Woman arrested in connection with Miramar kidnappings, robberies

Police say Crime Stoppers tips led to arrest of Charice Hubbert


MIAMI – A Miami woman believed to be responsible for a series of kidnappings and robberies in Miramar has been arrested.

Miramar police said Charice Hubbert was arrested Tuesday thanks to numerous Crime Stoppers tips.

One of the victims spoke to reporters during a news conference earlier this month. She said she was at a Wells Fargo branch in Miramar when she was approached by two women who asked her if an envelope belonged to her.

"She told me, 'You're going to get in this car or I'm going to shoot you. You're not supposed to make any scene,'" the victim said.

The women took $400 from the victim and then made her take out the remaining $60 from her account, police said.

The victim was then dropped off at a nearby Dollar General on Miramar Parkway.

Police said about a dozen similar cases had been reported in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, and the women and their accomplices had become violent.

Hubbert was being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. Her bond was set at $200,000.

Police said the investigation involving the second woman is ongoing.
