Storyline

The detectives investigate a recent series of burglaries. The crimes have identical MOs to those of several known burglars. However, when these suspects are checked out, it turns out one was dead when the crimes occurred, one was in prison, and another has an alibi that checks out completely. It appears that a copycat is at work, and the detectives come to suspect that a respected retired cop may be the one they're looking for. Written by anonymous
