The Missing Getaway Car

The Puzzler


RAY: Here's the answer. What the officer saw was that the disc brake rotors were rusted. If a car had been sitting for days, that is what would happen. But if it had been used yesterday in a bank robbery and the brakes had been slammed on, especially several times to avoid a collision with a tanker truck, or a pedestrian, then the rust would have been scraped off and Knuckles would have been in deep doo-doo.

But he was innocent. The red Mustang was a red herring. Who's our winner, Tommy?

TOM: The winner is Wayne Blythe from Chesapeake, VA. Congratulations Wayne!
