In their search for piezoelectric gems, Sarge and his teammates Snowflake and Pax went to Charmont Jewelers. They initially posed as regular customers, but Sarge quickly revealed his true intention to rob the store to the manager Dana. Snowflake and Pax thus immediately killed the two security guards of the store, while Sarge ordered Dana to take him to the store's vault. Sarge noticed that Dana had alerted the authorities, but spared her life nonetheless as he needed her.
Sarge and his teammates went into the store's vault with Dana, with Pax damaging the lock behind them so that no one could follow them. While they searched through the vault for piezoelectric gems, a S.H.I.E.L.D. team arrived in the store in order to arrest Sarge and his squad. They soon discovered that they could not easily access the vault, and Yo-Yo Rodriguez used her superhuman speed to chek the rest of the store, which was empty of any other threat.
Inside the vault, Sarge used his Spray Paint Transporter to open a portal to his truck where Jaco awaited them. While Sarge left the store into the truck, Jaco joined his teammates to seize all the piezoelectric gems Pax had eventually found on Dana's indication.
Meanwhile, Melinda May had found the truck cloaked in a shipping yard and managed to infiltrate it as Sarge had left to test out a weapon charged with piezoelectric gems. May quickly fought against Pax, who she promptly defeated, causing Jaco to leave the store through the portal to fight May as well. However, Jaco was defeated as well, and May went into the store's vault to rescue Dana from Snowflake. Dana fled from the truck, which in turn alerted Sarge that something had gone wrong.
Although Snowflake was momentarily trapped inside the vault as May had disabled the portal after returning into the truck where she was confronted by Sarge, the portal was put back in its place by Jaco, enabling Snowflake to leave the store. Snowflake then caused May to trip onto the metal plate on which the portal had been drawn, thus sending her back into the vault. The portal was then disabled by Sarge, trapping May inside the vault. Moments later, the S.H.I.E.L.D. team finally managed to enter the vault, finding only May.
