HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) -- Police in Hollywood say they're looking for two women suspected of drugging two men and stealing their Rolex watches after they met at a bar.

Local media outlets report that the men told detectives they met the women the night of Jan. 7 at the Porterhouse Bar & Grill in Sunny Isles Beach and invited them back to a man's Hollywood home.

Officer Meredith Elrich says the men believe they were drugged after the women made them drinks.

When the men awoke the next morning, Elrich says they realized their watches were missing, as well as five other watches that had been inside a safe at the home. The watches are worth approximately $70,000.

Police say the women were captured on community surveillance cameras as they left.
