CONVICTED armed robber Alan 'Fatpuss' Bradley is getting ready for his release from jail and is sport­ing a new 'Grizzly Ad­ams' look.

The DJ and bodybuild­er had been brought to the High Court where judicial reviews were being heard this week.

The Finglas mobster was jailed for seven years in 2011, later reduced on ap­peal, for his role in an at­tempted security van heist organised by Eamon ‘the Don’ Dunne.

Fatpuss sported a hipster beard as he was brought to the Courts of Criminal Justice building under tight security.

Despite the handcuffs and chains, he smiled and joked with his escorts.

The body-conscious gang­ster has previously competed in body-builder competitions complete with fake tan.

He has been serving his time in the high-security Port­laoise Prison and will have finished his sentence before the end of the year.

His brother Wayne, who got five years for his part in the same failed heist, has been out of jail since last December.

Earlier this year, the Sunday World revealed how Fatpuss had to use his influence from behind bars to keep his brother out of trouble.

It is understood Fatpuss appealed to members of the Kinahan Cartel to get a Finglas criminal to back off from trying to kill his brother.

During his time inside, Wayne had been attacked at Mountjoy by two vio­lent criminals on behalf of the rival mobster, which left him in hospital for more than a week.

Originally charged with the Bradleys over the 2007 robbery was Eamon Dunne, who dragged out the case for years.

The gang had been un­der surveillance for nine months before their ar­rest in Celbridge in 2007.

The robbery would have netted €880,000, but their arrest brought an end to a whole series of armed heists.

Alan and his younger brother Wayne have been part of Dublin's gangland crime scene since the 1990s.

The Bradleys were suspects for the 1996 robbery at the Sant­ry Omni­plex in which €600,000 was stolen.

Around the same time, they are thought to have carried out a robbery at Cornelscourt, Dublin in which €400,000 was stolen.

Fatpuss has also been known to carry out pranks, including pre­tending to throw cash from the back of a sec­ond-hand security van on the streets of Finglas.

In another he posted a pho­to of himself on social media pre­tending to break into an ATM and concert venue.
