Metro Police arrested Stephone Laquinton Berry, 30, Monday after he allegedly confronted someone he believed stole money from him — 14 years ago.
Police charged Berry with harassment after a woman reported that he made threatening calls to her Saturday night, saying, “You know who it is, you stole my money” and claiming he had a price on her and her family.
Berry lived with the woman in 1996. According to an affidavit, she helped him open a bank account, which she claimed he subsequently overdrew. He later accused her and her family of stealing his money.
Saturday night, she said Berry left an unintelligible voicemail message on her cell phone, and when she called the number back, she recognized Berry’s voice and he identified himself to her.
She said Berry left more threatening voicemail messages and also sent four text messages, one of which read, “Still ain’t forgot when you stole my money.”
The victim claims she never even had access to Berry’s account and doesn’t know why he started calling and threatening her after such a long time.
Berry is set to appear in court Friday morning.
