When Laura received a phone call from an anonymous caller in a panic Laura and the 2nd Precinct were thrust into an case which took family drama to a whole new level. With a little help from Laura’s kid sister Lucy, the team was able to take down a major drug kingpin – Jimmy Chung.

Upon his arrest, Jimmy vowed to get revenge – with Laura catching his attention for her role in bringing him to justice.
