The RV Bandit Who Stole $1 Million

Wed Mar 1, 2017

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida — Don’t steal.

But if you’re going to steal, don’t return to the same locations to commit your crimes. And if you’re going to return to the same locations, don’t keep souvenirs of your thefts. And if you’re going to keep souvenirs, for heaven’s sake don’t let yourself get caught on camera.

Because if you steal long enough, and you return to the same locations, and you keep souvenirs, and you get caught on camera … well, son, you’re pretty much screwed.

Yahoo Sports presents the story of the RV Bandit. It’s a tale that spans decades, involving dozens of crime scenes at countless racetracks, hundreds of victims, one Hollywood star and one thorough butt-kicking. It’s a tale of a million-dollar heist, one wallet at a time. And naturally, it’s centered in Florida.
