The Case of the Ruined Roses


The case of the ruined roses

"That was a good program on UFO's," said Nina to Max as they walked down the street. "It's amazing that UFO's were reported as early as 1800."

"I know," said Max. "Do you really believe there are such things?" Nina started to answer when they heard a loud scream coming from Mr. Smith's house.

"Come on," shouted Max. They ran into the yard where Mr. Smith was staring at ten rose bushes that had been pulled from the ground.

"Look at that!" he shouted. "Just look at that."

"That's terrible," said Nina. "Who could have done it?"

Mr. Smith (who was the sports teacher) looked angry.

"I had to punish three of my best football players for cutting class. They were pretty mad at me."

"Oh yes," said Nina. "You punished Sam Cartland, Mike Brooks, and Alex Avery."

"And you lost the game!" added Max.

"I'll bet one of them did it to get even," said Nina. "Let's see if we can find the suspect?"

"Well," said Max. "Mr. Smith said the roses were all right when he looked out at nine. But just after ten, he found them pulled up."

"Let's see what our three suspects were doing between 9 and 10 am. Look!" Nina pointed. "There's Alex Avery over at the Dairy Bar."

Alex looked up as they came in. "Hi," he said.

"Hello, yourself," said Max. "We missed seeing you in the football game."

"That was a bummer all right. But I guess Mr. Smith didn't have any choice."

"Where you been all morning?" asked Nina.

"I've been right here since nine." He turned to the girl behind the counter. "Isn't that right, Amy?"

"Uh huh. You helped me carry in that heavy box."

"So you weren't anywhere near Mr. Smith's house?" said Max.

“That’s right," said Alex.

After they left, Nina looked down the street. "That's Sam Cartland's house. Let's see what he's been doing."

"What do you two want," said Sam when he came to the door.

"We wondered what you were doing between nine and ten this morning," said Nina.

"I was right here watching that program on UFO's."

"That was a good program," said Nina. Remember when that guy who said he had been taken by aliens?"

"Yeah," laughed Sam. "But I don’t believe him. Can you believe that people have been reporting UFO'S since 1947?"

After they finished talking to Sam they went to find Mike Brooks who was in the gym.

"Hey Mel" said Max. "We were wondering where you were between 9 and 10 this morning."

"Right here. You can check the log book. Why?"

"Just curious," said Nina with a smile as they went back to the desk. Sure enough, Mike had signed in at five to nine.

This is great," Nina said. "They all have alibis."

"I'm not so sure of that," said Max.

Sorry Wrong Answer.

Clue

"Didn't you tell me that UFO's had been around as far back as 1800?" asked Max.

"Yes," said Nina. Why?"

"Sam Cartland said they had only been reported since 1947."

"Oh," said Nina. "That part about seeing them in 1800 came at the very end of the show.

The case of the ruined roses

How did Max figure it out?

Sam taped the program on UFO's and had almost finished watching it when Max and Nina showed up. He was accurate in discussing it with Nina except for the last part which he hadn't seen yet. He admitted being so angry with Coach Thornton that he pulled up his roses. He apologized to the coach and promised to do extra yard work for him.
