Police: Men targeted by female robbery crew at Atlanta hotels

Georgia Police arrested two women, who were part of a female robbery crew targeting men wearing expensive watches at local Atlanta hotel bars.

WSB-TV reports Kodi Lee Jones and Sarah Bennett were arrested Friday.

Investigators say the two women were robbing men at gunpoint or stealing watches and other items when victims fell asleep in hotel rooms.

Authorities are now probing at least 15 robbery cases, but have yet to indicate if they’re all connected.

In one case, police say a man left a hotel with Jones only to be robbed by four armed assailants upon entering a store.

In a second case, Bennett is alleged to have robbed a man at gunpoint of his $25,000 Rolex and wallet.

Both women remain in custody without bail in Fulton County.
