Daredevil thief in Qld high-rise spree

A bandit with the climbing skills of Spider-Man has robbed 40 high-rise apartments in Queensland - one on the 21st floor.

Police arrested the daredevil on the weekend, ending a two-month crime spree that saw him scale high-rise towers and rob units on the Gold and Sunshine coasts.

The 32-year-old is facing a string of property-related charges after making a series of epic climbs before robbing units via unlocked balcony doors.
