"Trouble is the eye and memory aren't always reliable"

Wayne is out on patrol when he spots the white van that was reported stolen. Wayne radios back to inform that he will check it out and Nick instructions Wayne to start the van and he will send Maggie to pick up the patrol car. The owner of the van George Pearson comes into the station to pick up his van and states their are two missing leather jackets. A neighbour who witnessed Wayne checking out the van makes allegations that Wayne is responsible for the missing jackets. PJ interviews the neighbour to establish the facts of what he exactly witnessed and the neighbour believes that it will be a police cover-up to protect the officer. Tom pulls Maggie into his office to ask her about the van's contents. Maggie states that she was just there to pick up the van and there is nothing out of the ordinary. The Boss then speaks to Wayne about what happened and he asks Wayne if he carried anything away from the back of the van. Wayne denies that he has stolen the jackets and Tom informs him that IIS will have to be called in since an allegation has been made. Roz asks Wayne if there is something wrong and Wayne tells her that he is under suspicion of stealing the jackets. Internal Affairs arrives to investigate the theft and they inform Wayne that they have a warrant to search his premises, which they turn up nothing in their search. The nosy neigbour is interviewed by IIS about his eye witness account of the events, during the interview the neighbour also states that Maggie might have also been involved in assisting Wayne with the theft. Wayne is interviewed by the IIS and they establish that Wayne stopped off at the bank to attend to personal business while on duty driving the stolen van back to the station, this story differs from what Wayne told the Boss - that he had come back to the station directly without stopping anywhere. IIS inform Tom that they haven't found anything conclusive and the only evidence they have is from the eye witness and his accounts are patchy at best. They advise that Tom will be notified whether any further action needs to be taken or not. Meanwhile PJ is investigating a burglary at a local shop where the safe has been broken into and the contents stolen, which included some medals. The owner on requests brings a list of employees into PJ so they can checkout their stories. The safe is recovered and the owner wishes to take the contents out, but PJ objects as he wants to nail the thieves and he puts the safe under surveillance. PJ is on night surveillance watching the safe. It is early in the morning and PJ is startled by a noise, it appears that while PJ was meant to be on watch he fell asleep and the thieves sole the safe again. The owner wants to lodge a formal compliant. A report of an explosion at the quarry and Nick and PJ are sent to investigate and discover that the thieves are trying to blow the safe open but were unsuccessful. It turns out that they were also responsible for stealing the jackets and Wayne is in the clear.moreless
