Miami Beach's version of Robin Hood has come to an end, at least partially. Subhanna Beyah, the 25-year-old woman wanted by sheriff's detectives in Broward County for allegedly taking from the rich and oblivious and giving to herself and her friends, was arrested in Queens on Saturday by New York State Police.
The cops have been trying to track Beyah down since Shaun Rogers, defensive tackle for the New York Giants, was ripped off to the tune of $500,000 after a night spent partying with her at LIV and the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
Other men reported that Beyah and her co-conspirators had seduced them at various Ft. Lauderdale clubs, took them home, drugged them and relieved them of cash, credit cards and jewelry.
One of the women accused of targeting rich clubgoers with Beyah, 27-year-old Keshia Clark, turned herself into Miami-Dade police on Thursday. Johnnina Miller, 25, and Ryan Elkins, 23, are still on the loose.
Beyah, who also goes by Crystal, was arrested for pulling a pickpocketing scam in New York in 2009. It is unclear when she will be extradited to South Florida.
