Third arrest in waiting room theft

A third suspect has been arrested in connection with last week’s theft in Aria Health-Frankford’s waiting room.

Jannira Walker, 21, was arrested Saturday for theft, robbery and other charges. Her last known address was in North Philadelphia, but police said it’s likely Walker was homeless, much like her two accomplices.

Walker was arrested a week to the day after she and two others stole a watch from 63-year-old Joaquin Rivera, who died while waiting for treatment in Aria’s Frankford emergency room.
