Not bad...
27 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Friday and Gannon have a snitch who sometimes sells them information. He's a reliable source, but this time they don't know what to make of him--he does it for free! His lead is about a stolen ring and he tells the detectives that he's seen a guy wearing it.

The detectives visit the rich lady who lost this and other jewelry to see if her description of the ring matches the snitch's. It did, so they decide to do a stakeout--and they need a nice looking woman to go along with them as they frequent the bar where the thief works as a bartender. By the way, I have noticed that bartenders OFTEN are the crooks on "Dragnet".

Eventually, they make contact and the bartender offers them the stolen ring. He's arrested BUT they don't know where the rest of the loot is hidden. If he's caught with only the ring he can claim that he was sold the jade ring and no idea it was stolen. Where it's hidden, how they find out and the real story all make this an interesting tale. Not among the best, but still much better than most episodes from season 3--an off year for the series.
