The Missing JewelsMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
Detective Sing arrived at the scene of the robbery of a coastal house to find a man, Mr. Jones, complaining that his jewels had been stolen. Detective Sing arranged to have him taken to the local police station to give a statement. After a quick search of the area, they found the thief not far away (he hadn't had time to escape), but he was refusing to give up the location of the jewels, and the name of his accomplice. Because the thief had been found quickly, Detective Sing ordered a search of the nearby area. The jewels were found buried beneath a beech tree.
Detective Sing arrived at the police station to talk to Mr. Jones, who was complaining that he had been left alone in the interview room for hours. Detective Sing quickly explained that they had caught the thief, and discovered the jewels.
Mr. Jones, agape, asked where they had found the jewels.
Detective Sing explained that they were found buried at the beech.
"But how did you know which tree they were buried under?" asked Mr. Jones.
Detective Sing immediately arrested Mr. Jones as the missing accomplice.
AnswerGiven that Mr. Jones lived at a coastal property, it would be reasonable to assume that when Detective Sing tells him that the jewels were found buried 'at the beech', he meant "at the beach". The fact that he doesn't means that he probably has an idea of what has happened to them.
