Total destruction using only three letters and a number?

OK, even I know that wasn't remotely correct ;)

No, nobody got it right.  You were on the right track before, it is only a word meaning "total destruction" but spelled in a creative way.

And I note nobody has tried for the first riddle yet.

The first one was answered correctly with Pearl.  As far as the second, they're good guesses but still wrong.  The answer is not just the word with a number replacing a letter.

Oh man, that was a good one.

I was thinking WAY outside the box...altering physical constants and stuff.

This is one I got off a TV show and I don't want anyone who already knows the answer to answer it.  My real goal here is to find out of anyone would really be able to figure it out.  You have one week.

A crime is going to be committed.

At a payphone you get a call and are told.
"Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no tales."
After you hang up the phone four quarters and a penny drop out.

Where will the crime take place?

Probably a stupid question, but I'm assuming a penny = 1 cent, yeah?

Maybe if the four quarters and a penny add up to $1.01, the address of the crime will be on 101st Street. Errrm. Can't be more specific than that i'm afraid.

Unfortunately, that's not right.  Your thinking is on the right track for one part of it, but the answer is very specific.

Okay, since nobody got it, the location of the crime is: Police Headquarters room 101.

The reasoning:
"I'll tell you no tales" = the quarters are all heads hence them being head quarters.
A penny is made of copper = "copper" is another word for police officer.
Four quarters and a penny make 101 cents = room 101.

I'm sure a number of you knew the answer already but in all seriousness do you think you would've ever figured it out without it being explained to you?

I didn't answer because I saw that riddle on an episode of Batman the Animated Series, which I think you were referring to? ;-D

Why are the quarters all heads?

But yeah, no, I wouldn't have got that without some very unsubtle hints.
