Waking up after a night of partying at YOLO the club and realizing you've been conned out of $100,000 is a great way to feel serious shame and regret, unless you are actually Drake. (In which case, YOLO!)
Sheriff's detectives in Broward County are currently searching for a group of women accused of seducing men at various Ft. Lauderdale clubs including YOLO, drugging them and taking off with their valuables. One of these women, identified by police as Subhanna Beyah, is based out of Miami Beach and has been accused of taking $6,000 cash and four high-end watches from one recent victim. She also appears to be behind a terrible SoBe record label.
Arrest warrants have also been obtained for Johnnina Miller, Keshia Clark and Ryan Elkins, who are all also in their 20s. Besides targeting victims at YOLO, police say the women have been operating out of Vibe Ultra Lounge, Blue Martini, Dicey Riley's and Elbo Room.
Beyah, who is 25 and also goes by Crystal, was arrested in 2009 for pulling a pickpocketing scam in New York City, according to the New York Post. She and three cohorts were arrested for luring men into their vehicle with promises of driving to after-hours parties. While the victims were squished in the backseat, one of the women would stealthily snatch cash and credit cards. Beyah has also been arrested multiple times in Miami-Dade County for grand theft.
It's not clear when Beyah ended up in South Florida, but last year she was listed as the principal officer of the now-defunct Diversity Records Inc., a for-profit company based out of an oceanfront hotel suite on Collins Avenue.
A search for that company yielded a promotional Facebook page for a record label with 16 fans. The page features rap videos with the titles "Time Getting Hard" and "Dope Boy Swag."
Siren songs they are not; the music is poorly produced, typical crunk rap fare. Riptide shot a note to the person running Diversity's Facebook page asking about Subhanna, but we haven't heard back yet.
