Chris Faithful and the Drug Squad's work is side-tracked when Mickey passes Chris on to a new supplier. He's more cautious than Mickey but the squad's efforts provide an access to a large shipment coming into the country.

Wallace convinces the Federal Police to form a joint task force and work alongside the Major Crime Squad to target the drug importation while not jeopardising the Major's agg burg investigation.

A seemingly unrelated break-in at an elderly couple's home yields forensic evidence that links the crime to the aggravated burglaries. The continued examination of the soil samples from the safe house results in Goose making a break-thru, determining a WWII munitions factory as the likely source.
