Hinterval #3

Each HINTerval is a set of three cryptic clues you’ll need to figure out to solve a fictional crime. The clues are pretty tricky, so you’ll probably need to do some investigating and come back with your answer.

A new HINTerval is published once a day, every day.

You need to work out a specific time of day, entered in format HH:MM e.g. 12:15

Clue 1

There’s been a robbery, but what time did it happen?

The hour could take you to Charing Cross,

And swiftly too – a matter of minutes in the city of the future.

After that,  I’ll do as you command,

Though the middle management for United might be scored out of this,

All in all, an Elmore short might give you a clue, although it is a little early in the day.

You should be looking for a number, a positive integer to be precise

Clue 2

How much money was taken?

It was so close to a nice round number,

hundreds upon hundreds,

Enough to learn that sweet heart of yours,

Then increment, perhaps to a Manhattan level.

You’re looking for a famous celebrity, historical figure or fictional character

Clue 3

Who did it?

We’re looking at a real colorful cat for this one,

He wasn’t let out until the 1960s, who knew?

His marvelous brother was seen a bit more recently though.
