As they drive to the store, they did not ever see the car following them.  They continued to argue a bit about Joe helping the cop the catch the fur thieves and came to a conclusion that he would not do it.  We pick up at the scene at the grocery store.

Shela “Don’t get me wrong babe,’ ‘I like the idea of you making lots of money, and that is why I agreed to you selling these fur coats from that web-site we saw on-line.” “I though it was a good idea, and see, you already made $300.00, 300 dollars.”…..read more

Before the cop can leave, a store owner came running out of his store.

Store owner “You not going to arrest him!, your not going to arrest him?!”
Police “No he’s not the right man!”
Store owner “What do you mean, he’s not the right one, didn’t you look at-em, you crazy? of course he’s the right man.’ ‘You basted you!  He said as he snarled at Joe.
Police  “Now that is enough,’  I already check him out, and he was clean.”  He said as he grabbed the old man to hold him back. “He’s clean.’ “Now go back into your store, I need to get further statements from you before I do my report.
As the man reluctantly goes back, the cop apologizes to Joe and says; “Please forgive that old man, he’s had a rough life”  ‘He’s one of the few fur  merchants that survived the great depression.”
Joe “The great depression?’ Damn! He is old.” “It’s quite  alright’
Police  “Good man!” “You think about what I said, if you can help, I will make it worth you wile.’  ‘Okay?”
Joe “I’ll think  about it,’ but if I do, you are going to have to get me a vest,’ I would  like to live to spend the money.”
Police “Don’t worry I will keep you real safe.”
Joe “Cool, I still want a vest, later copper, I am long over due getting home to my wife.” “Peace Man!  As he leaves he see’s a man watching him after he was talking to the cop, when he did not pay him any mind and walked  away he could still feels something uneasy about his stare. It kind of stuck in his mind.  However he got into his car and drove off.

Shela “You look alright he did not  rough you.”

“More fur your Money”

Police “Freeze!” ‘Don’t move!’ ‘And put your hands up.”
Joe “What seems to be the problem officer” “Just doing a little business, officer”
Police ‘If you don’t mind, I will ask the questions.’  “Sir!”  “Where did you get all these furs, sir?”
Joe  “I bought them off a web-site to sell, I told you, I am a business man.”
Police “Maybe so sir, but all the local retailers have been complaining about furs missing out of their stores.”  “Do you happen to have a receipt for your on-ling purchase?”
Joe “Yes officer!”
Police “Put your hands down and get it!”
Joe  “Okay, sir, here it is,’  ‘You don’t think I got caught in a trick bag,’ ‘Do-ya?
Police “No,’ ‘probably not, but I will check it out.”  “Wait right here, I will check it out.”  The officer goes to his car for a moment and comes back.
Police “You story checks out, and you are free to go, but, be careful out here, and take my card.”  “If you see anything strange or anyone trying to sell you some furs cheap, don’t buy them.”  “However, contact me asap.’  ‘Hah!’  ‘That is nice”  “How much is that?
Joe “You like the white one,’ ‘$300.00”
Police “$300.00?” “You got to be kidding me,’  ‘I know for sure I saw that very same piece for $1000.00 in one of my wife’s mags.
Joe “You probably did, but ordering on-line, has some advantages.”  “You see I asked them for the furs that may have flaws in them, that they may not be able to get sold, that way I can sell them cheaper and make more sales”
Police “Smart!” “Sold!”  “My wife is going to love this, flaws or no flaws.”
Joe “Thank You officer!’  ‘Pleasure doing business with you.”
Police “I just got a good idea.”  “How would you like to make some extra money.”
Joe “Oh-no! I see that look in your eyes, no no no I can’t help you can not help you catch those bad guys’  ‘I’m allergic to bullets.
