Court documents accuse father of helping plan children’s kidnapping

Monroe County

GREECE, N.Y. (WROC) — Court documents revealed new details Monday about the alleged role of Dimitri Cash, Jr. in the kidnapping of his children from their foster home on January 18.

Shekeria and Dimitri Cash Jr. were taken from the home and found safe 48 hours later, on the floor of a car in Alabama.

According to a complaint filed by a Greece police detective, Cash helped plan the violent kidnapping. Two people broke into the foster home, duct-taped a victim and homeowner to two children, pushed them down the basement stairs, and hit them multiple times. The paperwork says one of the victims suffered significant bruises from the violence. The paperwork says the suspects stole a victim’s car and left the house with Shekeria and Dimitri Cash.

Cash was arrested over the weekend and another woman, Kimara Pluviose, 32, was arrested last week in Alabama in connection to this crime. However, the paperwork does not specify which two people actually broke into the house.

The statement ends by saying Dimitri Cash intentionally, knowingly, and unlawfully committed kidnapping, burglary, and robbery—all felonies. Cash is charged with the three different crimes under section 20, which means he may or may not have personally participated in all the actions listed, but police believe he had some involvement.

Cash is being held in the Monroe County Jail. Pluviose is being held in Alabama.

Last year, after “forcibly removing” his son from Autumn Lane Elementary School, Cash was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of criminal contempt, second-degree custodial interference, second-degree reckless endangerment, and second-degree harassment.
