Cache is not at the posted coordinates; they point to an interesting small circular park you might like to visit after finding the cache. You may see some wild turkeys near the final location, which also is posted as closed between 11 pm and 5 am. Please respect the park hours. Lt. Drebin has always seemed a little high; you'll need either your retrieval monkey or about five feet of TOTT.
Small-to-medium-sized bottle. Pictured here are the original items: a couple of pages from the logbook, a DNF log and some lost marbles.
Sergeant Frank Drebin, Detective Lieutenant Police Squad, was indelibly portrayed by Leslie Nielsen in the "Naked Gun" movies and the "Police Squad!" tv series. Whether umpiring a baseball game or romancing Elvis Presley's former spouse, Drebin is the epitome of restraint and good taste.
MEMORABLE FRANK DREBIN QUOTES:
Det. Frank Drebin: [voice-over] I'd just come from the stockyards. We'd gotten reports that hundreds of cows had been senselessly slaughtered in the area, but I couldn't find any evidence. I stopped off for a hamburger and checked in with headquarters.
It's true what they say: Cops and women don't mix. It's like eating a spoonful of Drano; sure, it'll clean you out, but it'll leave you hollow inside.
Next thing you know, it's fourth and fifteen and you're looking at a full-court press.
Frank: It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.
Frank: No, the worst.
I promise you; whatever scum did this, not one man on this force will rest one minute until he's behind bars. Now, let's grab a bite to eat.
Ed: [after Ludwig has been hit with a poison dart, fallen off a building, been run over by both a car and a steam roller and been trampled by a marching band] Oh, Frank! It's horrible. It's so horrible!
Frank: [comforts Ed] I know...
Ed: My father went the same way...
The truth hurts, doesn't it, Hapsburg? Oh sure, maybe not as much as landing on a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts!
Lt. Frank Drebin: Miss, I'm Lt. Frank Drebin, and this is Captain Ed Hocken, Police Squad.
Female Shop Assistant: Is this some kind of bust?
Lt. Frank Drebin: Well... it's very impressive, yes, but we need to ask you a few questions.
Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.
While these are generically known as "double puzzles," you will likely recognize it as a "Jumble," a perennial accompaniment to newspapers and coffee. On the off chance that you don't know how to work this out, rearrange the jumbled letters into recognizable anagrams in the adjoining boxes. These anagrams are all items and situations you might encounter in a crime story. Then rearrange the circled letters into a phrase that completes the puzzle appropriately.
Use the alphanumeric table to convert each letter of the answer to an integer. Add all the integers from the first two words of the answer to produce key number A. Add all the integers from the third word of the answer to produce key number B.
