First arresting officer

Andreas Sigismund Marggaf, a German scientist, was Zincs first arresting officer. He was born on March 3, 1709 and sadly died on August 7, 1782. As well as arresting Zinc he also discovered beet sugar which led to the development of the modern sugar industry.

Zinc was last seen with the family of transition metals. He is also thought to be on the periodic table at the 12 element in the 4th period/row and the first element in the 12th group/column. Zinc is commonly found in the earths crust , trace amounts in the air, water, plants, and animals. (Also in the crimes listed before)

Known associates

Zinc might be caught in kahoots with copper while making pennies or with other ingredients used in soap, shampoo, and sunscreen. Zinc might also work with nitric acid: 32n+ 8 HNO3= 32n (No3)2+2 NO+4 H2O.


Element is in a fairly stable state however if found proceed with caution.
