Chapter 466: This is the Devil’s Game (Part Two)
– FBI HQ –
The team leader looked at Withers and said, “What do you have to say for yourself?”
“What can I say? Don’t you think it’s ridiculous for you guys to arrest me?” Withers said angrily.
“Yesterday, you and your team were already notified to not touch this case anymore. But today, I caught your subordinate coming into the casino. The people at the casino said that someone who claimed to be with the FBI came to warn them but also went to gamble. Then, he won 8 times in a row! From 10 thousand, he turned it to 20, 40, 80, 160, 320, 640, 1.28 million, 2.56 million! Every round, he was very swift and decisive with what to bet, and he also went all-in every time! This behavior was the same as the group that was plundering the casinos’ money earlier, and your subordinate was on a call for the whole time when he was gambling, and that number on call belongs to yours! That means the one that was giving him orders was in fact you! Come on, tell me, how did you know the outcomes for each round?!”
Withers: “I don’t know! Someone also told me!”
The team leader: “Who told you? Withers, I don’t care if you were told by someone else or not, what you did already made you an accomplice to the criminal group’s operation. You were committing a crime!”
Withers: “I didn’t!”
Then, he suddenly got closer and said in a low voice, “I had been following a guy, he’s the real mastermind behind this whole thing. Today, I was trying to see if I could follow his orders and actually get all the bets right, and I did! I don’t know how he really did it, it was really unfathomable to me! He didn’t need a phone, nor binoculars or whatever technology, yet he was able to know about everything that went on in that casino!”
The team leader: “You can keep on making stuff up. Do you think I’m stupid? Then, how are you going to explain why you were with the guys from the mafia at the time we arrested you? We investigated them, they are all people with records and were involved in the previous operations at the casino. Why were you with them today? Looks like the casino execs were right with their accusations of you. You really are the mole.”
Withers: “How could I be the mole?”
The team leader: “You used your identity as the FBI to make them cooperate with you to investigate, but in fact, you just got them to give you all the green light so you could win more money. Every day, money is being lost, yet you make no progress. You are really a thief in the disguise of a guard!”
Withers slammed the table and shouted angrily, “I’m not!”
The team leader: “Those mafia members already admitted that they know you, and their confessions on you were the same.”
Withers: “They clearly set me up!”
The team lead: “Alright, since you said you are only investigating the case, then why did your subordinate run away with that 2.56 million?”
Withers’s eyes stared wide open. “Impossible!”
The team lead lifted his eyebrow and said, “He did. After changing the 2.56 million into cash, he turned off his phone and ran. When we went to his home, his passport and ID were all gone.”
Withers fell back down into his chair.
“Impossible! Then how did you guys track down me from his phone? Since he ran, his phone wouldn’t have been left behind.”
The team lead: “Indeed we didn’t get his phone. But, the new team captain that was in charge of this case got a call from the casino, claiming that there would be action, and we arrived early and checked the surveillance, and your subordinate appeared later. Then, we eavesdropped on his phone, and we noticed that it was you that was calling him! During this whole time, you were telling him what to bet on, and every time you were right!”
Withers shouted furiously, “Then where did I find out about the answer?”
The team lead: “So you told your subordinate to use his identity as an FBI agent to make the execs at the casino swap out the dealers. In fact, the new ones that were swapped in were your guys!”
Withers suddenly laughed. It was an inexplicably sad and bitter laugh.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
It was a trap!
In fact, his subordinate didn’t run, but he was dead!(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
His passport and ID card was found and destroyed by the mafia to create the illusion that he escaped.
“You guys will never solve this case, trust me!” Withers looked at the team lead with mockery and said, “This is the devil’s game!”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
