Tia Carrere

Dancing With a Purse Thief

5/28/2012 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0528-tia_carrereTia Carrere's dance moves didn't do her any good last night when she encountered a purse thief in her Las Vegas dressing room following a performance of "Dancing With the Stars: Live in Las Vegas" last night ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, Carrere came face-to-face with a guy lurking in her private dressing room after her 10:00 PM show at the Tropicana last night. Rather than scream for help, Carrere tried to give the guy the benefit of the doubt and see what he was doing there ... but he promptly bolted right past her. 

Carrere then called out for help, but it was too late ... our sources say the guy made off with her purse, two iPhones, and a wad of cash. We're told another dancer, Anya Garris, had her wallet cleaned out as well.  

Carrere called police and filed a theft report. The case is now under investigation.

She should've used some of the martial arts moves that her movie/TV characters have used in the past. I'm very disappointed.

So sad to see all the horrible facial work these old hags think they have to do to look good. The hot ones do nothing.

No time for cutsies in crime. She could have been attacked. WHERE was security? Probably inside job. Of course the question begs, WHY would she carry wads of cash and WHY would her purse not be secured in a safe?? Glad she was not attacked.

Tropicana? Vegas? There are cameras EVERYWHERE. You have to be crazy to try and steal there. Look for the crazy guy in the security vid...
