Robbie Bolger goes down for six years
Colourful Irishman Robbie Bolger was a common face around motorcycle events throughout Australia via stunt shows he performed around the country from the turn of the century.
The Donut King backed stuntman then moved in to the car scene, performing drift shows and the like at various events. Eventually that proved lucrative enough for him to leave the motorcycle stunt shows behind him in favour of the four-wheel exploits.
Unfortunately Robbie then fell foul of the law. In a case that has taken six years to reach a conclusion, the 46-year-old was finally sentenced this week to six years and three months in jail. Bolger will be eligible for parole in July 2021.
Bolger has been charged for his part in the theft of engines from the Holden plant in South Australia throughout 2010 and 2011.
He is said to have received more than $330,000 for his role in the caper, however that money will likely be recoved by legal authorities.
Overall Bolger was convicted of 11 counts of property laundering, relating to the sale of the parts, and 54 counts of money laundering for depositing the proceeds in bank accounts.
