Woman Accused Of Drugging, Robbing Men Mistakenly Released From Georgia Jail

A 27-year-old girl who admitted to HuffPost that she’d been concerned in a cross-country crime spree has been recaptured almost a month after Georgia authorities mistakenly launched her.

The DeKalb County Jail allowed Dominique Berry to depart on June 11, roughly two months after HuffPost reported on her claims that she and Randy “Ru Ru” Schenck, 36, drugged and robbed males in at the least six states over a two-year interval, leading to at the least one loss of life.

Since final yr, Berry had been serving time on the county jail for pawning stolen gadgets belonging to a person she met on a relationship web site. Upon completion of that sentence, she was presupposed to be held on a felony warrant for extradition to Sacramento, California, the place a person alleges he virtually died after being slipped a cocktail of medicine by Berry.

HuffPost discovered of Berry’s launch earlier this month and reached out to the Sacramento Police Department for remark. Sgt. Vance Chandler stated that the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office had been notified of the excellent warrant in May.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s workplace confirmed the error in a Thursday e mail to HuffPost, blaming it on an “administrative error.”

“Ms. Berry should have been held for full extradition by the Sacramento California Police Department,” Cynthia Williams stated. “The jail became aware of the erroneous release on July 8.”

HuffPost had requested the sheriff’s workplace and California authorities in regards to the error on July 6.

Berry, who Georgia courtroom paperwork state was to be monitored by a probation officer, was not arrested by the sheriff’s fugitive job power till Tuesday of this week. According to Williams, Berry was taken into custody at a residence close to Decatur.

The Sacramento expenses stem from an incident that occurred a couple of days earlier than Christmas 2016. A person positioned an advert on Craigslist “looking for someone to join me and my girlfriend … and become friends.”

The man claims that Berry confirmed up at his home. He instructed police that the very last thing he remembers is taking two photographs of liquor that Berry allegedly poured for him. His girlfriend, who requested HuffPost to not publish her identify, discovered him unconscious when she acquired house from work, and he was rushed to the hospital, the place it was decided that he’d been drugged.

The man’s home had been ransacked. Credit playing cards, cellphones and $300 have been stolen, prompting Sacramento County authorities to file felony complaints towards Berry and Schenck.

The couple can be being investigated in reference to the February 2017 loss of life of 40-year-old Shawn Arthur in Louisiana. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office reopened the investigation into Arthur’s loss of life after HuffPost began elevating questions. 

“She has left a trail of victims across the United States … and it’s time she answers for it,” Arthur household lawyer Michael Kennedy instructed HuffPost. “We know investigations are open and with each charge she faces, our case gets stronger.”

Schenck, who can be jailed in Georgia in reference to the alleged relationship scams, couldn’t be contacted and Georgia authorities have declined to permit him to fulfill with HuffPost. His lawyer, Kenneth Muhammad, didn’t return a name for remark.

Berry is again within the DeKalb County Jail for now. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer or whether or not she’ll struggle her extradition.
