“Pukana” opened with a professional thief breaking into a home. He unlocks a guarded security safe, but is caught by surprise & shot to death on the spot. It is Christmas eve & Danno is called to a crime scene as he & his daughter are cleaning up the beach. The professional thief was dumped in the trunk of a car that sits in a junk yard. Chin Ho tells Danno & Steve that the cars are shipped to China.
Kono tells Chin Ho & Catherine that she is tracking Adam to Seattle. He disappeared from China & went on the run, but didn't tell Kono anything. The dead man is a burglar who had robbed numerous homes where no one could catch him. He was killed by a special bullet that cannot be traced.
Victor Dobbs is the burglar who was found killed. He targeted only homes with jewelry & diamonds. There was no DNA match on him before, but that is how they traced his finger prints to all the other burglaries. Steve & Danno go to Victor's home right as a man breaks into it. His name is Tim Sapoli who planned the burglaries. He was Dobb's partner in crime.
Tim claims that he didn't kill Dobb's. They were supposed to meet after the last burglary, but Dobb's never showed up. “Five-0” finds out that the bullet was shot from a gun that was discontinued over 6 years ago. Chin Ho & Catherine go to the houses that were targeted by Dobb's. Sapoli installs new cable or internet hook ups into those homes. He knows each security system & how to break inside.
Chin Ho visits the home of a male who is suspicious looking. He gets scared & knocks out Chin Ho with a bar. He drags him down into the basement. Can “Five-0” find Chin Ho before he is killed? How did the killer know his home was going to be burglarized by Dobb's?
