Reed and Malloy spot an open back door to store on night patrol. When they investigate it, a car suddenly leaves the alley as they enter the shop. Malloy steps on a rug setting of a buzzer and the store owner comes out brandishing a rifle. It appears the owner was waiting for someone in ambush. They report it to Mac who passes it on to the detectives. He reports back the store owner has a clean sheet and came to the country 17 years earlier from Eastern Europe. They decide to talk to a local priest who knows the store owner. When the owner hears this, he complains to Mac. Next day the men handle a call from a woman with a drunk man in her car. He had been buying her drinks at the bar there. Later, they receive a report of shots at the store and arrive to find an intruder knocked out on the floor and no one else there. They visit the priest who has the owner in his office. The intruder was a man who worked with the Nazis in Europe and did not want to be turned in. Written by Anonymous
