You can't make this stuff up!

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.

Did anyone ever see the teacher he has a relationship with? Not to be mean, but holy crap! What did he see in her?

Doesn't she look she could be his mother? And not even, she just so homely.

Queens Crapper said...

Well, she is twice his age. Obviously, he has issues with his mommy. Lots of guys do, and lots of guys are into women older than them.

I get the older woman thing. But she's so icky for him. I mean, they just don't look right together. No?

Imagine that!

An underwear model gets caught with his pants down!

My favorite comment from the Daily News comment section:

Sounds like this piece of white trash likes hanging out with "da bruthas..." Let's see how much he likes hanging out with them in the shower....

I bet his picture is already hanging up in a few cells. Jail is bad for anyone, but its going to be really really bad for a male underwear model.

They should make his acclamation period to the big house a reality show.

This is news because a string of robberies happened over the past month in our borough and police were looking for the suspects. They caught them. That's called NEWS.

Astoria has really gone to hell in my life time. I remember when people like these would have not made it to the police alive.

Please print their home addresses. Please. "Queens" is too vague. I got some little shits living around the corner from me...
