Couple say Range Rover was stolen from Paris Hotel valet in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – A Californian couple were looking forward to their weekend in Las Vegas, but when they picked up their car from the valet, they were told their car had already been checked out by someone other.

On Friday, June 24, Jennifer Marquecho and her husband checked into the Hotel de Paris and handed over their car keys to the valet.

According to Marquecho, the valet told them, “I’ll take care of it as if it were mine.”

The next day, she returned to the valet to collect her car, only to find her Range Rover was no longer on the property.

“She said, according to this ticket, the car was checked last night. And what am I like? said Marquecho.

She was told her car was collected at 11.13pm on Friday, the same evening she checked into the Paris hotel.

“She said, ‘Anyone can go to the booth and get your ticket.’ I said your kiosk had a little flaw then. So you’re not asking for ID or anything?” Marquecho asked the help desk.

Metro police were called to investigate the situation. Marquecho was able to track his car using an app and found it near the Boulder Station Hotel and Casino in the eastern part of the valley. When she located the car, the license plate had already been replaced with a fake one. The car was not damaged, but his personal documents and house keys were missing.

“I feel violated,” Marquecho said.

8 News Now asked attorney Eric Blank what rights a person has once they hand over their keys to a valet.

“They are now taking possession of it, and they are now responsible for this vehicle, so your rights would be to get your vehicle back in the same condition that you gave it to the valet,” Blank said.

He also said it’s always a good idea to have a tracking system in your car.

According to Marquecho, regarding the people who took his car, the police told him that there would be no arrests since his car was not involved in a crime, however, a police report has been filed.

“I just wish something could be done, you know, so that this doesn’t happen to anyone else because I would hate for them to have this nightmare,” Marquecho said.

8 News Now contacted Caesars Entertainment for more information on their valet protocols, but did not hear back.
