Brookhaven, GA, April 2, 2016 – The Post Reports – Brookhaven Police Department is reporting that Autumn Kinsey Bailey, a 28-year-old female from Cleveland, GA, was arrested Friday in DeKalb County by the U.S. Marshal’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force and charged with Robbery in Brookhaven. Jezlias Maysonet, a 33-year-old male from Cleveland, GA, was also arrested and charged with Theft by Deception.
Police say that on March 16, Bailey met with a male victim who she met online. “The male victim had reached out to her by responding to a dating ad that she had posted on Craigslist ‘seeking a long-term relationship,’” Brookhaven Police Major Brandon Gurley said in a release. “The victim met with Bailey at a Brookhaven hotel where they decided to get a room together. Bailey told the victim that he would have to pay for the room in cash so they could avoid a paper trail.”
Detectives said the victim told Police he put $104.00 in cash on his seat for Bailey, but Maysonet ran up and snatched the money. Bailey and Maysonet then fled the scene. The victim chased Bailey and Maysonet, and was able to get their tag number.
Three days later, Crime Stoppers says Bailey committed a similar act in Duluth. Investigators said they received information indicating Bailey, who Crime Stoppers says is also known to have a heroin addiction, may be targeting married men.
Detectives received several tips after Bailey appeared on Crime Stoppers and in the local news. Those tips helped lead to additional information and the arrest of Bailey and Maysonet.
