Quadruple

It was one of the city's most stylish new bars...Sitting a top a former warehouse...The crowd was mostly white, with a sprinkling of African-Americans, Latino and Asians...

A lot was going on in here...

Detective Angela Belton-Barlow was sitting in a corner by herself as a young white guy plied her with drinks...

There had been a flower pot near her..When he wasn't looking..she had poured the drinks into the flower pot..

The man was thinking..."Damn, this babe can sure put em away..She aint even had a buzz yet."  He had been trying to get her drunk...His objective was to try and take her home with him...For two week now he had been trying to get in her panties...He had no idea she was a detective with the Criminal Investigation Division of the Philadelphia Police Department..

He was Damian Fabershon...A major Heroin and Opiate dealer....He thought he was talking to Angela Williams...An accountant..

Detective Carlotta Wallace -Rodriguez walked in and walked up to the bar...One of her partners, Detective James Barlow, Angie's husband was with her...

This bar was populated with Fabershon's operatives...

The bartender smiled and walked over to her...

''Heyyyy pretty mamacita...What can I do for you?"he said.

"You could tell us where Damian Fabershon and these guys are  for starters."said Jimmy.
The bartender looked at Jimmy and smiled..Then he looked at Carlotta..

"He with you?  He can't be your boyfriend....First off...You a longggggg way from home...You ought to watch your mouth." he said.

Jimmy laughed..."Why don't you watch it for me sport?" he said..

Another guy walked up...He was like Jimmy, white, a little taller with a permanent scowl on his face.

"Somethin funny Opie?" he said.

 Jimmy kneed him in the groin and grabbed him by the back of the neck and slammed his head into the table... he fell to the ground...Before he could get up...Jimmy had his glock drawn and just inches from his nose....He and the bartender backed up.

"Now that was funny....the hole this gun will leave in you won't be.." laughed Jimmy..

 "Come on guys...let's do this nicely...No need for violence..." said Carlotta..

Carlotta flashed her badge...

''You must be Bert Jagger" she said...looking at the guy who Jimmy had just decked..

"I should have known you guys was cops." said the bartender...

  The man who had been sitting and drinking with Angie turned and walked over to Carlotta...



"Damn....they sure are making cops prettier now of days...I'm Damian, Damian Fabersham sugar britches..." he said.


"Then you and five guys I have on this warrant need to come downtown with me." she said smiling..

Two guys stood up...

"Oh just like that huh? You two think you're going to take us down?" one of them said.



Sirena walked in with her glock drawn and five shotgun toting policemen..

 "Yeah...Just like that!! ,Problem Lotta?" she said.


''Nah...I think they see our point." said Carlotta.


 Hop and Tyriq walked in with five more shotgun toting policemen...They searched the three men, took weapons off of them and handcuffed them...

Damian Fabersham and his five associates looked around...

"Damn...These guys aint playin......" said one of the guys, eying Sirena....and smiling...


"Damnnn you fine too little mama....Under different circumstances...I wouldn't mind partying with you and mamacita over there." he said.

Sirena smiled...


"Yeah ,under different circumstances......" she said with a smirk...


Carlotta looked at her friend and smiled.

Damian asked....

"You coppers do have uh warrants don't you?"


 Sissy walked in with the warrants...

"We do...Read em.....Conspiracy to distribute controlled substances...ie-Heroin, Cocaine and other illegal opiates...Distribution of illegal substances...Wire Fraud.....Running a continuing criminal organization...and that's just for starters....Go ahead...read it...For you guys...It's bed time reading.." said Sissy...

The police marched the six men out and loaded them into the paddy wagon...

I stood outside and watched..

I'm Assistant District Attorney ,Keith Wallace...I prosecute major crimes...

Detective Edwin"Duke" Baylor stood next to me..

"That makes three Keith. Three Drug crews we've taken down in the past month..." he said.

"Yeah...They're all leaner...You notice..five or six guys....no more...They all have a list of customers that they sell to, low overhead....It's smart....
''We've knocked out three main crews...but we still don't know who their supplier is...We still don't know who's dope those crews were selling.."said Sissy..

"If I could have stayed undercover a little longer ,I might have found out..." said Angie...

"And you'd be divorced...Your husband misses you...Time to come in.." said Sissy with a smile...

Angie smiled at Jimmy...

"Awwwwwwwwwwwww you missed me boo?" she asked..

''You know I did.."said Jimmy...
"Let's go home guys" said Carlotta as she hugged me...

 "Yeah, that's not a bad idea.." said Tyriq..
"I hope Eddie C. ordered some Pizzas and Stromboli's" said Sirena as we all headed for our cars...

"Not bad for a night's work.." said Hop.

II-
Once again, we all had been staying at our home away from home...The government owned apartment complex and makeshift police station known as "Copland" We'd been here for about a month...

It wasn't a prison...We all liked hanging out with each other anyway..we all had our own rooms...And it was private and perfect for working big ,sensitive cases....We had taken down three major drug crews operating in the city....We had done it without the help of Vice and Narcotics this time ,since these crews were small, all under six people, but moving a lot of weight around the city...Things were different..Criminals had evolved,economized...Gone was the days of 40 and 50 man organizations...The less people involved , the harder to track...and yet we had tracked them and put them down...

We loved hanging out with each other...but we all still wanted to go to our individual homes ,our own beds...and have the freedom to go and come when we pleased..We were about ready to go home!

When we got back...

Deputy FBI Special Agent in Charge,Sharon Ferrell-Hopkins and DEA Regional Special agent in charge, Carol Redding were talking...while Hazel and Eddie C. were playing cards..

 ''Well, hail ,hail the conquering heroes...You're back!" said Sharon...
 "Hey Guys...Good work...The DEA will take it from here...We'll find out who their connect is...I can't thank you guys enough.." said Carol.

while Hazel and Eddie C. were playing cards..
 "Heyyyy Folks...If you're Hungry....I've got Pizzas and Strombolis warming in the oven and three cases of beer." said Sissy' husband, Eddie C.
"I'm another word that begins with an H...If you know what I mean?"whispered Hazel to her husband, Duke..

Duke blushed something crazy..

"Well uh why waste time eating?" he said..
"No eat...eat...you've been on the street all day...You're going to need your strength." she said and winked at him...

Tyriq and Sirena were already kissing passionately in the corner..

So was Angie and Jimmy....


I took my cue from them and was kissing Carlotta over in the corner...


 Carol Redding smiled..

"Ouu all of this kissing makes me want to get on the road and go home...I don't think they'll be much eating going on." she said to a smiling Sissy..

"They'll get around to it...besides...They earned it...They've been working hard...We can begin packing and getting out of here tomorrow and go back to our homes and a regular rotation...I'm letting them all sleep late.."said Sissy...



Sharon and Hop became the latest couple to be in a corner of the room kissing passionately...

Eddie C. looked on...

"Come on guys...You got to eat this food..." he protested... Or else I'm taking Boss lady upstairs and uh forgetting about yall." he said and put his arms around Sissy's waste ...

"Ouuu stop ittttttt." Sissy gently protested...

"Good Night everybody....Thanks once again..." said Carol..."I'll let myself out.." she laughed..

III-
THREE DAYS LATER-
We had all had a great two days off and a third day of relative peace when we got the call, a call that was going to lead us into one of our most baffling cases....

My wife, Carlotta and her partners...Tyriq and Jimmy arrived first with Dr. Hazel Baylor...

"Aye Mios Dios....This is bad!" she said....

She kneeled down...at the front door was a busty and shapely blonde, clad in a black bra....and some jeans, with the waistband of her matching black panties showing and sandals...She had been shot once in the chest and once in the head,....She had been holding a drink goblet that had spilled..

"So when the killer came in...She got it first....They probably rang the doorbell..." said Tyriq, surveying the scene...

Jimmy grimaced.....

In the living room was a white male...Clad in Boxer shorts and a polo shirt...His jeans were on the couch..He was shot twice in the head and once in the chest, right above the heart....

"This guy heard the girl fall...I'm guessing they used a silencer and he walked in and got hit too." said Jimmy...who looked around...

"A lot of drinks around here...These two looked like they were about to party.."he said.

"The girl's pants were unbuckled, half assed....There is semen on her... I can smell a lot of weed smoke...You're right Jimmy, these two were partying..." said Hazel...

Just then, I walked in with Sissy,Duke, Angie, Sirena and Hop....

"Oh wow! A Double..." I said..

"Oh My God....Anybody look upstairs?" asked Sissy...

"We can go up...come on partner." said Sirena...

"Right behind you." said Hop...

They unholstered their weapons and backed by five uniformed officers they went upstairs...

''Anybody identified them yet?" asked Duke..

"Oh my God!" said Angie...

"LIEUTENANT!   We got two more bodies up here!" said an officer....

We all rushed upstairs...
In the bedroom, lie a woman clad in a sheer babydoll, with matching peach panties...One gunshot to the head...

On the floor face down, was one man, nude with an unopened condom wrapper in his hand...One shot to the back of the head....
"They never knew what hit them!" said Sirena..

''Dude probably got hit first...and then the girl.." said Hop...
"Aye Mios Dios.." said Carlotta, who saw a smoking reefer in a tray..... "They were obviously partying...probably about to have sex...." she said.

"Unless they did already....There is an awful lot of semen on this bed already!"said Hazel...
"The rest of the house is clear....No more bodies thank god...Haze, your CSI people are here ,along with Police photographers....

"Jimmy and I have instructed the uniforms outside to seal the perimeter...."said Hop...

"I already got a team on the street cams..."said Jimmy...
"I got some guys canvassing the neighborhood, questioning people in the adjoining lofts and searching the dumpsters for anything.."said Tyriq..

"I got a positive identification on one of the deceased....He's Mikal Favershon...That name sound familliar?" asked Sirena..
"Why? Should it?" I asked Sirena...

''We just took down Damian Febershon's drug crew a few days ago...Mikal is his younger brother..." said Sirena..
"Wow!  But this guy isn't or wasn't on our radar...We have no evidence of him being involved in the drug crew at all..."said Sissy...

"You think that maybe this was retribution?" asked Carlotta...

"Retribution for what?  This guy wasn't a player....He's got no sheet and we have no evidence he was in the game on any level...and who are these other people?" asked Tyriq..
"I have that...Downstairs...The guy is Chuck Levinson...29, an Architect....No sheet.....The girl at the front door is Hazel Bennett, 28, works for a Non-Profit in town...No Sheet either...and this woman in the bed,Megan Purify, 27, A student at Lasalle at night and she worked with Hazel at the Non-Profit...No Sheet......" said Angie...

"You know, this could be something else...Just a co-incidence that it's Damian Faberson's younger brother..It could have no connection to him." I said.

"True...but we ought to ask him just the same.." said Sissy...

"Rico,Jimmy and I will go see him." said Carlotta...
"Good ...and somebody notify next of kin of all four victims...Maybe somebody knows something.."said Sissy...

"We've got shell casings ,fingerprints and lots of shell casings." said Hazel...

"You know, maybe somebody was just pissed that they weren't invited to the party." said Jimmy...

"Goofball." said Angie, as we all busted out laughing....

The only thing we could laugh about, considering the situation...

A quadruple homicide!
