MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – A woman wanted in connection with a number of high-end jewelry thefts across the state has been arrested in New York.
New York police said Saturday that Subhanna Beyah, 25, was arrested on fugitive from justice charges in Queens. Detectives from the Miami Beach Police Department asked the state police Thursday to help locate Beyah.
Beyah was arraigned early Sunday in Queens on the fugitive warrant.
Beyah was one of four women identified last week by the Broward Sheriff’s Office who they believe picked men up at upscale bars and restaurants, went home with them and then drug them to steal their money and jewelry.
One of her suspected victims was New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers reported $400,000 worth of missing jewelry from a hotel safe in Miami.
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 said he remembered 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.
Another of the suspects, 27-year old Keshia Clark, turned herself into the Miami-Dade Police Department last Thursday.
The remaining two women – Johnnina Miller, 25, and 23-year old Ryan Elkins – are still on the loose. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
