King's Oak may seem like a nice idealic village, with your archetypical bad guy, but scratch at the surface to reveal the crime capital within. There's residents in King's Oak who haven't committed a crime at some point and the Police don't fare much better. Three of their officers have broken the law as well! Here we take a look at the criminals and what they've done.

Max Samson: In the very first episode of Mark Three Mr. Samson murdered his mistress, Jenny Roberts, and buried her within the Crossroads groups. He then ordered Joe Winter and his son, Ryan, to break into Lady Alice Fox's home and steal some paintings. Add blackmail to the list and cutting corners in the King's Oak development, intimidation and money laundering.
