"A truck full of jelly-beans was stolen by persons unknown. All local criminals wanted to take control over the load. Just another day in the business."
Leonardo McLean: My favorite detective friend! I have an interesting case for you! Very profitable, and only a lad like you will solve it!
Leonardo McLean: A government transport of jelly beans is missing. But here's the problem - no one in the underworld knows where it is. It didn't hit the black market.
Leonardo McLean: Look, people deserve to eat something sweet once a while. We can find the beans and then decide what to do. I've heard there's a reward...
Leonardo McLean: I have a great business opportunity for you! Sweet money for a sweet girl!
Detective: I hope it's not some horrible scheme to go on a date with me.
Leonardo McLean: I'm serious! A government transport of jelly beans is missing. But here's the problem - no one in the underworld knows where it is. It' didn't hit the black market.
Leonardo McLean: You're just saying that because you don't like me. It's a great opportunity, and we can even return the jellies if you want. I've heard there's a reward!
Leonardo McLean: I'm on it. And oh, I'm sure we'll have competition. Both the police and the criminals want to take over the sweet cargo!

Leonardo McLean: The boys told me this happened in front of a general store in this neighborhood.
Detective: That's right. The word around the town is that the driver parked in front of the store, went inside to buy a coffee, and when he left, the car was gone.
Detective: "The boys"? I don't even want to know! I found out that the driver parked in front of the store, went inside to buy a coffee, and when he left, the car was gone.
Crime scene search: A Bean in the HaystackEdit
Leonardo McLean: No offense taken. I know how most of the crooks operate.
Detective: Thieves are usually a sloppy bunch and I hope this one isn't better than the rest. Maybe we'll manage to find some of the cargo.
Leonardo McLean: Sloppy bunch? Who are you calling sloppy? We won't find a pile of jellies, that's for sure. Maybe a single jelly stuck in a gutter, or something like that.
Detective: What do we have here? A jelly bean. Maybe one of the boxes was cracked?
Leonardo McLean: I found another one! And another!
Detective: Great! A trail of jelly beans will lead us straight to the transport.
City search: The Sweetest TrailEdit
Detective: We need to follow the trail and find the transport. If I was the thief I'd hide the truck in some parking lot...
Leonardo McLean: "If I was a thief"? Hang out with me and you'll become a proper thief in no time. And a parking lot is a bad idea. An alley in between buildings would be better.
Leonardo McLean: "If I was a thief"? Hang out with me and you'll become a proper thief in no time, sugar. Parking lots are for rookies, dark back alleys are for pros.
The truck you are looking for is:
- exactly 4 from a train station
- not more than 1 from a shop
- not more than 1 from a club
- exactly 5 from a pub
- On the map there are 3 shops
- On the map there are 2 clubs
- On the map there are 2 pubs
Leonardo McLean: Ha! In an alley, just like I said... What the... It's empty! All the beans are gone! Someone beat us to it!
Detective: Relax, there's still a way. We need to stake-out the truck. Come on.
Detective: I'd love to see you cry all day about it, but I need the case solved. Come on. We need to stake-out the truck.
Suspect identification: Sticky FingersEdit
Leonardo McLean: I've seen someone snooping around the truck. But the street lamps were off and I'm not sure how the person looked like. Someone small, I think.
Detective: I took some photos of people passing through the alley during daylight. Maybe this will allow us to identify the thief...
Detective: Gee, that's a big help! Luckily, I took some photos of people passing through the alley during daylight. Maybe our short thief is on one of them...
Detective: Excuse me, little girl. I think you might have stolen some government property.
Lily Tyson: I don't like to play cops and robbers. But maybe I could be a space captain and you'll be an evil mutant from outer space?
Lily Tyson: I don't like to play cops and robbers. But maybe I could be a space captain and you'll be an evil alien queen?
Detective: No, I'm serious. You took the sweets, right?
Lily Tyson: Listen up, mister. Do you really think that a ten year old, cute little girl like me could steal a truck, drive it all the way here and eat all the jellies?
Detective: I never said anything about a truck or the jellies. So you did steal them!
Lily Tyson: Perhaps I did. Perhaps my dad taught me how to drive a car. What are you planning to do? Tell everyone the truth?
Detective: I see your point, space captain. You might have beaten me today, but I'll return, stronger than ever!
Lily Tyson: I'm counting on it! Until we meet again, evil space mutant!
Leonardo McLean: So, you're saying you were outsmarted by a ten year old girl?
Leonardo McLean: Not really. Stubborn girls are more of your specialty.
Detective: Are you suggesting something?
Detective: I have my reasons.
Detective: Come on, maybe we'll get a reward for the truck we found. A bird in hand is better that two in the bush.
Leonardo McLean: Maybe you should. I already have experience with some extremely annoying girls.
Detective: Oh, and what did that experience lead you to?
Leonardo McLean: Well, I convinced to follow a case with me. We found the trail of jellies, located the truck and confronted the thief. And we'll probably get a reward for returning the truck.
Detective: I'd say that's a pretty good job, partner.
