After a guy got his iPad Mini and MacBook Pro laptop stolen by a massage girl he called to his hotel room, Burbank police are warning folks to use only reputable masseuses.

Um. Yeah. We have out doubts that the “victim” was searching for a real legit muscle-stroker at 4 o'clock in the morning. (Or maybe he was).

Here's what you really need to know:

Never turn your back on the outcall massage “therapist” you found online!

That's what cops say the victim did yesterday, resulting in a reported $2,500 loss of fine Apple gear. According to a Burbank police statement:

The victim called a masseuse service and the suspect responded to his hotel room. While the victim was in the restroom, the suspect left the room with this property.

That easy.

The guy reported the grand theft to cops at 4:10 a.m., according to the Burbank P.D.

It happened at the Courtyard Marriott at 2100 Empire Avenue, authorities said. The victim was described as a 24-year-old from Lake City, Florida.

The woman?

Female Black, unknown age, long dark hair, about 5'10″ tall and wearing a red hooded sweatshirt …

She's on-the-loose, cops say, ready to take the computer equipment of unsuspecting men with tight muscles throughout the L.A. area. Burbank P.D:

The Burbank Police Department would like to remind the public that when you are dealing with online services, you should be very careful. We would encouraged everyone to attempt to verify the business' legitimacy in order to avoid being a victim of a crime.
