Sheriff Thompson pushed his chair back, hands folded on his stomach. He stared at Ron and Don Dumphreys across from him.
“Either of you want to give an explanation?”
Ron slid the faded newspaper clipping across the desk.
$5000 reward for Andy Warhol painting stolen from Main St Museum
Sheriff Thompson glanced down at the paper and tossed it back at Ron. He was aware of the reward.
“You decided to break into Edna Elderberry’s to steal?”
Don looked up, “You can’t steal what has already been stolen! How do you know it was us?”
Sheriff Thompson shook his head.
“You turned around when Edna called your name! We also found these!” Thompson looked at Ron as he dangled smiley faced keys. "Your wife has already identified them!"
The sheriff continued, “You are going to jail for a reproduction!”
Ron punched Don in the shoulder.
Thompson ordered the deputy to take them away.
When the sheriff arrived home, he went to check the barn before venturing inside to see his wife’s latest shopping spree. As he turned on the lights, he smiled at the large Campbell Soup treasure staring back at him.
