POLICE LOG: Officers pose as car sales associates as part of a sting operation. A suspect apprehended during the operation leads the team into a potentially explosive situation as one rookie’s life hangs in the balance. Detailed report follows:
While out on patrol with Noelle, Dov takes down a serial lawbreaker. He had a little help from a couple of kids armed with a slingshot. After giving the boys a little lecture, Dov tosses them a salute to say thanks for the backup. The squad is looking to build on the success of this bust by engaging in an old-fashioned sting. Anyone up for a little role-playing?
The officers of 15 Division pose as salespeople at an auto dealership. They’ll be telling people with outstanding warrants that they won a new car to lure them into the trap. Once identities are confirmed in the control room, Oliver will give the signal for the arrest. The code phrase he chooses is “Bohemian Rhapsody.” A fine choice.
Sam would have a fine career in auto sales if he wasn’t a cop. He’s smooth as can be as he arrests a deadbeat dad. A few of the rookies need a little more experience in the showroom though. Dov’s inability to detail the rules of the fake car contest causes a suspect to flee. Sam takes him down, but the woman Andy and Traci were about to arrest escapes during the brouhaha.
