Adam Hicks, former Disney star, arrested and charged with armed street robberies

Former Disney star Adam Hicks has been arrested for allegedly carrying out a string of armed robberies in Burbank, Calif., according to police.

Hicks, 25, who starred in the Disney sitcom Zeke and Luther (2009-2012) and in the Hulu series Freakish, along with a woman identified as Danni Tamburo, 23, were arrested Wednesday for a series of four armed robberies, according to a statement from Burbank police.

They are both being held on $350,000 bail and are due in court on Friday. No one was injured in the robberies.

The first alleged robbery took place at 5:15 a.m. Wednesday when a 52-year-old man told police he was approached by a male who pointed a handgun and demanded his wallet.

“Fearing for his life, the victim ran away and was able to escape to safety,” Burbank police said.

As police officers were investigating the first robbery, three additional armed street robberies occurred within minutes of each other — all in the same Burbank area involving victims out for a walk.

The victims all provided similar descriptions of the suspect and his car, a dark-colored Kia.

After a search of the couple’s residence by the Burbank Police Department’s S.W.A.T. Team, Hicks and Tamburo were arrested. Police believe Tamburo was the Kia driver during the robberies.

A representative for Hicks did not respond to USA TODAY’s request for a comment on Thursday.
