What is the meaning of "All of this hits by 6:00, 6:30." ?

Det. Lipranzer: I'm supposed to be in the chief's office 8:00 tomorrow to be interviewed By Molto. No discussion. Interview. It's like they're after me, right? Another thing. When I came back tonight they took all the receipts of the evidence I inventoried on Polhemus. No questions asked.

Rozart: Sounds like you're off the case.

Det. Lipranzer: Sure. Fine, but figure this in. I'm at the North Branch before 5:00, going through the microfilm. All of this hits by 6:00, 6:30. Look what I picked up while I was out there. The case number matches the complaint number that was missing when you saw Kenneally.


All of this hits by 6:00, 6:30 refers to everything Lipranzer describes in the first paragraph. Hits is just slang for "happens," but is a little more dramatic.

So what Lipranzar is saying is that he got to the branch at 5:00, but he didn't get the receipts taken from him until 6 or 6:30. So he had that short period of 60 to 90 minutes to look at the microfilm, which is when he found the missing piece of evidence.
