Vance and Sheila Nolan and their two accomplices use their "Import Company" warehouse as a front for merchandise stolen in a series of truck hijackings. After a driver dies from injuries sustained in one of the hijackings, the Nolans make a deal with driver Joe Tyler to "allow" them to hijack his shipment in return for a payment of $5,000. Dan Mathews and Sergeant Williams investigate the hijacking of Tyler's truck but they are obviously suspicious of his description of the suspects and the gang decides to flee the area. The two accomplices are apprehended by Officer Simpson. The Nolans return to the warehouse, but are unpleasantly surprised when Dan and Sergeant Williams trap them there. A tense armed confrontation ensues. Written by Sam Spear
