The Case of the Missing Booty

The pirates that hijacked the hero crew of the hero ship Maersk Alabama last month took $30,000 from the ship's safe. Now two of the pirates are dead, and the third is waiting to stand trial in NYC. So, uh, where's that cash?

We dare not even speak the thought that America's heroes may have swiped it!

But sources say the SEALs, along with the members of the international anti-piracy Combined Task Force 151, and the crew of Maersk Alabama are being questioned over the missing cash.

Hero captain Richard Phillips has already sold the movie rights to his story. He seems pretty money-hungry. Has anybody checked his pockets? Has anyone contacted the Hardy Boys?
