High Speed Chase

The Puzzler


RAY: This puzzler was submitted by Chuck Leyderer. Chuck writes, "Sargent O'Malley and his rookie assistant Ned are just pulling out of the local donut shop. They get a call on the radio that the town north of them has had a bank robbery. The suspects are proceeding south, and it's a high-speed chase.

"The chase has been going on for 40 minutes, and O'Malley and Ned should be on the lookout for a yellow Mustang with two men in the front seat and a woman in the back. The State Police were in hot pursuit, but they lost them right as they were headed towards Centerville, where O'Malley and Ned work.

"What should happen, but as O'Malley and Ned are pulling out of the donut shop, they happen to see that very car with two guys in the front and a woman in the back. Sargent O'Malley says, 'That's the car, Ned! We're going to go after it. Flip on the siren, and let's get 'em!'"

"Ned, who's been studying the back of the car, says, 'I don't think so, Sarge. It's not them.'"

Just what did Ned see?
