Storyline

During a horse race someone steals 175.000 dollars from the money room. Al Hayes, the security chief of the race track, contacts chief detective Ironside for help. One employee, Lewis Blackwell, who had access to the money room, has disappeared. In a police chase Blackwell loses the control of his car, crashes and dies. Ironside realizes that Blackwell has only been a stooge for the real thief. His team of detectives investigates every inch of the crashed car, but cannot find any hidden money, or anything else of interest. Someone steals the car, and leaves it some hours later in an alley. That means that the real thief now must have found what he was looking for in the car. Suddenly Ironside gets an idea of what it might be. He commissions Mark to irradiate the car with a special lamp. In the blue light an invisible text is seen on the car paint. It gives the name of an old boat dump. Ironside goes there with his team, hoping to find either the money or the thief. Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

The first episode of the Ironside television series has the chief and his special squad investigating a racetrack robbery where some poor schnook is made the fall guy. With the cops chasing him, he crashes through a highway fence.

For whatever reason the getaway car becomes a valuable piece of evidence. A motorcycle cop played by Kent McCord before he signed on to play a rookie cop in Adam 12 is badly injured by the perpetrator who stole a tow truck to get the car out of a ditch.

Although the crack team of Ed Brown and Barbara Anderson lose the car, it's Raymond Burr of course who comes up with why the car itself was so valuable to the brains behind the robbery even though no loot was found in it.

It's like in those old cartoons when the lightbulb goes off.
