Someone has stolen a new top-secret high-tech one-of-a-kind shipboard radar console; the NCIS receives an anonymous tip about its location. While the gang does a covert surveillance of the site, in a rough neighborhood in Washington, DC, McGee watches what appears to be a drug deal gone bad; a man dies. While the team continue the stakeout, the radar gear disappears again without their realizing; Gibbs decides for the NCIS to join the murder investigation by the Metro PD. McGee finds financial irregularities, Tony pursues those, and McGee finds coincidences; then a junkie provides a key service, the gang nab the bad guy, and a Metro homicide detective takes him away.
