Seeing no future in the Bronx, Lawton joined the Coast Guard in August 1979 at the age of 17. After seven years in the Coast Guard, Lawton was medically retired due to a back injury. He moved to Brooklyn, where Lawton was drawn back into organized crime as a bookmaker and collector while working in bars in Queens and Brooklyn. Lawton’s acumen and aggressiveness eventually caught the attention of higher-ups in organized crime. This led to his occupation as a jewelry thief and robbing stores all along the East Coast of the United States. He also used part of his earnings to purchase an Italian pizza restaurant in North Lauderdale, Florida, which he later burned down in an insurance fraud scam.
