Jingle Bell Crook – Solution

Who’s the Christmas crook?

Tommy O’Dwyer

How do you know?

Amy opened the alley door and stuck the tape over the latch. “This allowed the robber to get inside the building.”

Harry looked puzzled. “The robber didn’t need to get in. All the suspects were already inside.”

“I’m talking about after the robbery. Santa came back into the basement.”

“Why would he do that? The basement doesn’t lead anywhere except back up to the gymnasium.”

“He did it so that he could change back into his underwear and hit himself on the head. It was Tommy O’Dwyer. There was no attacker. He must have hidden the stolen items somewhere nearby.”

“What about Clark and the oy mot?”

“Look at Tommy’s tattoo. He was standing by the bathroom sink when Clark saw him. Clark saw the tattoo reflected in the mirror. ‘Tommy O.’ Read it backwards and you have it. Oymmot.’

    Pretty easy, at first, I thought it was the man who turned off the lights. But how would he have been changing into santa ? So I thought a bit more and the answer was obvious. Tommy. x)

    I only read the first part. I couldn’t inspect the crime scene and read the rest of the story because I’m using a phone. Hope that gets fixed. Also, I thought it was Tommy too because in the picture, I saw that he was the only one who was fat. Every one didn’t suspect a thing when Santa went up and said Ho Ho Ho,(I inferred that the people that got robbed saw the man as not skinny) so I thought that the robber must be fat enough to fit in the costume, and he’s the only one who is fat in the picture. Also, the boy was looking at the suspects nervously. In the back of his mind, I bet he could infer who did it, but didn’t want to think or say more about it out of fear
