With most people out of the city attending various events around Azeroth - or just getting smashed in Brewfest ale - Friday night should have been quiet, but Stormwind being Stormwind turned out to be anything but.
Shortly after midnight a group or citizens and Watchmen from the 8th Division (the Boots in Blue) was seen outside a closed shop in Old Town, with the Watchmen knocking down the door.
According to sources then the new proprietor of the Pig and Whistle, one Misty Blakemore, had been kidnapped less than an hour earlier from said bar. Associates of Miss Blakemore managed to track her whereabouts to a shop two doors down the street and alerted the watchmen who immediately descended on the building.
With his rather large frame - Superintendent Spires used his shoulder to break down the door at which point the watchmen spilled into the building and found it occupied by the two alleged kidnappers as well as their victim, Miss Blakemore.

After a brief but intense fight both alleged kidnappers found themselves cuffed and restrained and after their statements had been taken by the Watchmen they where escorted to the Stockades, awaiting sentencing. They both claim to be innocent of the charges.
But the story does not end here, there is a bit of a twist. Misty Blakemore was also escorted away by the guards and interrogated as she was already wanted in connection with other crimes.
Who will be found guilty or what, and what the sentences will be remains to be seen, but looks like a win for the boys in blue either way you spin it.
