LAUGHLIN (KTNV) — Las Vegas police are seeking possible further victims who may have had their items stolen by a hotel worker in Laughlin earlier this month.

Authorities say they responded to a burglary call at a Laughlin hotel located in the 1600 block of Casino Drive on Jan. 17.

An employee, identified as 20-year-old Trevor Savok, reportedly stole property and clothing items from hotel guests.

According to the arrest report for Savok, several “girls” who were staying at the Riverside hotel-casino found a note in one of their bags that said “text me if you want your panties back” and had a hand-drawn picture of a heart on the note.

They noticed that 6 pairs of underwear and a pair of AirPods were missing.

One of the girls contacted Savok, who initially denied stealing the underwear. He then told the girl that he would return the underwear if he received photos of her private parts.

They contacted hotel security and one of the hotel’s security officers reviewed surveillance tape and was able to identify Savok. The security officer also matched the phone number on the note to Savok’s employee records.

The security officer contacted Savok and read him is Miranda rights. Savok reportedly admitted stealing the AirPods but denied taking the underwear.

Hotel security contacted Las Vegas police. Savok initially tried to deny that he took the underwear but eventually admitted the theft, according to the report.
The 20-year-old was eventually taken into custody at the hotel without incident and booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

Detectives say they believe there may be additional victims.

Anyone with more information or may have indeed been a victim was urged to contact the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sexual Assault Section at 702-828-3421 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
