Storyline

Simone makes contact with Ferdinand Hollie, an old informant, who wants to help him capture a pair of Columbian drug dealers who killed a young girl with their crossfire. But Hollie, a drug addict who is HIV-positive, has his own agenda to rob the Columbians. Meanwhile, Russell is paired up with Sgt. Ray Kahlins, a "blow hard" from the federal anti-drug unit. He's more interested in collecting overtime pay than catching a separate pair of drug dealers during a stake out. But Kahlin's brash tactics and disrespect for Simone and his informant Hollie, put both cases at risk. Also, Medavoy and Martinez investigate the murder of a 'Santerina' priest found in a local sewer and try to link a parole officer and a recent parolee to the crime. Written by matt-282
