1 Inspector Clouseau And The Gold Mine Mystery By: Ido Amiel It was a hot Summer day in the U.S when it was time for Inspector Clouseau to go on his holiday. This year he decided to visit his friend, Nana, in Ghana. Inspector Clouseau wanted to see the gold mines where Nana worked. It was a long flight until he reached Takoradi, Ghana. Nana found him when he gets out of the luggage claim. "Hi, how are you? We haven't met since we were in college", "Yes, it was a long time". "Let's go to my house and have something to eat before we go to the mine". On the way to Nana's house Inspector Clouseau told Nana that he didn't want to investigate through his holiday so he came to Ghana. They put his luggage at Nana's house and had some breakfast. During breakfast they brought up some memories about their fun times in college and around eleven AM they got into Nana's truck and drove to the mine. Finally at mid-day when the sun was at the middle of the clear blue sky, they arrived at the gold mine, where Nana worked as the administrator. So he decided to give Inspector Clouseau a short tour deep inside the mine. Someone has stolen the gold from the bus", they heard someone shout. Everyone stopped and looked around. Nana looked at Inspector Clouseau and they both understood that this vacation is not going to be as planned. Inspector Clouseau took out his notebook and pen and started looking around for clues. First he met the lady at the office. "Hello, what s your name?" "My name is Gina, I like your shoes". "Did you see anything that happened when the gold was stolen", Inspector Clouseau asked the lady. "What, how would I see anything. It's not like I've been doing anything except for siting in this small, uncomfortable chair". "What were you doing? "I was fixing my nails; they were ugly so I fixed them. Your nails need fixing". "Bye, thank you for your time". Inspector Clouseau wondered if she had anything to do with the gold being stolen. She didn't answer his questions. He wrote in his notebook what

2 he suspected her. He kept looking for clues. He looked around like he knew what he was doing, when he didn't even know what he was looking for. He walked out of her office and bumped into one of the miners, a tall guy, big muscles, and mean face. "Hi, can I ask you some questions?" "What do you want?" The big worker answered like he didn't want to answer Inspector Clouseau. "What do you know about the gold being stolen?" "I don't know anything; I was digging for that gold that was stolen". Inspector Clouseau writes something suspicious about the miner. He then meets the bus driver and checks if he knows anything. "Hi, do you care to answer some questions? "What?" "Did you hear or see anything going on next to your bus?" "No, I was eating lunch with Gina when we both heard the shouting". "Well thank you for your time". He wrote down that he wasn't near the bus full of gold when it happened. Inspector Clouseau thought to himself, how come no one knows anything, especially the guards who are highly trained. When he kept looking around, the manager came to him and explained that he saw that at the time the gold was stolen he was looking from his office window and saw that the shadow of the bus was just above a hole in the ground. Inspector Clouseau wrote the comment in his notebook and decided to go and check for the hole. He finds his first clue; it is a trail of gold that must have been dropped by accident when the thief left. It was on the way to the bus and it lead to the hole that the manager was talking about. He looks down and picks up the heavy metal that was covering it. He looks inside. It is pitch dark and the only thing he can see is a ladder leading inside the hole. I wonder how deep it is. He bends down and says a word. He heard his own echo, clear and loud. It seemed like it was abandoned and no one was ever there. He takes one step down, two steps down, then gets scared so he quickly gets up and goes to ask someone for a flashlight. The big worker told him that he should have brought his own one so next time if he doesn't bring it it's his fault. He gets back to the hole and turns on the flashlight. Looks down and sees that there are only four steps to go down. He is stil scared to go down. After thirty seconds he gets to the ground and instinctively starts walking through a broken wall that leads to who-knows-where. Dripping. The hole was filled with water that sprayed from the pipes from above. He wrote that the water was leaking in his notebook. "Maybe when I get up to the mine I will find the

3 janitor to help around and understand where this long trail leads to. I wonder why it is leaking so much..." He noted to himself. Inspector Clouseau goes back up and searches for the janitor. He starts with the lady. She told him that she doesn't know anything because, once again, all she does is sit around doing nothing. Next he checks with the manager. How am I supposed to know, I have to take care of other things". Inspector Clouseau wonders what other things the manager needs to 'take care' of. He soon looks up, and spots a man wearing a torn up, old grey jacket, with boring baggy pants. He quickly ran to him and told him that he needed help going inside the hole. The janitor walked as if he didn't care, and involuntary lead the inspector to the hole. They started going further and further into the long, drafty tunnel. The janitor stopped unexpectedly, as they reached another metal (heavy lid) and tried pushing it up. It was way too heavy, so they decided to go back to the mine and figure another way to get up there. The next day, Inspector Clouseau and the janitor went back to the hole and this time they brought a pick-axe, in order to break the metal. When they got to the hole the janitor tried slamming the metal with the pick-axe, but it didn't help. The metal lid left only a mere amount of scratches on it. Probably someone sealed it with some special kind of metal. Suddenly something caught their attention. It was people chattering. Inspector Clouseau could not understand what they were saying because the metal lid blocked the sound. "Now I know that the lid is heavy, and cost a lot of money. Why would someone invest in such a thing?" He wondered to himself. Inspector Clouseau asked the janitor if he has a map of the mine. As expected, the answer was no. These people are so unprepared to do this. Of course someone stole gold. He rolled his eyes. They got back to the mine and Inspector Clouseau started searching for more clues. This went on for approximately 2 hours, and it tired the inspector. He decided to give himself a break from a hard day of clue searching, and go to his friend s house to rest for the next day. In the morning they drove back to the mine and Inspector Clouseau started his search. He really hoped to find the thief so that he will be able to at least enjoy a day in Ghana with his friend. Searching around, Inspector Clouseau went to the other side of the building to the back door where originally there was supposed to be a guard, but the guard was lying on the side dead. As fast as he could, Inspector Clouseau ran to call the manager, yet he was nowhere to be found. Inspector Clouseau told his friend to call the doctors, and send backup. Inspector Clouseau found out that the guard was killed with a knife, due to the marks on his chest. The guard s stomach was cut deeply, so he died instantly. "That is why no one heard the sound when he was murdered." He remembered something. The manager wasn't there. The murder was committed, yet still no manager. The janitor came back to the inspector to show him a map of the mine. With no delay, they went to the hole and started jogging to the other lid. "The map indicates that it is exactly

4 behind the secretary s room." The inspector notified the janitor. Based on that information, they decided to go to the secretaries room and see if there is a way to get to the other side if the lid. Inspector Clouseau went to the safe across the room and pulled it out. Although there was a covered hole in the back behind the safe, he believed he saw nothing suspicious. "I guess it isn't here", he says to the janitor. The janitor moved him over, annoyingly, and grabbed a wooden stick, banged it on the hole and it cracked. He tried looking through and saw people talking. He listened carefully. "How did you know about the hole? No answer. Inspector Clouseau noted that it doesn't seem right that he knew exactly where the hole was and that he didn't answer his question. Inspector Clouseau calls two guards to help them break the wall. The guards arrived and they started breaking the wall. After an hour the guards broke some of the wall. It was enough for them to fit through so they went in. They found some bags in a stack. They opened one and they found the gold. Both of the guards started taking the bags of gold to where all the gold is safe. They were lucky it was only from one bus. Inspector Clouseau looked at his notes and started laughing. Then the manager told him how annoying his stupid French accent was. So instead of listening, Inspector Clouseau kept on laughing and now as loud as he could. The manager asked questions about what happened. "Nothing happened. Call everyone to the main office". When Inspector Clouseau entered the office five people were sitting there. The lady secretary, the bus driver, the miner, the manager and the janitor. "From the beginning I knew who did it but I wanted to collect more clues. You the secretary, your answers were suspicious when you said you saw nothing but the hole was behind your computer. You the miner, I suspected you from the time you didn't want to give me your flashlight for my investigation. You the janitor, when you exactly knew where to break the wall. You the bus driver, when you said you didn't hear anything at the bus. And you the manager, I suspected it could not be you because you told me you saw the shadow of the bus covered the thief hole when you looked at it from your office window". "But it was mid-day, I know because I was eating my sandwich with the bus driver and there could not be a shadow". The lady said. "A-huh!, exactly what I wanted to say". Said Inspector Clouseau, confused from the new development. "I knew that there could not be a shadow at mid-day! Arrest him, he is the thief." "Thank you very much, I am done here". Everyone clapped for him and said thank you. The next day he decided he will leave and go back to the U.S. He didn't want to do another investigation. While he was on the ship someone called him. Diamonds were

5 stolen from an office in Dakar, Senegal. He asked when the next ship was so he could get there as fast as he could. A new investigation has just began.
