Subhannah Beyah, AKA "Crystal"
"Crystal" has many faces and many aliases, but her M.O., according to police, is thoroughly consistent: Cozying up to men at high-end clubs, heading home with them, and then drugging them and walking out with all their jewelry. The scam has netted the 25-year-old con artist and her crew of lovely thieving ladies more than $1 million, police say.

Crystal, whose real name is Subhannah Beyah, is already facing grand theft charges in Broward over her alleged crime spree. Now she's accused of fleecing a South Beach-based oil tycoon who turned her into police after reading a New Times feature about her last month.

The oil magnate is 61-year-old Thomas Morgan, the Miami Herald reports, and his unfortunate encounter with Crystal came last February at downtown's Zuma restaurant.

As usual, Beyah approached the older man at the bar, made friends and talked him into heading back to his condo in South Beach; en route, she mixed him a roophie-colada, which knocked him unconscious soon after they got to his place.

Police say she walked out with all the jewelry in his safe.

The crime had gone unsolved for more than a year until Morgan happened to read Miami New Times feature story last month on Beyah and her gang of accomplices.

Morgan recognized the woman named Crystal, who Broward police say led a gang of women that ripped off more than a dozen men, including NFL player Shaun Rogers, who told police he lost $400,000 in jewelry from his Fontainebleau hotel room. (Charges in that case were later dropped when Rogers refused to cooperate.)

Beyah's attorney says she'll be cleared of the latest charges, though.

"I've yet to see a speck of evidence that my client was involved in any way or ever met the supposed victim," Jonathan Meltz says in a statement. "We'll defend this case as aggressively as we did the Shaun Rodgers case. In the end, I'm confident the result will be the same. The State will drop the charges and Subhanna will be cleared of any wrongdoing. She looks forward to going home and seeing her children."

................i would like to know the extent the restaurants and their staff participate in this scam since many of these women run fake tabs with food and beverage charges they ask the mark to pay for - the restaurant gets paid in full for items it did not serve plus gets the reputation as a productive pick-up joint, the waiter gets an out-sized TIP on the bogus tab, and the woman shares in the rip-off both monetarily and being covered by the legitimacy of her as a real "patron" plus whatever she can con out of the mark


just like in the olde dayz when strip joints would push selling OVER-priced and watered-down "champagne" that the "girls" insisted on as part of the deal nowadays the strip joints are too seedy with abused minors so the high-end restaurants are today the new scam replacing strip joints.........i've heard of fraudulent TABs being in the $800 to $1,200 range that the woman asks the mark to cover


rogers refused to testify because his $400,ooo "loss" was an insurance scam attempt to squeeze money for jewelry that was never really stolen from him and maybe these other old geezers see themselves trying to scam the insurance carrier as well


the woman has a desperate drug habit to feed, the restaurant and staff are greedy slime, and the olde guy is either very lonely or very stupid = period

So she conned an oil tycoon. Wasn't out of much, or she wouldn't be in jail.

Hey, if I'm an oil tycoon, I think I can do better than this, even if she insists on coming over and initiating communications.
