We continue our story from here
Everybody is rudely interrupted during their early morning activities, when a Tsunami warning hits Hawaii. Apparently it is a requirement to wear clothes when you answer you phone in Hawaii – no nude phone conversations there it seems 😀
The head of the Tsunami Warning centre Dr Norman Russell is mysteriously missing on the same day when a Tsunami warning comes through. Is it coincidence?
The team follow the leads and Steve realise that the signal for the tsunami warning does not come from the buoys at sea, but from a computer on the Island. With Cath’s help, they track down the hacker and she helps them to locate the abducted head of the Tsunami centre. Steve suspects that somebody wanted the evacuation to happen, in order to commit a crime in the area that is deserted.
After identifying one of the kidnappers of Dr Russell and looking at possible targets the team realise that the asset forfeiture locker of the police is the target………..
Steve: They’re going for what they think is $28 million dollars.
Danny: What they think is 28 million.
Chin: Not till you borrowed 10 million to save my life.
Steve: We didn’t have a choice. Look if we didn’t meet Hess’s demand of $10 million, he would have killed you.
Kono: 28 million, 18 million, it doesn’t really matter. They’re hitting the locker now.
Steve: She’s right.
Danny: Hold on for one second. Let’s just think. Think about what this means.
Steve: I know what this means, Danny.
Danny: We go bust these guys, HPD does an inventory on that money, they’re gonna see that $ 10 million is missing.
Kono: It doesn’t necessarily trace back to us.
Steve: We asked the Governor to borrow $ 10 million and she turned us down. As soon as HPD tell her exactly how much is missing, she’s gonna put it all together. What’s the alternative?
Danny: We can let them go. We get a clean slate. All right and I never look at my daughter in the face again. Let’s go.
Steve: I’ll drive.
Steve and Danny realise that Commander Hale of the Coastguard who they met earlier that day, is the culprit. He was part of the original team of the Coastguard who cracked the case and then confiscated the money with HPD.
Hale: Coastguard tracked that drug deal for six months. It was supposed to be our takedown, but then HPD swooped in, took the credit, Now I’m being pushed out before my 20, no pension, no benefits. My country owes me.
Steve: Hey, let’s clear one thing up right now. You swore to support and defend this country, no matter what the cost. She doesn’t owe you anything, okay.
The Governor calls a meeting with Steve…..the team expect the worst!
Steve: She wanted to thank us. Actually she wanted to, uh, congratulate us on another job well done.
Danny: I’m sorry, what?
Chin: All right , what about the money?
Steve: Twenty-eight million. It’s all present and accounted for.
Kono: Hmmm? What? Whoa. I don’t understand.
Steve: The money s all there.
