The chief was still puzzled by all this about the now not kidnapped girl's uncle? All he knew about the man was the background he had read on Stephanie Stroud's personal data. She had an uncle who was a rather rich and powerful businessman out of Washington state. There was nothing about any criminal suspicion. So Dryer was going on merely the hearsay statements of this Katherine Mercer? Why the DA would laugh him out of the office if he even tried to get an arrest warrant on something so flimsy. Not to mention talk about out of jurisdiction, this Mason Stroud lived in another state.
"I honestly think you are certainly jumping to conclusions here. This is the first I've heard of any of this. And you got it from the woman whose house Miss Stroud was driven to while taken? But nothing from Miss Stroud? You didn't even question her on any of what Miss Mercer stated?" he frowned.
"Just release 'em all. This is messed up big time but fortunately it turned out alright, no one killed or even injured. No one pressing charges. We should just count our blessings and move on, Dryer," he made his decision.
"Fair enough. Though we responded to calls from the public about a possible kidnapping, don't see how the woman can now throw a false arrest suit on the department. We were within our jurisdiction and we could bring them in for questioning," Aiden responded.
"How do you know that this young woman's uncle is the problem, wants her gone as you said? Did she tell you this?" he then asked, that he knew of Dryer hadn't even interviewed Miss Stroud at the station.
Aiden was just finishing a conversation on his cell phone, "Alright, sounds good. Goodbye."
He looked then to see who entered the office, "Well, how's it proceeding then? The Rave's manager says he has no interest in pushing any charges. Honestly he probably loves the publicity it's gonna get the place when the papers get ahold of the story. You know, young people wanna be where the excitement is kinda thing."
The rather shaken young people taken care of, next order of business was communicating up the chain of command. That meant O'Quinn.
Though originally Aiden had had plans for nothing more than to head off to bed early this night and try to get a nice long sleep - try being the operative word. He didn't sleep as well as he used to. Probably just part of getting older. But now with an incident at a local night spot he needed to be on duty even if it took all night. So it didn't take more than a couple minutes for the man to respond to the call in.
"Yes, O'Quinn here. What's going on? Got a handle on it? Over..."
The voice on the other end of the call was his superior.
"Dryer, we got an apparent kidnapping....or assault in progress. We've dispatched a squad car to the scene." The dispatcher then gives the address of the Rave and the man repeats it to Dryer.
"According to the individual who called it in a young woman has been forcibly taken from the place and thrown into a truck which took off. We need you to go check on the veracity of all this. It's all we know at the moment. Awaiting more reliable info when our car shows up. Will keep you abreast of anything new."
