Handyman Harve Case robs local businessman Fred Briscoe of $11,000 in donations to the "Mother's March" for the children's wing of the local hospital. The initial investigation points to beautician Mabel Wayne, a committee member who knew how the funds would be transported. When Dan Mathews travels to Mabel's Hill-Top Beauty Salon to question her, he finds that she had been assaulted by Case after she found him trying to plant some of the stolen money in her salon. Dan learns that Case had previously overheard Mabel and Lucy Briscoe talking about plans for transporting the money. Case fires at Dan and attempts to escape on a motorcycle, but he is soon hemmed in by strategically placed roadblocks. Written by Sam Spear

Did You Know?


This particular episode is unique, inasmuch as narration is limited to the beginning of the first act. Virtually all episodes of this series included narration to begin both the first and the second acts, and most included several bits of narration at other points as well. In place of the usual narration at the opening of the second act is a snippet from the story's climax, which shows the robber making a desperate u-turn at a roadblock. Normally, scene snippets are only shown at the beginning of the episode. See more »


Fred Briscoe: Mabel wouldn't have anything to do with this robbery - she's one of our best workers for the hospital.
Chief Dan Mathews: Well, maybe she's doing her best work for something else.
