Paul Jordan is killed in broad daylight by his three accomplices in a bank robbery that resulted in the theft of $100,000. Jordan manages to kill one of the attackers, but the two survivors of the gun battle (Joe and Blake) deduce that his widow Gloria will know the money's whereabouts. Dan Mathews and Sergeant Williams come to the same conclusion and stake out Gloria Jordan's farm. Gloria attempts to flee to Chicago after mailing the money to her destination, but Joe intercepts her. She is treated roughly until Dan Mathews and Sergeant Williams utilize the element of surprise to capture the three and confirm that the package they recovered from Gloria's mailbox contains the stolen money.

But on those occasions when trouble does flare up, they must meet violence with violence, gunfire with gunfire. Such a flareup took place last May eighth, in the small town of Marionville. As a gunfight was taking place on West Marion Avenue in the industrial section, a secretary, hearing the shots, called the Highway Patrol.
