Four Arrested In $230,000 White Plains Wal-Mart Heist

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Police said they’ve made four arrests in a $230,000 Wal-Mart heist and believe some of the suspects may have held up other suburban stores.

Public Safety Commissioner David Chong said Friday the suspects, Christopher Fountain, 28, of North White Plains, his cousin Phillip Fountain, 20, of Mount Vernon; Autumn Jordan, 22, and Tyrone Cramer, 36, of The Bronx, face robbery and weapon charges in connection with the Nov. 29 robbery in downtown White Plains.

Chong said it’s believed the same crew hit an Old Navy store at the city’s Galleria mall on Sept. 7, taking $31,000.

It’s also being eyed in connection with a June 7 Victoria’s Secret robbery at the Palisades Center mall in neighboring Rockland County.

Police used surveillance tapes to help identify the suspects.

The robbery occurred around 3 a.m. on Nov. 29. Police said two of the suspect were dressed in white painters suits. The four robbers pushed their way into the store threatened the manager with a silver handgun.

Police said the manager was forced to open the safe and then bound with plastic ties.

The robbers left after emptying the safe of more than $100,000 in cash. Police said the manager was able to free himself and called police.

    People have lost all their love and morality towards one another. Evil/Satin has conquered the hearts and minds of people. We don’t think, we react. For a few minutes of weakness, all 4 individuals, will be doing hard time. Crime does not pay. We must change,the way we think and feel,about other people. We must learn,to respect one another, and allow SPIRITUALITY ,to enter our hearts and mind. We must learn,to respect, love,honor and treat, each other, with a certain level of decency. Lives lost forever!

      Life behind the WALL,is no joke. Its jungle warfare, at its best. Lives lost, which doesnt do humanity a thing. Trying to gain materialism,instead of Spiritualism. No Good! We have misplaced our values. I believe Evil exist ” Unfortunately “. Only, if people would put aside their greedy ways,their lives would be,so productive. Lets not laugh at them,LET’S PRAY FOR THEM! THANK YOU!
