    fenced through, shake loose

    In the sentence below, what do the words in bold mean?

    We know the fed heist cash was fenced through the Manklins.

    I'll work the two-nine and see what I can shake loose.

    To fence something = to deal with stolen property. The Manklins are the fences in this case.

    shake loose = find out >> ie shaking information out of people bhy asking questions.
