This woman had a heavy job after stealing the whole safe from the home of an elderly man who had fallen asleep after having sex with her.
Video footage shows the 33-year-old woman using a sheet to try and drag the huge save out of a block of flats after having sex with a 67-year-old.
Muhaye from Tajikistan had apparently met him on a dating app and the cash totalling 37,000 GBP which the man wanted to use to start a new business had been stored in the safe.
She was filmed dragging the 110-lb safe at the victim’s block of flats on Savushkina Street in the north-western Russian city of Saint Petersburg.
According to local media, the younger woman met the 67-year-old victim identified as Aleksey on a dating app before spending the night with him.
CCTV cameras then filmed her apparently dragging the OAP’s 50-kilogramme (110-lb) safe out of his flat and into the car park.
Reports said the victim had made the mistake of telling the woman about the 3 million RUB (36,650 GBP) in the safe that he planned to use for a startup business.
The police managed to catch the suspect while she was travelling to the capital Moscow, according to local media.
However, the woman had already managed to transfer half the money to her mother and son in the city of Tashkent, capital of Tajikistan, while also spending large sums on makeup and jewellery for herself, according to reports.
Local media said the police have charged Muhaye and she could face up to 10 years in prison.
Netizen ‘Gostya’ commented: “She looked very determined to get that safe out.”
A guest user of a Russian internet forum said: “Like this OAP really believed a young woman would choose him for his brains and looks.”
