Ross spots him leaving his car keys behind and swipes them, only for him and Aaron to get caught red handed stripping the engine by Robert.
With his mind whirring, Robert decides not to call the police, but instead forces Ross and Aaron to stage a raid at Home Farm. Whilst first ensuring Chrissie and Lachlan are both out for the day, Robert sets Lawrence up who takes a whack with a baseball bat from Ross as they set about raiding the house with Robert watching on.
