Strippers Spike Wealthy Men’s Drinks, Steal $135,000 from One Victim

When federal drug enforcement agents were told four strippers were allegedly spiking men’s drinks with drugs so they could rack up enormous charges on their credit cards they sent in an undercover agent to investigate.  It wasn’t long before the dancers tried the same tactic on the investigator, a law enforcement official told ABC News, and that cemented the case.

The DEA and NYPD arrested the women and a manger of a strip club in Queens, N.Y., on charges they gave unsuspecting wealthy men drugs, acquired their credit cards and ran up $200,000 in unauthorized charges.

A source familiar with the investigation told ABC News the victims, who were not identified, were a hedge fund manager, a bank manager and a real estate lawyer.  An attorney for New Jersey cardiologist Zyad Younan identified him as one of the victims.  Younan, who is from New Jersey, had been sued by Scores for not paying a $135,000 credit card bill.

“We were always confident that law enforcement’s efforts would expose that my client was preyed upon by this ring and not responsible for charges to his credit card,” Younan’s legal team of Michael Weinstein and Cole Schotz said in a statement today.

The accused women, Samantha Barbash, Karina Pascucci, Marsi Rosen and Roselyn Keo, face charges of grand larceny, assault and forgery.  The manager of Roadhouse Gentlemen’s Club, Carmine Vitolo, was also arrested as part of the alleged conspiracy.
