Standing outside his Navigator on East Paces Ferry Road, just down the street from the Cobalt Lounge, Fassett saw Ray Lewis, his big right arm against the chest of Reginald “Derby” Oakley, pulling his friend away from trouble. Leaving the Cobalt moments earlier, the Lewis crowd had exchanged drunken, angry words with a group of young men from Ohio, and Lewis, by Fassett’s description, was trying to avoid a fight. He pulled Oakley away from a challenger; he yelled to another friend and co defendant, Joseph “Shorty” Sweeting, to get in the limousine.

Anne and Rackham escaped the island together, and Bonny became a member of Rackham’s crew. She disguised herself as a man on the ship, and only Rackham and eventually Mary Read were privy to her true sex.

After a half hour, a manager gave the word and the girls fled down an alleyway but not before lining up to punch a time clock. When the raiders were finished combing through the factory, they filled a truck with more than 10,000 counterfeit watch dials (mostly Omega, Rolex, Casio, and Citizen), along with 106 sets of molds. The boss was nowhere to be found, but on his desk were wads of cash and two thick catalogs filled with dozens of sample dials.
