Not Quite ‘Ocean’s 11’: Vegas Robbers Steal 30,000 Condoms and $10,000 in Sex Toys
When you hear about a Las Vegas business getting robbed, it’s hard not to immediately think of George Clooney and his band of sexy thieves stealing millions of dollars from a casino. The latest big-time heist in Vegas doesn’t have anything to do with casinos, but it’s still sexy-adjacent: robbers made off with 30,000 condoms and more than $10,000 in sex toys. That…is very ambitious.
On Friday night, two thieves broke into the warehouse for the sex toy company Lelo. They were spotted by warehouse security cameras walking away with two large shipping boxes filled with the company’s Lelo Hex condoms. The company says each box contained 15,120 individually wrapped condoms.
The next morning, security cameras captured another insane scene. This time, a white car slammed through the warehouse loading dock. A man jumped out of the passenger side, grabbed three large boxes, and threw them into the back of the car before getting back into the car and driving away. Inside those boxes? Thirty-three prostate massagers that retail for $219 each, and 48 Kegel exercising aids that are $49 for a set of two. Lelo has not released the complete list of stolen items.
But the best part? Besides likely being hella pissed over the stolen goods, Lelo actually had a sense of humor about the whole thing. In a blog post about the robberies (hilariously titled, “You Might Question our Security, but You canâ€™t Argue with Our Protection”), the company showed they’re more than just sex – they’re funny, too!
“Our Las Vegas warehouse…was viciously burglarized by what must surely be the horniest criminals in world history,” the post details. “Horniest and, oddly, most socially responsible. They stole 30000 of our beloved HEX condoms in one fell swoop. One hopes that they stole those condoms, got into a time machine, went back 18-25 years (by the looks of it), and presented them all to their own fathers.”
Sick burn, Lelo.
The company is asking for the public’s help in identifying and capturing the thieves. If they’re caught or the items are returned, Lelo will donate the full retail value of the stolen goods to a charity of the tipster’s choice.
Sexy and socially conscious…now I’m thinking about George Clooney again.
