Andy is working with the State Police trying to track two bank robbers who may be hiding out in the woods somewhere in the vicinity of Mayberry. He's not having much luck until a drunken Otis tells that he saw two city types near where he stashes his illegal liquor. Andy sets off but is taken prisoner by the men after he trips over some of Otis' old liquor bottles and jars. When Andy doesn't return after several hours, Howard and Otis begin to worry and set off to rescue him. Otis can't resist having a drink beforehand so with him drunk, Howard is soon taken prisoner as well. It's left to Andy to rescue all of them. Written by
