He had every exit from the town under heavy guard. Each of the officers stationed there had been ordered to check every person and travelling vehicle regardless of age and gender. He would capture his target, and he would continue to tighten his net until Strife had been found and arrested. It was a thought that made Rufus inwardly smirk smugly. Strife's ass would be his, and his position as Chief as Police cemented at that moment. Then everything would be set.
Rufus had, for once, taken the hands on approach for this case and had begun knocking door to door seeking information. Every house had been searched thoroughly by the officers accompanying him, but no information regarding Strife's whereabouts had been found.
Stepping up to the front door of the next house on the list, Rufus stood one step back as he waited for the officer next to him to knock on the door. "We'll move over to the other side of the street oOnce we're finished with this house." He murmured to the officers surrounding him. They'd searched over half of this backwater town, and had yet to turn up anything.
He'd find something soon though, and when he did, Strife would be his.
