One of the items he claims was stolen wasn't mentioned during the case. Andy gets suspicious and asks for a list of items that were stolen.

The unmentioned item was on the list which meant that the crook would be the only one who would know. They trip up the real crook and Bee becomes a hero to the rest of the jurors.
