Chapter 733. Too Bad He’s Taken (Part Two)
Xu Cheng immediately interrupted. “Don’t. They have already moved the goods.”
Ran Jing and the others were shocked. “How is that possible, how do you know?”
Xu Cheng: “If you don’t believe me, then go check on this car.”
Ran Jing picked up the headset and shouted to the frontline, “Attention Team C on Dongfeng Road, stop a truck with the license plate number 858.”
Team C: “Yes Madam.”
In less than fifteen minutes, the other side replied, “Director Ran, nothing was found in the car.”
Ran Jing frowned: “What was this truck pulling?”
Ran Jing: “Live or dead? Did you check the fish to see if anything was hidden in there?”
“We checked, the fishes are alive and there is nothing hidden in the bodies.”
Xu Cheng heard this and his eyes narrowed; he found a key clue.
Ran Jing looked up at him curiously and asked, “How did you know that they have already transferred the goods?”
Xu Cheng said, “Your team was already exposed when they checked on that surveillance, and the other side is probably communicating in real time. It takes five minutes to get from Jiaoling Road to Dongfeng road based on the speed it was driving at. However, when it disappeared in the blind spot and reappeared in Dongfeng Road, 11 minutes had already passed, indicating that they had transferred the goods within this extra 6 minutes.”
Each of these analyses were very thorough, and Ran Jing took her headset off to listen. She knew that today’s mission failed again, and not only had they alerted the snake, they also showed themselves to be incapable in front of their new colleague.
Ran Jing felt very angry about her group of teammates who couldn’t do the job straight. Of course, she also had a greater responsibility in this, so in fact, she was angry with herself. She was rude to Xu Cheng, but then he was professional and immediately figured out a breaking point that they managed to mess up. In the blink of an eye, they put this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to waste, not to mention that they were basically giving the enemy a reminder to run!
She could get fired if they were to magnify her responsibility in this case.
Because for investigating this large group of smuggling organizations, one slightest error in the operation could mean the entire investigation will go down the drain.
The frontline members dared not to speak and remained very quiet, this was a big responsibility as they looked at each other.
That was when Ran Jing said, “I’m responsible for this and I’ll handle the report. Everyone has been tired over these few days, so just head home early.”
Li Chao did not want to give up. “Director Ran, should we do something about that truck? Track that driver.”
“Forget it, we’ll need to start over for the case.” Ran Jing knew that the current investigation couldn’t go on any longer, and she needed to rethink it before preparing to tackle it again.
However, Xu Cheng turned his back on them and said, “We did alert the snake, but it’s not that we were completely unproductive.”
Li Chao looked at him. “How so?”
“That truck was pulling fish. Have you not thought about where this fish could be delivered to?”
Li Chao: “Shangcheng’s only seafood center and the largest in the province? South Gate food city?”
“Good.” Xu Cheng said, “I guess this case also involves South Gate. Now that you have the next target, you can keep an eye on the South Gate, and pay attention to their seafood products. If they stuff the fish belly with drug powder, then we can also get information on the source of goods.”
Li Chao said immediately, “It’s from the ocean!”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Indeed, we can also check the fishing boats.”
Li Chao nodded, feeling that this case was not completely hopeless.
He turned his head and walked out of the room with the others.
Leaving only Ran Jing, who was looking at Xu Cheng with a deadly stare.
Xu Cheng teased, “Does my mask look good?”
“Not at all.” Ran Jing teased back. “You’re wearing a mask, and it gives me a feeling that I can’t see through you. Why don’t you take off the mask so I can take a look?”
Xu Cheng/ “Are you sure?”
Ran Jing nodded her head.
Xu Cheng took off his mask, revealing his horrific paper-white face. He saw Ran Jing’s pupils contracted, indicating that she was scared for a moment.
Xu Cheng hurriedly put the mask back on, and then turned away. “This case is not difficult, but also not simple.”
Ran Jing regained her thoughts from seeing his face. “You seem like a person I know, with this temperament and confidence, and that shocking analytical ability. There was a moment when I thought you were that friend.”
Xu Cheng turned his head. “He is very handsome, right?”
Ran Jing was surprised. “Why do you ask that?”
Xu Cheng: “I’m afraid that a man who can make a beautiful woman like you remember, won’t look too bad.”
Ran Jing smiled. “Well, not that handsome, but I found that after going around and meeting many colleagues and men in general, I realized I actually like my friend’s type. Too bad, he’s taken.”
Xu Cheng’s body shook a little.
