ORLANDO, Fla. – A worker of a high-end hotel is facing burglary charges after he made a copy of a guest's room key and stole hundreds of dollars in cash from the room, deputies said.

It happened in mid-April at the Caribe Royale in Orlando.

Carlos Correa-Rosado used a duplicate copy of a hotel room key and stole cash from two women who had left their purses on their hotel beds, according to the arrest report.

In the report, hotel security said they caught Rosado on video using the hotel's key-card maker and said that he "admitted to making a hotel guest room key and taking money from hotel guest room."

Local 6 has learned Rosado has stolen before.

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Rosado has been on probation since December of 2014. Last year, records showed he committed the same crime -- "grand theft by hotel employee."

And yet, he still worked at the Caribe Royale.

"I'm extremely worried because now on those key cards, your information is on those key cards," said one guest who asked to only be identified by Anthony. "That's an administration issue. There should be some type of database where they're put into. That's horrible."

When reached by phone, a Caribe Royal manager refused to comment on the case or answer whether the hotel performs background checks on employees.

Wednesday morning as he faced a judge in court, Rosado said he just started a new job at another hotel just five days before.
