HI! MESSAGE has a CODE that goes with the LOCK OVERRIDE.
“Vlad is in Gstaad for the next month so he won’t show up. The sapphire is housed in the warehouse below the Palazzo – the entrance is the barred doors in the alleyway. You’ll need an anti-thermal suit for this job. If you’ve lost yours, Fausto at Club Micio in Campo San Polo is the only one who has any left. Be forewarned, he’s gone straight and isn’t dealing in this business any longer so you’ll need to date one of the dancers since Fausto uses the old fabric for his dancer’s costumes. But I doubt that’ll be any problem for you. Use the attached lock override to break the combination for the entry to the warehouse and sapphire container. The lock override will show you the order in which to push the buttons of the electric keypad. Push them in the following sequence. The warehouse is monitored by robotic sentries. There are four power circuits you’ll need to find and overload to temporarily shut the power off that feeds the alarm system protecting the sapphire. The sapphire is in the center of the warehouse.”
