Child Star Arrested for Robbery

Former Disney child star Joey Cramer has been arrested and charged with holding up a bank in British Columbia, Canada.

The 42-year-old actor who had the lead role in 1986's "Flight of the Navigator" allegedly held up the Scotiabank on April 28, according to The Coast Reporter.

Cramer allegedly donned a wig and demanded an undisclosed amount of cash from the Sechelt bank, which is located 30 miles northwest of Vancouver.

"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," RCMP Constable Harrison Mohr told 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. He was also charged with 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.

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 two episodes of "Murder She Wrote" before leaving acting.
