Storyline

Jess Harper is riding shotgun on a stage carrying a $20,000 payroll and he doesn't know that the coach has been sabotaged so that it will wreck. Jess' friend Tad Kimball is responsible for the sabotage so that he and Wes Darrin can steal the money. Jess hits the trail after men whole robbed the stage, not knowing that one of them is Tad. Slim finds evidence that Tad's involved and starts after Jess, who's trailed the bandits to Billings. Jess sets a trap and catches Tad who then takes him to the money. Wes is waiting for them and attempts to murder Jess but Tad saves his life. Then the crooked sheriff arrives, takes the money and traps both men in the mine where the money was hidden. Slim arrives Billings looking for Jess and gets conflicting stories from the sheriff and other people he talks to but time is running out at the mine. Slim has to find out what's going on before it's too late to help Jess and Tad. Written by DarSpi
