taken of Lafave’s midsection.

“Prior to medical staff assisting Lafave with the removal of the watch she admitted to them that she had stolen a watch and concealed the item in her vagina,” a police report said.

Defense lawyer Chris Rasmussen was outraged when he found out the lengths and depths police went to retrieve the watch from his client and is hoping to suppress what he said was an illegal search-and-seizure.

Lafave, who is now free on $40,000 bail, is facing two felony counts of grand larceny and possession of stolen property. Rasmussen, her lawyer, is pissed off about the “lengths and depths” the police had to go through in order to finger the evidence in this case, calling it an “unreasonable search.” Lafave, on the other hand, is likely pissed off about the way her vagina was described — it may ward off future clients from throwing any hotdogs or comparably expensive watches down her presumably cavernous hallway.

Herold and Lafave’s rendezvous was a consensual encounter, Rasmussen said. “We believe he gave her the watch and later he tried to take it back when he wasn’t satisfied with her services. Like any person who works in these hotels, she believed she was going to be compensated for her massage.”

Rasmussen said the case amounts to a 66-year-old man taking advantage of a young local woman.

Protip: next time you receive a $35K Rolex from a client, stick it in your purse, not your vagina.
