Missing, one half of a £10 note - it was rather neatly torn down the middle and half is missing. A complete search of the area has not found the other half. No clear toothprints visible on inspection or any obvious evidence of who the culprit could be. The note was one of my own that had fallen to the floor. Only myself and the two prime suspects were present when the crime happened.
|Suspect 1 - Max|
Suspect number 1:
Max, an 11 year old smooth-haired dachshund that has an extensive past history of stealing and destroying items over the years. His crimes include chewing three leather purses, one pair of leather shoes, a camera, a mobile phone, a Radley dog, just to name a few of his heinous crimes.
Max does show guilt after his offences but it does not stop him committing further crimes.
|Suspect 2 - Pepsi|
Suspect number 2:
Pepsi, a 4 year old wire-haired dachshund who also has a criminal record similar to that of Max. Numerous chewing offences, with an extremely speedy sleight of paw and mouth when it comes to edible thievery especially. He also sometimes tries to hide his crimes by consuming the evidence.
Pepsi, unlike Max, does not show any guilt for his crimes, in fact he seems to think it is great fun to commit the offences.
There is no forensic evidence as to who stole the half of the £10 note. It was done quietly while I was otherwise occupied. But, on past history, I feel that Pepsi is the guilty party. When I found the remnant of the note Max showed no guilt at my dismay, neither did Pepsi. This leads me to surmise that Pepsi is the criminal as he never shows guilt and Max does. Also the fact that I could not find any remnant of the missing half of the note leads me to suspect that Pepsi has consumed it as he sometimes does hide the evidence of his crimes by eating it.
Pepsi you have been found guilty of the crime of stealing half of a £10 note. For this crime you will not get as many tickles as usual for 24 hours. Learn your lesson!
