According to a police report, after the two met at a bar they drove in Reed’s car to an ATM where $300 dollars of Beech’s money was withdrawn.
Reed told police they attempted to purchase narcotics.
Unsuccessful in the drug buy, they went to the hotel and after Beech got out of the car, Reed tried to pull away with Beech’s things.
Reed told police “she had his money and credit cards and decided to leave.”
But Beech tried to get his property “and had both hands on the hood of the vehicle” when police say Reed sped off.
Reed has a history of arrests, back to 2007 for prostitution, fraud, burglary and grand theft.MORE NEWS: Miami Weather: Brief Downpours Possible Sunday Before Drier Air Works Its Way In
