From the Daily News:
A former teen underwear model who made headlines bedding a second-grade Queens teacher was busted Thursday for being part of a gang of bandits.
Joshua Walter - once a mop-haired, globe-trotting fashion plate - was arrested on charges he and his alleged gun-toting pals held up a string of markets, bodegas and gas stations in Queens and Brooklyn.
"Everybody knew this kid was a model, but I guess that money wasn't good enough," a police source said.
Walter, 20, of Queens and three of his alleged cohorts were nabbed at about 1:30 a.m. when cops spotted them in a maroon Chevy Astro van matching the description of the getaway car used in the spate of stickups.
When patrol officers pulled the van over at 30th Ave. and 31st St. in Astoria, the occupants spilled out and ran. They were all caught after a short chase and a .380-caliber automatic handgun was found in the van, cops said.
Also arrested were Lamont Adams, 33, and Willie Winston, 30, both of Queens; and James Young, 29, of Brooklyn.
They were charged with robbery and criminal possession of a firearm and were to be arraigned in Queens Criminal Court.
Since June 14, the suspects allegedly used a handgun to commit at least 15 early-morning robberies at mostly 24-hour stores and gas stations.
