The Navigator arrested for Bankrobbery


„Flight of the Navigator“ ist einer dieser 80er-Spielberg-Ripoffs, die damals vor allem via Videothek Verbreitung fanden. Netflix for old Farts, quasi. Ich hab' den Film damals hoch und runter geguckt (zusammen mit Joe Dantes „Explorers“, weil wir damals den Hals nicht voll kriegen konnten von spielbergesquem Kram, weil wir hatten ja nix. Und das Poster!

Having said this: Kid from Flight of the Navigator has robbed a bank. This is like the annoying 80s-Retro-Wave finally arrived in a harsh reality.

JoeyDMugShotPolice have arrested a former child actor after a rare bank holdup last week on B.C.'s Sunshine Coast. Deleriyes Joe Cramer, 42, faces several charges including robbery, disguise with intent to commit an indictable offence, failing to stop for a peace officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

RCMP say a man in disguise — wearing a wig of shoulder-length hair, a bandana and sunglasses — entered a bank last Thursday afternoon in Sechelt. He demanded money and fled on foot. In spite of the disguise, police recognized the suspect from surveillance video because they had recent dealings with him, said Const. Harrison Mohr of the Sunshine Coast RCMP.
