After an important hard drive is stolen from the firm, thesquad is dispatched to Taos, NM. A call originated from there from a "Charlie Zero", stating that the HD would be returned for a fee.
Investigation revealed that Charlie was most likely Charlie Jones, a 28 y/o male grafter. We followed his trail from Taos to Phoenix.
Charlie wasfound dead and several leads indicated that an associate named "Zeke" had the HD. We were unable to arrange a meeting with Zeke but scared him enough to destroy the HD and leave town.
While the drive was not recovered, the data was safe.
