A Mistaken Crime
“There’s no way he makes it inside.”
“I’ll bet ya twenty he does.”
“It’s your money. Too many lights. Probably a hi-tech security system too.”
“You don’t know Pete. Best burglar around.”
Josh and Scottie stand behind a tree, peek out a few times. Josh spots the two flashes in the center window. Pete’s in.
“Told ya he’d make it in.”
“Yeah, but can he make it out?”
Josh shrugs his shoulders. They continue to watch and wait. Suddenly, a tap on their backs. Damn, cops.
Peepin’ Toms, eh?
Pete shimmies down a drain pipe. Bag slung over shoulder. Slithers away.
