Character error 

Upon discovering the embezzled furs, Lt. Tragg tells Sgt. Brice, "Get Robbery Detail." This fur theft, like most others, occurred without the threat of violence, so Tragg should have referred the matter to a detail that handled property crimes.

Factual errors 

The truck driver, Harry Jonson, told Mason and Drake the accident was due to brake failure caused by a cut brake line - then mentioned the truck has air brakes. Air brakes work in reverse of hydraulic brakes; a cut air line will not allow the brakes to release. That truck should not have been rolling, with a broken line.

Revealing mistakes 

When Burger introduces two photo blow-ups of the partially damaged love letters for evidence, the two are quickly shown, but on closer inspection, both are the exact same picture.
