The Vault – Short Detective Stories For Kids

Mike was a wealthy man. There were many servants and a maid at his house. Mike lived in his house and left for work in the morning. One day when he returned from work he saw that his vault was empty. All the money inside the vault was missing.

Mike gets very upset seeing the vault empty. He thought, “Only I know the password of the vault, so how can anyone open that vault?” Now he called Detective Dane to find out. The detective was also accompanied by his partner William. The detective investigated that vault very well. During the investigation, he found a nail piece that was long and his suspicion first came upon the maid. Both of them called the maid and said to her, “What is your nail doing near this locker?”

“Forgive me, sir. I don’t know how it got here. But I haven’t stolen anything.” The maid folded her hands and told them both.

Now both of them had a suspect and that was the maid. They had to find out whether the maid had committed the theft or not. They had proof but still, both of them were not convinced by that. Then the detective asked William to investigate further.

After investigating William found another piece of evidence. He told the Detective, “I have found one more piece of proof and I know who the thief is. I can claim that who committed the theft.”

After this, all the servants and maids of the house were called into the room. Everyone entered the room. Then the detective said to Mike, “Mike, now tell me who the real thief is?”

“Yes, I will.” William said, “There is only one servant in this house who only washes the dishes and his name is John. There is also a smell of soap in the locker which is used to wash the dishes in the kitchen. That’s why the thief is John.”

John started running away on hearing this, but the other servants caught him. John began to say, “Forgive me, I didn’t want to steal. That was my compulsion.”

The detective then asked him, “How did you steal, you didn’t know the password?”

“One day, I sneaked into the room and hid under the bed. When the owner was entering the vault’s password, I saw the password. I put the nail near the vault so that the entire suspicion would go to the maid. This way I stole the vault.”

A Dead Body – Bedtime Short Detective Stories For Kids

One day suddenly a security guard found a dead body on the stairs of the City Center Mall. The security guard was horrified when he saw that. Frightened, he immediately called the police. He was very scared and could not even speak properly on the call. He said to the police, “Hello, come here quickly. Somebody’s dead body is here. A corpse is in front of me.” Saying this, he immediately disconnected the phone and sat in a chair nearby.


After some time two police came there and investigated the body. First, they tried to know who was the person. Whose body was lying there?

An ID card was found on the man’s shirt with his name written on it. His name was ‘Mike Williams, an employee of a company. The police then called Mike’s company and took details of his family members.

Now they had to know who killed Mike and who left him here. They first tried to check CCTV. They went to the security room and there they saw on CCTV that a long-haired man completely covered his face and dragged Mike’s corpse. He left the body on the stairs. Now all they had was proof that the person who killed Mike is long-haired.

After knowing all this, the policemen went to Mike’s house. On their way home, they told the sad news to Mike’s family. The family was deeply saddened to hear of Mike’s death.

The police then asked Mike’s family members if they knew anyone with long hair. After inquiring thoroughly, they did not find anyone who was long-haired. In such a situation, the police thought of going to Mike’s office. They then went to Mike’s office. There too, they could not find any person whose hair was long. Now policemen tried to find out about all of Mike’s friends. They asked Mike’s cousins, his friends, relatives, etc. but they could not find any clue or information.

Now they were confused as to how to investigate further. In such a situation, both of them thought that those people would place ‘warning notices’ at different places. Both did the same and put a notice everywhere. Days passed after putting the notice but no news was received.

A few days later, suddenly a call was received from those policemen. The person who was on that phone told the policeman that he knows a person whose notice has been placed everywhere. Both of them got up immediately and went to the person.

The man was a barber who cut people’s hair. As soon as the police reached him, the barber said, “I am a barber and cut people’s hair. One day a person came to me who lives nearby. He was very scared and he told me that he would cut his hair. He loved his hair. Whenever I asked him to cut his hair he would get angry immediately. But that day he came and said to cut the hair. I cut his hair short. He also gave me more money. Seeing all this, I got a little suspicious. Then yesterday when I went to the market, I saw the notice you had put, which I understood by seeing that something was wrong. That’s why I called you here. “

After saying all this, the barber revealed the boy’s address. The policemen went to his house and caught him. After questioning well, that boy told the truth and everything he did. The police ask him why he murdered Mike. He then told that Mike was his friend from whom he had taken $20,000. Mike went to get his money back when he had it. He did not want to return the money to Mike. Then he fights with him and killed him. After killing Mike, he left his body on the mall’s stairs. Now that killer will spend years in prison.
