When he become sixteen years he leaves his father's home to go live outside of civilization as an outlaw who steals money from the rich to help the poor and was then regarded as a bandit. In 1961 he began his wicked career and robbed a judge by the name of MacEvoy. He stole the judge's goal without any conflict for no man dare go against the Wild Colonial Boy.

He shot one of the troopers and he fell to the ground and with that another trooper took the opportunity to shoot the Wild Colonial Boy and that is the tale of how they captured him.
