Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 183
The Brigade and other Production Teams were connected together, both located in the southern part of the village. The area was not small. Except for a few warehouses littered here and there, there was no one present at all. At night, since everyone would usually turn in to sleep, it was even more silent there.
However, Liu Chunhe was worried that Lin Lan would deposit the money in the Credit Union Department. This woman had been to the Commune for sure; otherwise, why was he unable to find anything despite going through the house numerous times?
Because of the rain, the dogs in the village also hid lazily in their kennels to sleep. In addition, Liu Chunhe was a villager and his footsteps were familiar to the mutts, so none of the dogs bothered to bark.
This was also why people would normally partner with an insider when it came to stealing objects. Since it was someone familiar, the dogs in the village wouldn’t find it odd. Therefore, they wouldn’t bark indiscriminately either.
If a stranger entered the village in the middle of the night, the dogs would easily start barking since the footsteps would be unfamiliar to them.
They entered the village and soon reached the Brigade.
“Brother Zhao, that’s it!” Liu Chunhe pointed to Lin Lan’s small courtyard despite not being able to see much due to the darkness.
Zhao Jianshe felt a burst of heat in his heart— 1,500 Yuan!
“Brothers, hurry up!”
When they arrived at the gate of the small courtyard, a small man suddenly said, “Brother Zhao, there are so many people in their family; what if someone wakes up?”
They intended to steal the money, but if someone were to discover that they were here, it would become robbery instead.
Stealing and robbery were rather different in that sense.
Zhao Jianshe scolded in a low voice, “Liu Chunhe came here so many times when the house was empty during the day, but I guess we’ll have to make do.”
There were many children in the countryside and they ran around all day. Even if the food was harvested, children would flock around here and there every day. That was what made it hard to take action in broad daylight.
Besides, strangers constantly enter the village during the day. With large goals but so many people around, there was no chance to take any action at all.
The key point was that the village would sometimes have patrols guarding diligently at night, starting from the third watch until the fourth watch. Since the women had to get up by the second watch, there was no way it was possible to steal anything by then.
But in the past few days, the grains were given out and it also rained quite a bit, so there was no one on patrolling duty on certain nights. Otherwise, the group of robbers wouldn’t have waited this long to try and obtain the money prize they longed for.
Besides, he was afraid that Liu Chunhe would take the entire sum all alone.
Zhao Jianshe and several other members formed a group. They often sneaked in and out of factories to steal things in the city, but they also frequently ventured towards a certain Brigade to steal some items there as well.
But 1,500 Yuan was a hefty sum— it was more than enough to be a devil, tempting him to breach the laws for his greed.
“Shorty and Liu chunhe will be on guard, Skinny and I will go in,” Zhao Jianshe said and tentatively pushed the door open, which was found to be locked from the inside.
The one that was called Skinny was rather tal. Hence, he was already leaning by the wall, wanting to test its sturdiness to see if he should climb it.
