Cops And Robbers


A bright sunny Saturday morning in the city.....It was nice to be off...I was sitting around our house in my boxer shorts, looking at my wife gather the laundry....I am, Assistant District Attorney, Keith Wallace most of the week....Today...I'm just Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace's husband..
Carlotta was, Detective Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace most days...Today she was just my wife...And I was enjoying watching her gather the sheets and pillow cases and other things that needed washing..
Especially since she was clad in one of my shirts and white string bikini panties..
She looked at me and smiled and threw a pillow at my head...I ducked and smiled...

"You could help you know." she said.

"I will...I will..I uh am just so distracted..."I said slyly...

She smiled and sat on my lap....

"Distracted by what?" she laughed....Then she looked at me and smiled...

"Oh my goodness...I feel something hard that might distract me.." she said..

"Oh yeahhh" I said...looking at her sheepishly...

''Yeahhhhh." she laughed..

I pulled her to me and kissed her passionately....

"Ohh papi....If we keep this up...we aren't going to get anything done." she said, continuing to kiss me..

From a distance,I heard both of our phones ringing...

"The phone is ringing." she said in between kisses..

"Let it ring." I said in between more kisses...

She laughed and got up and picked up the phone...Why do women always do that? Answer the phone regardless of what is going on??

She got off the phone after a few minutes and walked over to me...

"We got a situation papi...That was Boss Lady!!! Four guys just took a bank down strongly...They have hostages.....One of em is Angie!!" said Carlotta...

''What??"I said.

"We have to go to her." said Carlotta...

"Hit the showers, we are there." I said.

II-
The bank was just a few blocks from where we lived.... Sissy was the first person we saw when we arrived...
We were joined shortly there after by the rest of our crew... Tyriq, Sirena, Duke,Hazel, Hop and of course Jimmy...
"What's going on Sissy?" I asked...
"Angie is hidden in there right now...They haven't found her yet....but apparently it's four people,One Woman, three men...two White and one Black male....They seem like pros...They took the bank down hard and fast...They have a lot of hostages right now..." said Sissy..
"They ask for anything?" I asked...

"No Not yet.." said Sissy.

Carlotta walked over to Jimmy....
"You okay partner?" she said... They had known each other since the academy...Had become Detectives together....They were very close...
"I'm scared Carlotta....They haven't found her yet...but what happens when they do? What happens when they discover that she's a cop?" he said.

''We are going to get her out of there...Think positive." said my wife.

Within minutes...The FBI drove up...They came in droves and in a Mobile FBI crime lad vehicle.....and so did the Philadelphia Police Tactical Squad.....
Lt. Edward Cantrell had his Sergeants spread his tactical teams out....He spoke to Sharon...

''We'll guard the perimeter...It's your show Sharon...Anything you need...Just let me know." he said.

"Thank you Lieutenant." she said.

The FBI surrounded the bank and put snipers on the roofs in front of the bank and on the adjoining streets..

The Philadelphia Police Tactical squad protected the perimeter..
Lt. Cantrell walked over to Sissy upon seeing her...It was the first time he'd seen her in the weeks since our last case ,when he and DEA Carol Redding were caught in the throes of passionate love of a carnal nature..

''Hello Siselia...What brings you guys here?" he asked...

"Angie is in there Lieutenant." she said as cool as a cucumber..

''Angie Belton??? Oh my god..."he said.

"Sharon and the FBI seem to have everything under control...but still, we want to be here for her."said Sissy.

"I perfectly understand...well...Like I told Sharon...If you guys need anything..Manpower...Weapons, anything..I'm here." he said.

''Thank you Lieutenant." she said.

He touched her hand softly....

"Sissy...You can call me Ed....We are way past formalities..."he said.

Sissy didn't say anything...She looked away from him...

"I've got to go now." she said.

He just stared at her...

FBI Special Agent, Sharon Ferrell-Hopkins, our laison... motioned for us to come over..and come inside..

"I figured you guys would be here...Come on inside...I've got coffee and playtoys that you guys don't haveee." she said playfully....

Usually The FBI would take over this entire operation and tell Philly PD that we could go home..But Sharon and us didn't work that way...
"Sharon, what is the deal here?" asked Sissy...
"Whoever these idiots are...They set off the silent alarm in the bank..." said Sharon.
''These aren't idiots Sharon...Angie said they're pros...and it's four of them...A woman and three men.." said Sissy.

''Angie is in there?" asked Sharon.

"Yes...That's how we got here....She's hidden in there, but she's given me a 20 on the make up of the crew , the hostages and everything." said Sissy.

"Oh My God...This makes this even more urgent...If they find her...If they find out she's a cop..."she said then looked around...She saw Jimmy and she said no more...

"It's okay...I know the deal...I'm good with it....Just tell me what I can do.." he said.

"Jimmy...don't be mad at me...but we got this...This is FBI jurisdiction...This is what we do...But I tell you what...You and Sissy, you come and sit with me up front in the crisis room, where I'm running point.." she said and hugged him...


III-
Detectives Tyriq Pile and Edwin "Duke" Baylor and I got some tumblers of coffee and stood outside and talked amongst ourselves...


"Damn Keith...It's a good thing I love Angie...I swear....Me and Sirena was in the shower and we weren't just washing up, if you get my drift..." said Tyriq...

"Mannn, who you tellin? Me and Carlotta had just got started up when the phone rang!" I said laughing...

"I hear you...Me and Hazel was just finishing up...I was thinkin about goin again when the phone rang." said Duke, smiling...

Detective Antonio Hopkins walked outside and stood with us...
"Man...This job really messes up my love life." said Hop....

We all laughed...

"You too?" we said.

"Man..We was having a time...you hear me? Goin hard when she got a call saying that the bank got taken down and that there was hostages...She had to go...Then Lt. Sissy called me after Sharon had left and told me that Angie was a hostage in the bank...Turns out ...It's the same bank..." said Hop..

"Angie is one of us...She's not Homicide anymore..but she is family." said Tyriq.
"Damn right...Rico, We were the three muskateers...Me ,you and Ang...Been rollin tight since the police academy....Made detective together...the whole works.." said Duke.
"Wow, you guys go way back.." said Hop..
"Just like you and Carlotta and Sharon." I said.
"We are childhood friends." said Hop.
III-
Sissy called for us to come into the Mobile crime lab....

"I think we Ided  the crew.." she said.

"From the description we gave Sharon...She was able to go on Interpol's website and indentify these guys ."said Carlotta.

We saw the mug shots of A Black man...Jeff Tabor, a South African , a White Woman, Sylvia Johhanson,From Norway, Brett Eegan, from Norway and the ring leader..Ezra Dane...a South African.
This crew was implicated in a number of bank robberies and jewelry heists in Europe...None of these guys had been captured to date or convicted, but they were indeed professionals and worked very dilligently.

"These guys match the description, but I don't understand... If they are this good...How did they accidentally set off the bank alarm ?" said Sirena..
"Maybe they didn't set it off accidentally, maybe they wanted to do this." said Hazel..
''Why? From reading the information on these guys, they rely on speed and stealth...Something else is going on here." said Jimmy...He was right..
"The walls are too thick for our guys to drill a hole and employ a fiber optic camera...Damn..I need a view of the floor..." said Sharon..

"It's weird that they haven't asked for anything.." said Duke..
"Yeah...They know we have the place surrounded... You'd think they'd be demanding something by now." said Tyriq..

"My phone....It's Angie!" said Sissy.

IV-
"Sissy, it's me..." said Angie..

''We are all here girl, everybody...We have this place surrounded.."said Sissy.

"I know...I can see you out the window...Something weird is going on in here." she said.

"Weird?" said Sissy..

"They set the alarm off on purpose...One em asked the bank teller where the silent alarm was and then told her to push the button...Who does that??"asked Angie..

"I know, we are already suspecting something is up...We IDed your crew...They're foreigners..and they're pros.." said Sissy.

"They seem to be interested in something else... other than money...They haven't stole a penny...They took a hostage... I think it's the bank president...in the back and they haven't come out yet...The woman and The black guy are guarding everybody...The two white guys went in the back..."she said.

"Angie....thanks for the info...get off this phone and stay hidden girl..We'll work something out."said Sissy...
I put my arm around Sissy...I could tell that she was shaken ,this was next to my wife...one of her closest friends..
Jimmy looked frustrated...I could tell that he really loved Angie...He wanted to be able to do something so bad...

Carlotta walked over to me...
"We need to be able to do something..." she said.

"There is nothing we can do but wait....I want to do something too...but the ball is in their court...for now." I said.

I sure hated it when the bad guys held all of the cards!

That exchange between Sissy and Ed Cantrell was interesting....Seems these two are not over each other yet....They're going to wind up in bed yet and it's going to be explosive!
