Jensen stood staring at the case map. Had he finally got him? The elusive Antonio Monty that had been harassing his family for months, almost a whole year, had landed in Sunset Valley recently. According to his sources at Sunset Valley PD he was taking a limo to Newcrest.
“Traveling in the lap of luxury while harassing my family huh?” Jensen grumbled,
He gathered up his things and headed home. Jensen wanted to talk to his wife about the arrest before it happened. Plum, he didn’t even know when it was going to happen but he wanted her to be prepared.
When Jensen got home he found Celine, still in her work clothes, in the dining room cleaning up from dinner.
“Hey babe can we talk a minute?”
“Yea about what?” Celine said absentmindedly,
Jensen gently grabbed Celine’s hand and pulled her to the table,
“This is serious...this is about Antonio Monty…”
“I told you not to worry about him! He’s just some guy across the ocean that is threatening us. What could he possibly do?”
“Evidently a lot. He just recently arrived in Sunset Valley and my sources over there said he is currently taking a limo to Newcrest. Now I don’t know about you but what other reason does a rich bachelor have for traveling to our sweet little town?”
Celine slid down a little in her chair,
“Yes and I need you and the kids to stay home until I take him down. Don’t answer the door or anything, okay?”
“Well how long will that be!?”
“I honestly don’t know...from here to Sunset Valley is about 7 hours, then we have to track him down but if he is stupid enough he will fall right into our hands because he will try to contact you or one of the people he has watching us and then we’ll get him.”
Almost a week had past til Antonio Monty showed his face. As suspected he tried to contact Tony, the man who was in charge of watching the whole Belle family and keeping the operation in Newcrest under control. Immediately the crew at the Newcrest PD tacked up a random reason to bring him in, anything to figure out where Monty was.
It honestly didn’t take that long, once Jensen struck a deal with him he gave up Monty’s location faster than ever. According to Tony, Monty was enjoying a nice day at the park enjoying the fresh air. Talk about crawling under his skin. This guy didn’t even know what he had put Jensen’s family through.
After the interrogation was over Jensen headed to the Chief to get the go ahead to head down there and pick him up. It was time to end this.
It wasn’t very hard to find Monty. He was sitting at a picnic table with a giant spread of food in front of him plus guards who were trying to act like civilians. For the guards it wasn’t working out very well because they all stuck out like a sore thumb.
Jensen marched up to the table and slammed his fist down. Monty jumped and looked up then a smug smile grew on his face.
“Well hello there Jensen Belle. Nice to finally make your acquaintance.”
“You’re under arrest for blackmail and extortion, Antonio Monty!”
Jensen grabbed him roughly by the arms and yanked him up. The team he brought with him blocked the guards from doing anything.
Jensen pulled out his handcuffs and dangled them in front of Antonio’s face,
“How does it feel to be getting arrested? How does it feel to know that your plan has failed?”
“Bah! I’ll get out of this and then your family will pay even more for what you’ve done!” Monty said while looking away from the cuffs.
After returning to the station Jensen didn’t give anyone time to question him or what he was doing. It was time to interrogate this plum and figure out what he had on his family.
Jensen slammed his hand down on the interrogation table and glared at Antonio Monty,
“What do you have on my family?!”
He jumped back a little in shock and then that is when the tough facade fell,
“What do you mean nothing?! You’ve been threatening my family for almost a year! I don’t care what you say you’ll still be going to jail for a very long time for what you’ve done. I have emails, and photographic evidence of what you’ve done to my family!”
“Just, just listen to me!”
Jensen leaned back in his chair and raised an eyebrow,
“Fine I’m listening.”
Monty let out a long sigh and lowered his head,
“I really don’t have anything on your family...see in Monte Vista things haven’t been good for my family. I’m basically...well I AM broke. I’m almost 1,000,000 simoleons in debt and I practically had sell an arm and a leg to get here. I made some bad investments and it’s cost me my family fortune.”
Jensen scoffed and threw his arms in the air,
“So you’re telling me that you have nothing on us and you were trying to extort money out of fear?”
“Yes! When I was going through our family's valuables, which are in a giant safe, I came across a letter penned to Richard Belle, Violet Belles father! It was talking about how if Richard didn’t continue to give my great great great grandfather money he would tell everyone about the affair he was having and how he was extorting money from the company. When I found that out I thought “Hey maybe I can track down the Belles and do the exact thing to them!” I know it sounds stupid but it was all I could do! I knew you guys lived overseas and when I figured out how well your family's legacy was doing I couldn’t help myself! I just really needed the money and felt like being a mysterious villain would automatically make you guys give in…”
Jensen was in shock. This man, the man who he had been worried about all this time, was practically a nobody. He had nothing on his family, no reason to bother them, except to try and extort money.
“You know you’re a real piece of work Monty. Now about the people you have watching us. You’re going to call them off okay, because you’re going to be in jail for a very very long time.”
“I can’t! They have a contract that I’ve paid off for a couple more months and then the agency will call them back. All I can tell them to do is take the rest of the time they have as a vacation!”
“Well that’s exactly what you’re going to do. Since we’re done here it’s time to put you in the cage, and believe me when I tell you I will make sure you go to the worst prison on this side of the world and you will rot there until you die.”
As Jensen was leading Antonio Monty, the bane of his family’s existence, into his cell he couldn’t help but wonder. Would this happen again some day? Would someone send a threatening email to his family and want more money? Or will the Belles be able to live in peace for the rest of their existence?
With a straight face he walked away from the cell that was holding the man that started all of this and headed home, because now, now it is all over.
