CHICAGO — Two Milwaukee women allegedly stole $85,000 from at least 10 men after drugging them outside nightclubs, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Cook County prosecutors in Chicago say Tiana Trammell and Tjwana Rainey ran a scheme since last January that entailed leading unsuspecting men they met at bars to more secluded locations.

There, the women would allegedly hand the men bottles of liquor in order to intoxicate them. Those who blacked out from drinking in excess, woke up to find that they were missing their cell phones, wallets, credit cards and jewelry, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors say the suspects used some of the stolen credit cards at ATMs and department stores in the Milwaukee area, the Sun-Times reports. Prosecutors estimate the duo stole over $85,000.

Trammell and Rainey were arrested Sunday in River North in Chicago after they allegedly drugged a 27-year-old man.

Trammell, 25, and Rainey, 32, face felony charges of continuing a financial criminal enterprise and possession of a controlled substance, according to the Sun-Times.
