The game's up, Down Under

Anti-gambling groups have long warned against the ills of playing slot machines, with some detractors even claiming casinos games are tantamount to ‘daylight robbery’. Mind you, if you own a pub or pokies venue in west Melbourne, you might well agree, because you probably came across Raylene Sarvak and Antony Szarvak, aka Australia’s answer to Bonnie & Clyde.

Quite why the married couple’s surname is spelt differently eludes me, but that’s not the point. The point is that much like the real Bonnie & Clyde, the couple eluded the forces of law for long enough to commit a string of armed robberies.

With the assistance of a green Kawasaki, a .357 Magnum revolver affectionately known as ‘Rosie’, a scary beard (his I assume) and a shit-load of attitude Raylene and Antony wreaked havoc in western ‘burbs gaming venues, pulling out Rosie, threatening to waste anyone who put up a fight and making off with a grand total of AUS$33,000.

Unlike the original couple – or indeed Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in the movie – Raylene and Antony didn’t get themselves shot up like heroin. They did, however, get caught, have pleaded guilty to their crime spree and are going down like China Town – oops, sorry, wrong Dunaway film. Read more.
