The first time Jake spots Gloria through the telescope he watches her for a moment, then she moves across the room. Jake is then shown turning the telescope a couple of inches to follow her movement. From his distance, a couple inches would have been much too far too keep her view.

Plot holes 

When Jake is being interrogated by the detective, the detective initially says that he has a problem with Jake because Jake is the only witness to the murder. Later in the interrogation, the detective says that he can not hold Jake because he has witnesses to back up Jake's story.

Revealing mistakes 

The first time "The Indian" attempts to use the drill, when the cord is too short to reach, the drill is running in reverse. That would make it pretty tough to use in the eventual manner.
