Detective Frederick F. Fredinstein was called in to investigate a rash of stolen kabobs. The investigative team theorized that there might be a Bobsylvanian gang behind it, but couldn't prove it.

The team has been tracking several key members of the gang for weeks, but can't place any of the members at the same place at the same time. The only thing that they know for certain is that all of the members get their sheets cleaned at the same place: Checkers Bobsylvanian Sheet Dry Cleaners.

The team thought that the plans for the kabob heists must be at the cleaners, but when the team served a search warrant, they couldn't find anything out of the ordinary. After all, everyone knows that what a Bobsylvanian likes best, after kabobs of course, is nice, clean sheets.

When Detective Fredinstein came in on the case, the first thing that he did was to meet with the lead investigator, Miss Sissy. She showed him the report on the search of the dry cleaners. The report detailed everything that they didn't find.

"As you can see from the report, Fred," said Miss Sissy, "there was nothing out of the ordinary: hangers, laundry bags, chemicals, detergents, boxes for shirts, a couple of big tubs of water, bill pads, account books, and a bunch of other stuff you'd see in a normal business." She concluded, "There wasn't even an above normal amount of cash on hand. If this were the headquarters of a kabob theft ring, we should have found something."

Fred looked pensive for a moment. "There wasn't even a shish stick to be found, huh?"

Miss Sissy replied directly, "Not even a toothpick."

After looking over the report again and thinking for about a minute, the detective said, "Well, we better take the wagon and a few units over to the cleaners. We'll want to stash them someplace where they won't be seen though. Put a couple of plainclothes out front and have them arrest everyone coming out of the place on suspicion of being involved in the largest stolen kabob ring in history. And make sure that all of their dry cleaning is confiscated."

Miss Sissy looked shocked. "How do you know they're up to something, Fred?"
