Arrests made for robbery of 3 Albert Street vendors

Andrew Talbert

A fourteen year old minor is among a group of four persons who were remanded today for three armed robberies of food vendors at the Battlefield Park. The minor, eighteen year old Desiree Waight, twenty-one year old Theresa Elijio and twenty year old Andrew Talbert are accused of stealing six hundred and fifty dollars from Genoveva Noble, two hundred and fifty dollars from Danielle Rivas and two hundred dollars from Amelia Argueta. All three tacos vendors were targeted at around three-thirty on Saturday morning. Noble was the first target and she told police that two men and two women approached her and ordered food, but one of the men pulled a gun on her while the order was being prepared. After taking her cash, they moved on to Argueta and then Rivas. A seventeen year old who was in the area at the time was also reportedly robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash.

Desiree Waight

When Talbert was captured at the corner of Dean and Plues Streets, he had a nine millimeter glock pistol loaded with one live round of ammunition, which he unsuccessfully attempted to discard. The minor and two women were in the same yard, but claimed in court that they don’t know Talbert and they weren’t involved in the robberies. Bail was denied to all four and the minor was sent to the Youth Hostel while Talbert, Waight and Elijio have been remanded to prison until February nineteenth. Talbert was also charged on Monday for Keeping Firearm and Ammunition without a gun License to which he also pleaded not guilty.

    I’m glad police are still solving the smaller crimes, too. Murders make the headlines, but little robberies like these are more common and affect more of us in our daily lives.

    Andrew Talbert again? This guy has been in the news for 4 armed ribberies including an attempted murder of a vegetable vendor at the queen square market. Why is he still running around on the streets?!?!!? Dont our judges decipher criminals from good citizens? Why is our justice systen so lenient? This country has gone to hell. I recommend you all get out before the gsu busts your door down and they plant 1 bullet in your house.
