September 20th 9:30 PM
Reporter:Sgt.Neil Carlsen

We received a report of a suspicious individual skulking around the sewers in the outskirts of Raccoon City. I searched the area and located the individual, but he ran away before I was able to question him.

I recovered the following items:

*A small amount of C4 plastic explosive.
*An electronic detonator.
*9X19 parabellum rounds.
*Infrared scope [broken].

End of report.

Original Japanese script


This file alludes to the G-Virus Seizure Operation that the Umbrella Security Service's "U.S.S. Alpha Team" took part of, under agent HUNK's command. The timing is some time before Police Chief Brian Irons received word that Dr. William Birkin had been assassinated and that the t-Virus had been leaked into Raccoon City. It can be assumed, therefore, that Sergeant Carlsen interrupted the U.S.S.' operation in the sewers, or that he interrupted a pre-mission event - to search for a way into Birkin's lab, for example.
