Salazar (Joe De Santis) is a dirt-bag who deals with drugs. When the show begins, he and his boys steal a shipment of Morphine. There are and important thing this guy doesn't know...his trusted henchmen cannot be trusted. One, Ballard (Edward Binns) is planning on stealing it from him. Two, and definitely worse, his other, Howe (Pat Hingle), is a federal agent!! Imagine Ness' surprise, then, when he brings Howe in for questioning only to realize that they'll have to start working together to bring these guys to justice.

This is a very good though not great episode of "The Untouchables"...worth seeing and very interesting but not one of the standout shows. I particularly liked seeing Hingle, as he played a rather atypical sort of role in this one.
