Former Disney child star Joey Cramer has been arrested and charged with holding up a bank in Canada.
The 42-year-old actor, who had the lead role in 1986’s “Flight of the Navigator,” allegedly held up the Scotiabank on Apr. 28, according to The Coast Reporter.
Cramer allegedly donned a wig and demanded an undisclosed amount of cash from the bank in Sechelt, which is located 30 miles northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia.
“Despite the fact that a disguise was used during the robbery, the suspect was quickly identified by some of our officers, who had recently dealt with him on an unrelated matter,” Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Harrison Mohr told the Reporter. “We hope that the community feels safer now that the suspect has been apprehended.”
Cramer was arrested on Sunday and charged with robbery, disguise with the intent to commit an indictable offense, failing to stop for a peace officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Mohr said that it is unclear whether or not he used a weapon during the robbery.
This is not his first offense, however, as in 2011 he was wanted for allegedly “altering the name and/or the amount of cheques before cashing them at local financial institutions.” He was later convicted for using a forged document and given a six-month sentence and 18 months probation, the National Post reports.
Along with playing David Freeman in Randal Kleiser‘s sci-fi comedy, the Vancouver-born actor also appeared in TV movies and on two episodes of “Murder She Wrote” before leaving acting.
