Sherlock was at the repair shop the next day telling Lamont about his scheme.
'Break one of the car's side window. Tell Morris thieves did that in your shop and that you're
willing to replace the window at your expense. Tell him nothing seemed to have been stolen than
'Wait for what?'
'To see if he says something is missing. If he does, recommend my service and say you will also
pay for it. If he agrees with that, I'll bring the pouch to him to learn more about the serial killer.'
The man Morris sent looks like a federal agent. Government issues are not legitimate to use for
personal use but considering Morris' morals, one can't be sure with him.
'Mr Morris sent me,' the visitor said gravely. 'And he's wondering how thieves can tamper with
clients' cars here.'
'I'm very sorry sir,' Lamont said. 'This is the first time that happened here and it's unfortunate the
thieves chose Mr Morris' car. Maybe he would be glad to know I've replaced the window and all I
will slash forty per cent from the bill.'
'Just show me the car.'
The visitor opened a front door then the glove box. 'Have you taken something from this box? He
asked. 'Mr Morris remembered the thing when you mentioned the thieves. It's missing.'
'I check everything in computerized cars before I leave it to my workmen. I didn't find anything in
your car so probably the thieves took it... I know a friend who is famous for retrieving lost things.
'And who is that?'
'I've heard about him. I'll tell Mr Morris about him.' The man brought out his cellphone and made a
call. After about a minute, he said 'Send your friend to Mr Morris.'
