The Case of the Missing Diamond
by: Kyla D. & Alexa M.
A diamond has been stolen from Jason's Jewelry store at 1:03 a.m. this morning, the precious and beautiful diamond that was on show was stolen. The cops arrived just too late. They investigated the scene and they found a small, padded, purple glove. This makes it even harder for the detectives because all of the suspects where either up at or around the time the diamond was stolen. Most of them had gloves and most of them needed padding. It was hard for the detectives that the criminal had on gloves which made it hard because there were no fingerprints to go by no shoe prints for shoe size.
The Puzzling Question
Who could be so sneaky and quick to avoid the cops and get away the diamond? They had to have planned for a while. Had to have a lot of time out of life to think of this sneaky deed.
