SPRINGFIELD, Oregon — Here is a true case of looking for love in all the wrong places.
An Oregon man was robbed and left nude in a local motel where he had gone to meet a woman he had met on Tinder for a tryst.
The man, who was not identified, told cops that he had met a woman named “Lacey” two months earlier using the dating app and had finally arranged to meet up in person at the Village Inn in Springfield on Tuesday.
According to the Register-Guard newspaper in Eugene, “Lacey” told the man to wait in the room with the door unlocked as she would arrive shortly.
While he waited, he decided to take a shower, and when he came out he found all his belongings — including his wallet and all his clothes — had disappeared. Buck naked and embarrassed, the man then called police to report the romantic interlude-turned- robbery.
Unfortunately, he didn’t know “Lacey’s” last name and when he went to show investigators her Tinder profile, it had been deleted.
He did have some photos of a thin, blond woman with blue eyes he had downloaded to his phone, which he showed to cops, and a phone number which investigators say they will use to try to track down whoever was responsible for the theft of the man’s belongings.
