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.

The "Chateau Highlands" subdivision sign shown when the robbers are both at the first phone booth is an actual development in Northridge. As of 2015, a home there for sale by the original owner that bought it in 1961 was going for $695,000. In 1959, adjusted for inflation, this would equate to a $85,046 home. In 1960 dollars, the median price of a home in California was $12,572. When the wife leaves the farm home, earth moving equipment can be heard in the background. See more »


After the woman places the package in her mailbox, Matthews remarks "We won't need that search warrant". Mail is property of the owner and would still require a search warrant for the police to open it. See more »

Narrator: The day-by-day job of law enforcement agencies is the protection of the public and crime prevention. 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.
