After a lengthy investigation I believe I have tracked the Stainless Steel Rat to his current con in the Beta Cygnus system. Latest reports place him on Beta Cygnus X where he is no doubt preparing for another of his nefarious crimes. I have contacted the local police and am traveling to the planet to personally oversee his capture with a Special Corps team.I have no doubt that the rat will be safely in our custody within the next 72 hours!
Local law enforcement have managed to retrieve the following image from the remains of the police robot that he criminally destroyed by dropping a safe on in his escape on Beta Cygnus III:
Note the self satisfied and smug expression. This criminal has eluded capture for far too long!
