About this product
- DescriptionBubba Toothed Bandit is about John Stanley, a charming and quirky Texas bandit who gave up crime for 14 years then suddenly snapped and went on a six-state bank-robbing spree. In the 1980s, Stanley was a globe-trotting thief who cheated banks and dealt in stolen goods. After his capture in 1985, he took a secret oath to a dead philosopher, promising to leave materialism behind. He became a crime consultant and had a radio show on crime prevention. But in 2003, he went haywire, robbing 34 banks. The FBI nicknamed him the Bubba Toothed Bandit for his habit of wearing ugly fake teeth. Now in a Texas prison, he tells his story to journalist Tracey Eaton.
