Men accused of Cleveland extortion investigated in Bedford Heights slaying

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Authorities said two brothers who allegedly threatened to burn down a Cleveland barbershop in an extortion attempt are also being investigated in a deadly shooting in Bedford Heights.

Jerry Baker Jr., 27, also known as Jerry Bogarty, and his brother Daryon Bogarty, 22, are both charged with extortion in the Cleveland case.

Police reports state the brothers allegedly threatened to burn down Fa’Ness Barber and Salon on East 116th Street near Buckeye Road unless the owner paid them $40,000 or signed over ownership of the business.

Baker is accused in court records of being a hitman for a recently-killed drug dealer. On Dec. 4, he reportedly called the Cleveland barbershop’s owner and said the owner owed money to his brother.

The owner reportedly denied the claims, and Baker gave him 24 hours to pay up or he’d shoot up the barbershop or burn it to the ground.

Baker reportedly called back an hour later and gave the owner one hour to pay up or sign over the store, reports say.

Nothing happened until Sunday, when Baker and Bogarty reportedly went to the barbershop and threatened an employee while showing a gun.

Baker reportedly walked around screaming threats at the employees while he had a gun sticking out of his pocket. The two men reportedly left the shop and drove by slowly in a silver Chrysler 200.

The men were later arrested along with Raeshawn Davis, a 27-year-old woman who was also in the car, police said. Davis is charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

Officers reportedly found suspected heroin, cocaine, $3,270, five cellphones, two loaded handguns, a loaded semi-automatic rifle and 38 bullets in the car.

Assistant Bedford Heights Police Chief Dave Leonardi said his detectives are investigating the possibility that the brothers are linked to the Dec. 1 slaying of Errone McCrimon, who was a friend of the barbershop owner.

Leonardi said McCrimon, 34, of Cleveland, was backing his truck into his driveway in the 5900 block of White Pine Drive when someone ran up and shot him several times. He died at MetroHealth.
