Hi,
Gramatically speaking, I can make this paraphrase with "replace":
2.Police investigators replaced a similar one with Palmer’s bag, then followed him to his hideout.

But I don't think that's what  investigators usually do.  So I'm confused. I want to make sure which bag is with Palmer after the substitution. Thank you.
