The Flying Bandit


When Janice Whiteman met her husband Robert at the airport she was stunned when he was tackled in front of her by plainclothes police and arrested for armed robbery.

Since the day they met, Robert had been leading a double life; husband and father at home, spectacularly successful armed robber on the road.  In a spree lasting thirty-three months, in cities, large and small from Vancouver to Halifax, he committed fifty-nine robberies, sometimes two in one day, for a combined take of over two million dollars.

This is the extraordinary true story of the most daring criminal in the nation’s history:  Canada’s Flying Bandit.
