Ashley Done, Florida Escort, Accused of Drugging Men and Stealing From Them
A blonde seductress that used the Blue Martini Bar locations in Fort Lauderdale and Miami to lure men in and then rob them has turned herself in to the Broward Sheriff's Office and now they're asking for any other victims to come forward.
The woman, Ashley Done, 26, has victimized men from Broward to Miami all the way up to New York, and had help from another female accomplice, identified as Penny Barbosa, throughout her seductive burglary spree.
According to a BSO report, Done, who is an escort, met up with a potential victim named Charles Zioch at the Blue Martini, an upscale bar in Fort Lauderdale, on the night of August 21.
There the pair had several drinks, and decided to turn their two-person party into a threesome and drove to Solid Gold in Oakland Park to meet up with Barbosa.
From there, the three drove to Zioch's apartment nearby. While in the apartment, Zioch took off his Rolex watch and placed it on a bedroom dresser before going into the bathroom. When he returned to continue to party, he quickly realized the good times were over, as the Rolex and the women had all vanished.
Done and Barbosa took another victim the night before where they met a man at the Blue Martini in Miami. According to BSO, unlike with Zioch, the women actually spiked their Miami victim's drink with an undetermined substance before stealing his Rolex, along with other valuables.
Police say this wasn't the first time Done and Barbosa had drugged a man to rob him. Back on May 25, Done met a Thomas Johnson at the Fort Lauderdale Blue Martini before taking him back to his apartment.
Done then spiked Johnson's non-alcoholic drink with an as-of-yet unknown drug, causing him to fall asleep. When Johnson awoke, he found Done gone and his lap top, bank cards and a couple of luxury watches missing.
Done is also a suspect in a similar crime committed in New York City.
According to the Daily News, Done met up with a 45-year-old tourist from Thailand who took her out on the town in NYC. He eventually took Done back to his hotel room at that Hyatt Times Square where he was allegedly drugged in a similar manner as the other victims.
The man told police he didn't remember anything, but woke up to find a Versace necklace, Rolex and $2,000 in cash missing.
Police were able to identify Done via surveillance footage from the hotel's security cameras.
The BSO repot says that Barbosa was arrested by the Sunny Isles Police Department in connection with their investigation, and Done turned herself in just days later.
BSO detectives are asking any additional victims to come forward. Anyone with information may contact BSO Det. David Agusti at 954-202-3110 or Det. Ronald Cusumano at 954-786-4242. Individuals may also report information anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
