Throughout the SeriesEdit
In 48 Hours, when Jake investigates a jewelry store break-in, he notices that it was perpetrated by someone with a similar M.O. to Dustin Whitman. Jake previously arrested Dustin, who was released from prison not long before this robbery. When Jake encounters Dustin on the street, he arrests him for the crime, without having any proper evidence to support that he actually committed it. Jake and the rest of the precinct are forced to spend the next 48 hours proving that Dustin was involved, or, according to the law, they can no longer detain him. As the deadline draws near, Jake is finally able to prove that a former cellmate of Dustin's was seen near the crime scene at the time of the robbery. Thus, making it likely that Dustin taught this cellmate his M.O. so that he could commit the crime, while Dustin had an alibi.
- Dustin is portrayed by famous musician, Kid Cudi.
