Quilly's Words no.2

Words:

Quilly offered us a chance to write a story based on three words.

This week's words are Fracas, numismatic, and perspicacious

And here is my story.
Thief Caught?


Sandy Shore was watching the evening news. The reporters were interviewing Pam about her being tied up in the old bus on the resort property. Then the scene shifted to the local jail as police officers were leading a man into the jail. They caught the man.

Sandy was surprised at who the man was. He did not look like a thug or a thief. He was dressed in suit and tie. Suddenly a fracas broke out.

The man was shouting,"I am not a thief, I am a victim."

The reporters swarmed around him.

"Who are you,"they asked.

"Hudson Carne, I am a numismatic, and with perspicacious judgment I bought a rare coin for $1,600 dollars. I had it in a safe but thieves broke into my home, and stole it and other valuables.

"The police have evidence that you were the one who tied up Pam Stream and left her to die.

"Yes I was the one who tied her up , I thought she was one of the thieves. I had hired a private detective, who found that the old bus was a hiding place for their ill gotten treasure. I watched and waited until the thieves left the bus and I went in to get back my stuff. They apparently had removed the stolen items, maybe even sold them."

The police again took over and dragged the man into the Jail.

The TV reporter said" there is more to this story folks and we will keep on it."


Sandy called Pam. "Did you see the newscast? That money we found is probably from selling the stolen items. I wonder who has the coin?
I think we will have to make a trip to the police station and talk to them.
