罪恶有痕 12

 

赵凯峰把上身探出车窗外,极力向前张望,”快了快了,我已经看见大门了。”

开车的刘明天往左右扫了一眼,”这大门怎么修得那么深? 要是外地人来水库办事,能找得着门才怪呢!”

车子最终在水库的大门前停了下来。刘,赵两人下了车。赵凯峰走到铁栅栏门旁, 向里张望。门里除了一栋水库管理处的三层小楼,其余的都是湖水,沙滩和树林,既安静又优美。

“你说, 那辆白色捷达, 真会是在这儿被清洗的吗?”赵凯峰问。

“这种可能最大。因为这儿是本市唯一的自然水体。先进去看看再说。”刘明天答。

“有人吗?” 他接着朝栅栏门里喊了一声。

“找谁啊?”从小楼里走出了一个无精打采的老者。

“你好! 我们是公安局的,来这儿了解点情况。”说着,刘明天向老者出示了证件。老人看是公安,态度马上就积极了起来。他先自我介绍, 说是水库管理处的老闻, 然后就把他们领进接待室。接着又忙着沏茶倒水。被刘明天劝阻后, 老闻才放心地坐下来谈话。

“你们的水库总共有几道大门?” 刘明天直奔主题.

“只有两道。除了你们进来的那道, 南面还有一个门。”

“那个门汽车开得进来吗?”

“开得进来, 不过 …”

老闻犹豫起来。刘, 赵两人急了, “不过什么?”

“我们这两道大门常年都锁着。平时上下班的人都从正门上的那个小门进出。南边那道大门几乎不用。我们这儿很少有车来。”

罪惡有痕 12

 

趙凱峰把上身探出車窗外,極力向前張望,”快了快了,我已經看見大門了。”

開車的劉明天往左右掃了一眼,”這大門怎麼修得那麼深? 要是外地人來水庫辦事,能找得著門才怪呢!”

車子最終在水庫的大門前停了下來。劉,趙兩人下了車。趙凱峰走到鐵柵欄門旁, 向裏張望。門裏除了一棟水庫管理處的叁層小樓,其餘的都是湖水,沙灘和樹林,既安靜又優美。

“你說, 那輛白色捷達, 真會是在這兒被清洗的嗎?”趙凱峰問。

“這種可能最大。因為這兒是本市唯一的自然水體。先進去看看再說。”劉明天答。

“有人嗎?” 他接著朝柵欄門裏喊了一聲。

“找誰啊?”從小樓裏走出了一個無精打采的老者。

“你好! 我們是公安局的,來這兒了解點情況。”說著,劉明天向老者出示了證件。老人看是公安,態度馬上就積極了起來。他先自我介紹, 說是水庫管理處的老聞, 然後就把他們領進接待室。接著又忙著沏茶倒水。被劉明天勸阻後, 老聞才放心地坐下來談話。

“你們的水庫總共有幾道大門?” 劉明天直奔主題.

“只有兩道。除了你們進來的那道, 南面還有一個門。”

“那個門汽車開得進來嗎?”

“開得進來, 不過 …”

老聞猶豫起來。劉, 趙兩人急了, “不過什麼?”

“我們這兩道大門常年都鎖著。平時上下班的人都從正門上的那個小門進出。南邊那道大門幾乎不用。我們這兒很少有車來。”

Traces of Sin  12

Zhao Kaifeng stretched his body out of the car window and looked ahead, “We’re close, I can see the gate already. ”

Liu Mingtian, who’s driving the car, did a quick check around and said,”How could they build the gate up in such a remote place? How could they expect people to find it if they are not from local?

Finally they parked their car in front of the reservoir gate. They both got off the car. Zhao Kaifeng looked inside through the barred gate. Inside the gate, other than a three-story building for administration staff, the rest were just lake, sandy shore and ravine, quiet and beautiful.

“Do you really believe that the white Jetta was washed up here?” Zhao Kaifeng asked.

“This is the only nature water body in this city. Let’s go in first.” Liu Mingtian replied. Then he called out,”Anybody here?”

“Who are you looking for?” An old man walked out listlessly.

“How are you? We’re police. We’re here to collect some information. ” Liu Mingtian introduced himself while showing his identify to the old man. Knowing it’s a visit by the police, the old man’s attitude warmed up. He introduced himself as Lao Wen, who worked in the Administration Office of the reservoir. He then led the two detectives into the office. He intended to make some tea for them, Liu Mingtian kindly stopped him.

“How many gates do you have in total here?” Liu Mingtian got to the point.

“Only two. Other than the one you came through, there’s another gate on the south side.”

“May car drive through the other one?”

“Yes. However …”

Lao Wen hesitated. Liu and Zhao followed up quickly, “however what?”

“Both gates are locked up year round. Employees use the small door at main entrance to get in and out. The south gate is hardly used for anything. We don’t often have visiting cars neither.”
