FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Investigators have finally put names and faces to “Crystal” and her cohorts in crime.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the women pick men up at upscale bars and restaurants. They then go home with the men, drug the men and steal their money and jewelry.
In addition to BSO, multiple agencies including the Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Hallandale Beach, Hollywood and Miami-Beach police departments are working jointly on investigations involving these four women, as well as others who might be involved.
Arrest warrants have been issued for Subhanna Beyah, 25; Johnnina Miller, 25; Keshia Clark, 27 and 23-year old Ryan Elkins.
Beyah identified herself as “Crystal” to at least one victim.
Robert Cournoyer, 45, told detectives he met “Crystal” at an upscale Fort Lauderdale restaurant. The two eventually went back to his home in Pompano Beach. Cournoyer said Crystal then made his a cocktail which took roughly a half-hour to make. The two drank and the next thing he remembers was waking up the following afternoon.
Crystal was gone along with $6,000 in cash and four high-end watches, two Rolexes, one Cartier and one Paniere valued at $80,000-$100,000. Cournoyer man added that Crystal deleted her contact information from his cell phone.
“They’re drugging their victims, so that’s why we want to get them off the streets in a hurry. We don’t know how long it will be before they kill somebody by accident by slipping the wrong drug into one of their drinks,” said Dani Moschella with the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
“We want everyone to be aware what’s going on so if someone seems suspicious, don’t go home with that person, don’t trust them with your drink.”
We showed the pictures of the women to several people out on Las Olas Thursday night. Arthur Rios said he rarely goes out but he had advice for men who might encounter these women.
“Beware,” he told CBS 4’s Carey Codd. “Beware of your company. Don’t pick up women at the bar.”
Heather Tole said the men should know better.
“The guys are asking for it,” she said. “They’re going home with random women. Don’t take them home if you wouldn’t take them home to your mothers.”
Anyone with information about these women is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
