Sometimes, criminals managed to make police work ridiculously easy. Dee and Ryo’s latest potential source of information had given them the slip, bolting the moment he spotted them, and yet, despite knowing the area better than they did, he didn’t prove all that hard to find. All they had to do was follow the muffled sneezes to where he was hunkered down in a small alcove behind a dumpster.
“Why’d ya have to run, Freddie?” Dee griped. “We just wanted to talk and now you’ve made yourself look guilty. You know what that means; we’ll have to take ya in.”
“He’s right, Freddie; you might as well come out of there,” Ryo added. “We’re not leaving until you do.”
There was another series of sneezes from Freddie’s hiding place. “Aw man! How’d you even find me? I thought I was the only one knew about this hideaway!” He sneezed again.
Dee and Ryo exchanged looks, both of them struggling not to laugh; Freddie was a minor crook and far from the brightest guy on the planet, but surely even he had to know he was giving his position away with every sneeze.
“Lucky guess,” Dee finally replied as Ryo snickered.
