Here she said going into her bag; Darren gave me this just in case he was ever arrested.’
They dropped Tanya off at the safe house in Darras Hall. She asked for her clothes and the men went into the cases and took out the birthday gift.’
“Got to make sure his mother gets this said Mel as Tanya walked towards the house and opened the door with the spare key Darren had given her.’
The police went through the formalities of name, address, and they took Ingles finger prints and mug shot.
Then he was taken to a cell and left for an hour to sweat.’
Rob rang Ralph Mason Down at HQ in Manchester to tell them that they had Ingles.’
We need something to keep him locked up Sir or when his brief gets here he’s going to walk in 72 hours.’
Tell his brief that we found a large quantity of Cocaine in his house and we are doing him on intent to supply a known narcotic.’
“Well done Sir,’
“I will fax you some photos of a few pounds of cocaine that will be enough to satisfy his brief.
“Once we have him in custody we can question him about the robbery and the murder of Graeme Smith.
“Kipper Heron and I are going now because I think Jonathan Hardington from “Crutes” just arrived just been informed so I’m going down to see what I can get out of him.’
Hello,’ I’m Detective sergeant Robert Black from the Manchester Police department.’
“Is it possible to speak with my client?’
“Yes, we will allow you ten minutes come this way.’
Darren was sitting on the grey waterproof mattress in the eight by six foot cell. There was a toilet in the cell and some Izal toilet paper.
The door to the cell was opened and Jonathan entered then the door was locked behind them.
“Darren this one is going to be a tough one to get you out of. I’ve just read the charge sheet what the hell have you been up to?
Look firstly I never killed anyone, and the drugs are a jumped up charge; they have no proof.’
“What about the robbery; it’s all bullshit Jonathan just get me out of here.’
“I’ll do my best; just deny everything they ask or just say no comment.’
“I know how this works Jonathan.’
Okay now they will be taking us down to the interview room in a minute.’
“Now there is nothing that they can pin the robbery to in your houses is there?’
“Good Jonathan knocked on the cell door and the officer let him out.’
Shortly after Rob Black and Kipper Heron came back and opened the cell where Ingles was being held then escorted him to the interview room.
The tape recorder was switched on and Rob spoke first “my name is detective Sergeant Robert Black of the Manchester Constabulary and for the benefit of the tape I am being assisted by detective Kenneth Heron.’
