Two Milwaukee women have been accused of stealing from at least 10 men, allegedly drugging them outside of nightclubs and taking their money. The police claim they were able to steal about $85,000. Sheesh! Deets inside…
Scamming SZN is at an all time high!
We’ve shared several stories about folks trying to cheat the system using PPP loans/unemployment funds to make big ticket purchases and flex on social media. Now, two women are being charged with plotting and scheming on several men, including a nightclub employee in River North, which is in Chicago, IL.
Since January, Tiana Trammell (left), 25, and Tjwana Rainey (right), 32, were running a “simple” scheme that involved meeting men at the bar/club, drugging them, and then taking their money, credit cards, jewelry and more.
According to Cook County prosecutors, the ladies would lead the men to another location and give them a bottle of liquor. Once they “blacked out,” the ladies allegedly took all of their belongings and dipped. The men would wake up to find their wallets, cellphones, and jewelry missing. Yikes!
Police said the ladies used the victims’ credit cards at Walmart and Target stores in Milwaukee.
CWB Chicago reports:
Some of the victims regained consciousness while lying on the side of roads. Others awakened inside their own homes, while one was found at the Lake Forest oasis off Interstate 94, prosecutors said.
Early Sunday, CPD surveillance cameras recorded footage of the women literally carrying an unconscious nightclub employee from a bar to Trammell’s car, where they proceeded to remove his valuables, Kiefer said. Chicago police and deputy marshals, who had the women under surveillance for days, arrested them at the scene.
After the women were taken into custody, police found “many small vials of alcohol opened and filled to the top,” according to Kiefer. The liquid inside those bottles is being tested. Cops also located a handgun in the glove compartment of Trammell’s car. Kiefer said she is a licensed concealed carry holder.
Defense attorney Aaron Rosenblatt said Rainey is a licensed phlebotomist and certified nursing assistant who works at Milwaukee hospital. She has no criminal background.
One of the ladies is a mother and reportedly has another child on the way.
Trammell’s public defender said she has one child and has another on the way.
“This alleged enterprise involves the…drugging of individuals,” Judge Charles Beach said after hearing the state’s charges. “Putting something into someone’s body and not knowing the result of it — affecting their body without them having a choice in it is an act of violence.”
“I am viewing this in some way as an act of violence,” he continued.
Beach then ordered Rainey held in lieu of $45,000 bail. She will need to post $4,500 to get out of jail before trial. Noting Trammell has an outstanding warrant in Tennessee and lives in Wisconsin, Beach said, “flight is a real possibility” in her situation. He set her bail at $55,000. Even if she can post the $5,500 deposit bond to get out, she cannot travel to Wisconsin, Beach ordered.
2020 isn’t letting up and scammer SZN is clearly in full throttle. Stay woke.
