State narcotics agent Ed Coleman asks for Dan Mathews' help in stopping a heroin distribution ring. Information from a recovering addict named Angie and from stunned honeymooners Al and Gloria Miller reveals that that the heroin is being hidden on cars belonging to guests of the exclusive Lakewood Lodge. The drug is later recovered by a pusher named Bolo. Ed Coleman and Dan Mathews apprehend Bolo and pose as lodge guests, but owner Arnold Blackwell has already learned of Bolo's arrest and has ordered the disposition of all heroin on hand. A critical break comes when Dan confronts a nervous bellhop who has obviously been assigned to remove specific cases of dried noodles from the lodge's storage facility. Written by Sam Spear

On the hunt for drug dealers
6 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A recovering heroin addict gives the feds and the Highway Patrol a tip on drug dealers. An unexpected break happens when a small packet of heroin is found in the hubcap of a newly married young couple. The couple is clearly innocent and Mathews and federal agent Al Miller set a trap for the courier who is sure to come after the hidden heroin. He does but the young man tries to capture him - and fails. The young couple had spent a few days at a resort and, pretending to be vacationers, it is there that Mathews and Miller go to investigate. This is the second mid-fifties t.v. show I've seen in the past month (the other was Decoy) dealing with illegal drugs/marijuana. Perhaps it was more a prevalent problem at this time than I had always thought. It was interesting that when Mathews was at the resort supposedly on vacation in sunny California, he wore trousers and not shorts. He did wear a Hawaiian shirt and not a suit jacket. For Mathews this might be explained by his girth but the same was true of his colleague Al Miller. Seeing this brought to mind the fact that I don't remember ever seeing my father in shorts - nor in sneakers for that matter. Except on the beach, it was rare, even in the summer, to see men in shorts (same would be true for women, of course). The very handsome fellow who played Al Miller sure looked familiar. The actor was Rhodes Reason, a name I don't recall ever seeing or hearing. His brother Rex Reason, I have heard of though.
