This fine Kojak episode begins with the ever intrepid plant loving Stavros on stakeout with Saperstein listening to a wire on an informant with Dick O'Neil as one of the talkers. They don't learn enough, but when a night watchman interrupts the plotters these two go into action. The informant is wounded and O'Neil brought into custody.
It's a heist that's being planned with the robbers intending to go in disguised as a paint crew working overtime at a very swank hotel. It's richest resident is dowager Rose Marie who has enough in jewelry to justify the heist in and of itself.
The planner is Robert Loggia and O'Neil whom Stavros and Saperstein got the tip on in the first place is the fence. Loggia gets a triple A for chutzpah actually walks in to Manhattan South pretending to be a lawyer to calm a nervous O'Neil. That might have fooled anyone but Telly Savalas.
To see how it all comes down check this Kojak episode out, one of the better ones they did. Worth seeing just for how they got the loot out of the hotel.
