Also, later in the 1960s, the American TV series “T.H.E. Cat” had a former burglar who did detective work. John Creasey (under the pseudonym Anthony Morton, one of many) wrote a long series of books featuring “The Baron”, another retired thief who gets involved in adventures.

There was a 1 1/2 hour long series with Tony Curtis and Roger Moore called The Persuaders, who were con-men working for good.
