Like a real-life Scarface Jon was once born into the higher degrees of the Gambino crime kinfolk and witnessed his first homicide at age seven. He turned a one-man juvenile crime wave earlier than becoming a member of an assassination squad in Vietnam. He back to big apple at age 20 to develop into one of many city's best nightclub promoters, then journeyed to Miami the place he turned the de facto transportation leader of the Medellin Cartel, and besides a tech-wizard companion, created probably the most subtle smuggling applied sciences ever.
With a hulking 6'6" bodyguard regularly at his part, and a rural castle safe via mortars, tear-gas cannons, and a gold-fanged assault puppy, Roberts used to be brutally potent at what he did. To legislations enforcement, he used to be often called the "Bearded Gringo," a spectre they can by no means contact. To usa senators and CIA officers, he was once "the man who can get issues done". He finally shaped a clandestine alliance with the united states executive and finally came across own late-life redemption.
