Agent Horton of the State Bureau of Investigation comes to Mayberry to tell Andy that they have been following an escaped convict, Clarence "Doc" Malloy, who they think may be meeting up with members of his gang. They're hoping he will also lead them to the loot from his last robbery, which has yet to be recovered. He requests Andy and Barney to let them handle the case and stay out of it. Andy agrees but Barney just itches to get involved; so, when Malloy is finally brought in, Barney tries to get information from him disguised as a fellow prisoner. The end result is that Malloy escapes. It's left to Andy and Barney and a key clue from the local dry cleaner that leads them to determine where Malloy is hiding. Written by

There were at least two addresses stated for the Taylor's house, even though they never moved. In the episode "Jailbreak" Barney tells Mr. Horton that the Taylor's address is 24 Elm Street. In "Aunt Bee's Medicine Man" Aunt Bee tells Colonel Harvey their address is 332 Maple Road. There is more evidence that might elude to the address being 332 Maple Road. In "Barney's Sidecar" Opie starts to burn the number 3 by their front porch door. See more
