Who stole the street-famous meat pie?

"My neighbor Mrs. Lawless reported a theft, her famous meat pie had been stolen and she wanted me to find the thief."


Miguela Lawless: I need your help, detective. I've been robbed and the police won't even listen to me!

Miguela Lawless: I left my famous meat-pie somewhere in my apartment to cool down. And it's gone!

Detective: A theft is a theft, no matter how small the loot. I'll take care of it.

Detective: And cash is cash, after all.


Detective: I'll talk to Ms. Lawless neighbors and try to find out more about the famous meat-pie.

Detective: The neighbors are saying they could sense the moth-watering smell from the street. Hmmm...

Detective: Wow, the smell is mouthwatering. But where was the pie cooling?

If you fail:

Detective: This is useless. Mrs. Lawless was at home the whole time, and the doors were locked. How could the meat pie disappear?

If you win;

Detective: A-ha! Simple as pie. Mrs. Lawless placed the pie on the windowsill to cool down. Maybe the caretaker saw who snatched it?

Suspect identification: Identifying Passers-byEdit

Detective: I need your help to identify the person passing under Mrs. Lawless' window.

Bob Jansen: Sure thing, boss. Just ask the questions.

Solution: Adam Smith

If you fail:

Bob Jansen: I'm sorry boss, but I can't recall who that person was. So many people were passing by the building...

If you win:

Detective: The caretaker is sure he saw him walking down the street with a frisbee. Or was it a cake pan?

City search: Tracking Down the Hungry ThiefEdit

Detective: The thief had a frisbee, so I'm probably looking for a park or a square. There aren't many around.

The meat-pie thief is:

  • more than 1 from water
  • not more than 1 from a pub
  • exactly 1 from a police station

There are candies in (4,1)

Solution: (3,3)

If you fail:

Detective: Huff. Wow, I never assumed a man who has eaten a whole meat pie is able to walk so fast!

If you win:

Detective: Excuse me sir, you're a meat-pie enthusiast, aren't you?

Adam Smith: Pardon? I'm a vegetarian. The only meat I keep at my house is dog food for Fido, over there.

Detective: So it was Fido who snatched the whole meat-pie from the windowsill! Could you keep him on a leash from now on?


If you fail:

Detective: I've got bad news. I wasn't able to find the pie thief.

Miguela Lawless: Oh dear. How will I sleep knowing there's a dangerous criminal on the streets? I need to make my husband another pie... What do you think of broccoli?

If you win:

Detective: I found the culprit, Mrs Lawless. He literally has a chain on his neck right now.

Miguela Lawless: Splendid! I'm happy he got what he deserved.

Detective: But I must warn you, Mrs. Lawless - there might be others out there. You shouldn't place your meat-pies on the windowsill anymore.
