Wanted: Gentleman Bank Robber : The True Story of Leslie Ibsen Rogge, One of the FBI's Most Elusive Criminals
Wanted Gentleman Bank Robber The True Story of Leslie Ibsen Rogge One of the FBI's Most Elusive Criminals Author:Dane Batty What do you think of when you hear about someone on the FBI's Most Wanted List? Hardened criminals, without morals or any sense of right and wrong, ready to solve a dispute with a gun, right? But what if things weren't that cut and dried? What if the nice guy you hired to hook up your cable was Number Seven on the FBI's list? — Les Ro... more »gge looks and acts just like your next-door neighbor. Yet in twenty years he may have robbed more banks than Jesse James and Bonnie and Clyde put together -- without firing a shot. Caught and put in jail twice, he escaped -- and went sailing around the Caribbean with his wife and dog!
In Wanted: Gentleman Bank Robber, The True Story of Leslie Ibsen Rogge, One of the FBI's Most Elusive Criminals, Les details his adventures from Alaska to Antigua, the Chesapeake to Cancun, in everything from a converted shrimp boat at an abandoned marina to an R.V. at a Mayan ruin -- and hundreds of vehicles and venues in between. But it all came to a halt when a fourteen-year-old in Guatemala forced him to turn himself in. Few felons have been as forthcoming about their successes, failures, robbery techniques, passion for sailing vessels ... and love for his wife.
