I Hid The Truth From The Police And They Came After Me

I Hid The Truth From The Police And They Came After Me

Hi, I’m Lewis, and this is the story of how
I helped the police catch some serial robbers. So, it all started when my folks took away
my Xbox and grounded me for 3 weeks. I wasn’t allowed to play video games or hang
out with friends. They expected me to study non-stop because
I was failing almost everything at school, except maybe English. And, as if on purpose, they did it literally
right before the new Assassin’s Creed game was released. It was a bummer but nothing could have stopped
me from my favorite thing in the world. So, naturally, I turned to my best buddy,
Stanley, for help. And as always he didn’t disappoint. Not only did he have the game, but he was
also sick, so his parents let him stay at home for a couple of days. Everything was aligning perfectly. Or so I thought. So, that day I rode my bike to Stanley’s house. I was in a hurry anticipating some high-grade
game time when all of a sudden I heard gunshots and screaming. I saw several people running out of a pawn
shop that was right in front of me. Luckily for me, there was a dumpster nearby
where I could hide. From there I could see them better. They looked like typical robbers with face
masks, guns, and everything. They were trying to keep money inside of their
bags, but some of it fell on the ground anyway. They were obviously panicking and I could
strongly relate to that. I barely even noticed the car they were currently
getting into. I couldn’t see it clearly from my spot, so
I fished out my phone and tried to film them. The robbers had almost left when I was finally
able to capture their car. It was just a 15-second video but I hoped
it would at least give a decent view of the car. After that, I went straight to Stanley’s house. I wasn’t sure if the robbers noticed me or
not but I wasn’t risking it. I told him everything and showed him the video. It was good enough to see the car plate number. We had completely forgotten about the game,
we talked for hours and still couldn’t decide if we should tell somebody about it or not. Finally, we decided that there were probably
surveillance cameras around and police could do without me or my recording. We also didn’t want our parents to find out
and go berserk about the whole thing. Three weeks went by and my grounding ended
but it was just the start of my suffering. The robbery seemed to be the only thing people
were talking about. Wherever I went I heard something new about
it and, every time, it made me feel like a complete jerk. The police still didn’t have any leads and
asked for witnesses to come forward with any information. The pawn shop’s owner, Mr. Stevenson, was
shot, and his wife had a heart attack. Both of them were still in the hospital. They also said that this wasn’t the first
robbery and the police had been after them for several months already. After a long battle with my conscience, I
finally decided that I needed to tell the police about the video and the car. The only catch was to figure out how to do
that without getting in some serious trouble. So, as always, I went to my most trusted adviser,
Stanley. And this time my buddy didn’t let me down
either. So, the plan was to send the video to the
police from a library computer. They would know it was done by someone using
a school account, but not who did it. Then the problem would be solved, robbers
would be in prison, and I would be the nameless hero of the day. So, I went to the library and started googling
which e-mail account I could use to send the video. At that moment I felt the spooky presence
of our school librarian, Mrs. Mullins. When she asked me what I was researching,
my mind went blank. I didn’t come up with a proper lie beforehand,
so I said the only thing I could think about – the pawn shop’s robbery. That was a huge mistake because then she bombarded
me with questions. I was panicking and it probably showed because
she asked me if I was alright. “It’s just so horrible what happened, y’know? The robbery! Poor Mr. Stevenson and his wife! Awful, it’s just so awful. It makes me so scared that they haven’t caught
robbers yet. What if they robbed the school, huh? Or the library? Have you thought about that possibility? Knowledge is power, right? And robbers … they want it?”” I couldn’t stop talking about nonsense to
save my life. I was just saying random stuff, hoping she
would believe me and leave me alone. I was sure she didn’t, but she left me to
do my “”research”” anyway So, I quickly drafted the letter, attached
the video, and signed it “”Anonymous.”” Then I snuck out of the library to avoid another
interrogation and went home. Only, once I got there I remembered I didn’t
close the Word file with the draft of the letter in it. Now anyone could see it! The plan was perfect! How could I have messed it up so badly? But it was too late to change anything. The library was closed and now I had to wait
until Monday. On Monday the police were at the school and
when classes ended I was sent to the principal’s office. My parents were there and they didn’t look
very happy with me. I was ready to say my last goodbyes to my
beloved Xbox and accept my eternity of suffering without it. It turned out that the police had not only
tracked down the school, but they also checked everyone who used the library computers that
day and found out I was using the one with the open draft letter in it. They said I wasn’t in any trouble and they
just wanted to thank me for doing the right thing. Well, I wasn’t in any trouble with the police. Like I cared. I was in trouble with my mom! I was afraid that she was gonna kill me slowly
and painfully or worse she was gonna ground me for the rest of the year like she promised
she would. But instead, she said that she was very proud
of me for being so brave and selfless. Though at home she told me she would definitely
ground me anyway, if only Mrs. Mullins didn’t talk her out of it. So, in the end, the problem was solved, robbers
were in prison, and nobody was grounded that day. Well, I hope you guys liked my story. I was twelve at the time, so please don’t
judge my intelligence, okay? What would you do in my place? Tell me about it in the comments. Also, like and subscribe to the channel! They said I have to tell you to do that, so
