Due South

Okay, Mr. Hamlin...
...as we play the tape
I want you to talk us through it, okay?

Okay... Okay.
Play the tape.
Go ahead.

Security camera runs twenty four
hours in the place.

They come in at 4:38 and gone by 4:41.
Three minutes.
Indicating someone with a lot of experience.
Or someone quick on their feet.
Here they are. Here they are.
Three of them.

Two of them were maybe six feet,
other one wasn't even five foot three or four.

The little one just stuck a gun in my ribs.
He just shot someone I thought.

Yeah sure you did.
Did he say anything?
Just open the vault so I did.
Looks like they knew what they were after.
They didn't touch any of the other stuff.

Just the bearer bonds.
The little one, you said
he was five three or four.

Could it have been a kid?
You know, a teenager.

I'm not sure,... uh,...
...yeah, I suppose, yes.

Not a betting man are you Benny?
Lambert, William.
Age 13.

Quite a little record here Willie.
Seven arrests. First at age ten.
Petty theft. Theft. More theft.

I had to support my mother.
You don't have a mother, kid.

He also has no convictions
so you shouldn't have that list.

We don't need it.
We checked your prints against the gun.
The only ones that come up are yours.
You're going down for this one Willie.

I told you I found it somewhere.
You don't have to tell them nothing.

Well that's true but I'd suggest
it's in Willie's best interest to talk to us.

If you are innocent son,
the police have no reason to incarcerate you.

You're not from around here are you?
I'm suppose to trust you?
Well I think you know you can.
Look. All I know about cops is
all they want to do is just put you away.

All right.
Ray I think we've done all we can here.
Yeah the kid's born mean.
Hey-hey-hey wait a minute.
You're not going to offer me
some kind of deal or something?

All I can give you is my word
that I'll do my best for you.
