Police Arrest Former Disney Star Adam Hicks For Armed Robbery
Burbank police arrested former Disney star Adam Hicks, 25, and his girlfriend, 23-year-old actress Danni Tamburro, for several armed street robberies on Jan. 24, according to a press release from the Burbank Police Department.
The police department said that early Wednesday morning, a man armed with a shotgun walked up to a 52-year-old man and demanded his wallet. The victim was able to escape safely, and the police were alerted.
“As police officers were investigating the first robbery, three additional armed street robberies occurred within minutes of each other,” the press release said. “All three took place in the Burbank hillside community and involved unsuspecting victims out for a walk. The victims all provided similar descriptions of the suspect and his vehicle.”
Police officers were able to find the car along with stolen property belonging to one of the victims, and they obtained a warrant to search a home where Hicks and Tamburo were located. The pair was detained and arrested, and they are in the Burbank City Jail on $350,000 bail.
Hicks is known for starring on several Disney Channel television shows and movies, having starred as Luther on Zeke and Luther and Wen on Lemonade Mouth, among others. Though he hasn’t been on Disney since playing King Boz on Pair of Kings, he has been in several other projects, such as Windsor and Hulu’s Freakish.
However, his alleged partner in crime is less known. Tamburro appeared in the 2017 film Color Me You and is in several movies that are currently in post-production.
The pair was set to appear in court Jan. 26.
