The young law student who began robbing TABs - Part 1

This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 

We're going back to the "stick ups" this week with Arthur Bolkas.

He's a Criminologist, actor, public speaker and proud father of two.

However, before he was all of these things, he was a very promising young law student, and a flamboyant armed robber.

Part two of this two part series will be released later on this week.
