The Incident - 27

The Incident – 27

+ 2 Days : 8 Hours : 19 minutes

Alright, I know most of you have had barely any sleep and to be honest neither have I…

You look like it

Thanks Smitty. All I want to say is that we have to keep at it, I am in contact with the AFP and with the New South Wales boys, the Army, as well as having phone calls from the top house every five seconds.
I need all of you to get minimum four hours rest a night. Firstly, for those who haven’t heard on the drop:
It was bogus and they wanted us to know it.
They couldn’t have got a mile close to it and the money didn’t move.
Negotiators saying it’s not a ransom they want so that does rule out some groups.

Next I need an update on a few things quickly so keep your answers brief as to how it’s going.
Smitty since you seem the most awake, how’s the car going?

It’s pretty clean, we might have five different prints, all on the outside of the car, so could be anybody. Guns were all handguns clean but have been handed over to ballistics. They’ll take some time, but they’ve confirmed bullets match some of the rounds found but no dice with the details on the guns themselves. We have three numbers off one plate out of seven.

Plate? License?

No, just the serial number plate. We also found some chocolate wrappers. We’re going through the truck stops to see if we can find anyone who saw the cars if they stopped off. Doubtful though.

Anything upcoming

We’re still working on blood samples to see if we can get another one.

Okay, good luck to the team; any updates copy them out to us and us only. Anderson, what’s happening with the tracking?

Good news, we’ve got the second car…

That’s great.

… but it’s crap as well. and it leads us a little further south, no guns in this one, and we’re checking creeks and lakes in that direction and past it. Speculation is that a semi picked them up which doesn’t sound too good. We have a monitoring camera an hour up the highway but there are five turn offs into and out of the road. If they were smart…

Which we can’t assume yet.

… They would have some way around. We’ll start checking it tomorrow.

How many trucks?

Over a hundred. And that is if they had a truck, three cars could have done exactly the same thing and that’s in the tens of thousands then…

Many people were affected when the incident occurred,
It’s ramifications hit all people in all walks of life. The audacity of the plan, the violent impact and the responses sent minds reeling.


There will always be a story, somewhere.
