Whodunit Part 4: Going Shopping (Posted on 2004-09-09) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Deciding to take a lunch break and go over to a local shop at noon, Bill Bonche stumbles upon one of the suspects, walking into the store at the same time as he was! So, he decided to take the opportunity to ask him a few key questions. After the questioning was done, he saw another suspect pull into the parking lot five minutes after the first! So he repeated the procedure. Amazingly, he ended up seeing all of the five suspects come to the store, and all of them five minutes after the previous suspect.

After watching them look around the store (and not buying anything, he noted), they began to leave promptly at 1:30, and again as if on cue, they left in ten-minute intervals. As they were leaving, Bonche asked them to report promptly to the site of the robbery, 17th Ave. S., for he was ready to reveal the culprit!

From the information provided, find out the time each suspect arrived, the color shirt that they were wearing (one was wearing a gray shirt), the amount of money each brought, and the time that each left.

  1. The first to arrive was the last to leave and the last to arrive was the first to leave.

  2. The suspect with the white shirt came 10 minutes after the suspect who brought $300, who came 5 minutes after the suspect who left last.

  3. One suspect stayed at the store for five minutes less than an hour and a half; another stayed for two hours less ten minutes.

  4. The suspect with the black shirt arrived earlier than both the men that brought the most money. He did not arrive first, however, and he did not have the smallest amount of money.

  5. The suspect that brought $340 came 15 minutes before the suspect that brought $360.

  6. The suspect with the red shirt came 5 minutes after the blue-shirted suspect.

  7. Each man carried only twenty-dollar bills, in different quantities between 15 and 19.
