Can you figure it out in 9 clues?
Security cameras in the museum clearly showed Blake stealing the painting.
The painting in Blake’s apartment was verified by an art expert.
Police identified Blake quickly from the security cameras, but it took them two days to find out where she lived.
They discovered her address by tracing a phone call she made in the middle of the night to her mother, a well-known lawyer.
As soon as they got her address, they called a judge to get a search warrant. Because it was the middle of the night, they had to go to the judge’s house.
The judge had no access to his work computer or files at home so he wrote the warrant out on an ordinary piece of paper.
Police got to Blake’s house at 2:00am. She immediately demanded to see the warrant, which they gave to her.
Police found the painting in the ceiling of a closet in a small bedroom at the back of the apartment.
The police left Blake’s apartment without the warrant.
