‘Robbery of the Сentury’ - the solution

That was an easy Sherlock Holmes mystery to start with! The readers of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper did not have many problems to solve it.

This was what happened:

'Three solid gentlemen were mess up with robbery of police chief. Loot was taken only by one of them. The whole event was observed by at least two dozen of other gentlemen.'

And the question was: what should Mrs. Hudson take a look at? Please, explain what has happened.

The answer: Mrs. Hudson was reading … ‘Mahjong News’. The article was about a mahjong hand. Inspector Lestrade declared a Kong which was robbed by all three other players. Only one could win under MCR Rules. That took place at the MCR London Championship with dozens of spectators.
