Malloy returns to duty after recovering from being shot. The manager of a typing school states only money was taken but it appears that typewriters were also stolen. They suspect the school has been buying stolen equipment. The officers research thefts but believe the stolen goods are being moved across country to cover their source. They handle a break-in at a warehouse where a girl and boy knock out the guard and shoot at the officers. The girl is sixteen and daughter of the warehouse owner who tries to persuade Malloy and Reed to free the kids. Mac gives them a hot sheet of serial numbers for typewriters. When they stop at the school an assistant is there who unknowingly allows them to check the typewriters which are stolen. Jim has a fight with his wife over the dangers of his job but at the last minute she decides to attend the ceremony when Jim receives the Medal of Valor. Written by Anonymous
