Detective Rage buys a storage locker at an auction. She has officer Jones bring his truck and some extra folding money. She instructs him on how and when to bid with her by twirling her hair. A locker comes up and with some bidding Jones wins the auction. The fellow that lost tries to buy the locker after he gets some more money.
Jones tells him, “No thanks.”
His reply is “You will be sorry.’
Rage takes with her an oil painting, four canes, and two small wooden boxes from the locker. After loading the truck, they start for Rage’s home. A big truck cuts Jones off, so he is no longer following Rage. He calls Rage on the police radio to tell her of the incident and to be careful. Dispatch radios Jones with the information that the truck was just reported stolen. Jones is now three stop lights behind Rage.
Rage has watched a truck following her, even after she takes the long way home. They try to push her jeep off the road, but she fishtails them. There erupts a gun battle with Rage.
Jones gives the truck slowing him down a hard push. The driver flips the truck and it burst into flames.
In the police Lab. they unload Jones’ truck and search the storage locker’s items, finding nothing of real value. They must have only wanted what Rage had with her.
A jeweler says the value of the jewelry in the two boxes is worth $2,500. The green emeralds in one box are huge, but the value is truly little. The oil painting, she has may have a hidden picture covered up. The four canes are wooden and worth little.
