Storyline

Rita Hudson accepts delivery of $35,000 worth of imported diamonds on behalf of her employer, Mr. Van Dyce. She is immediately abducted by thieves Ernest Zober and Chuck Barton, who received information concerning her movements from Lydia Stevens (Mr. Van Dyce's executive assistant). Dan Mathews and Sergeant Williams investigate and deduce that Rita was a victim rather than a perpetrator. They suspect that Lydia may be involved and Dan drops hints that that the Highway Patrol has a detailed description of Zober and Barton and their car. When Lydia panics, Zober and Barton decide to abandon her and go meet "Mr. Darrell", the prospective buyer of the gems. When Lydia realizes she has been duped and abandoned, she tells Dan all she knows. The information enables Dan and his officers to trap "Mr. Darrell" at a roadblock. They quickly locate Zober and Barton as well, and an armed confrontation ensues with Rita perilously near the line of fire. Written by Sam Spear

Narrator: Robbery is the most prevalent of all crimes, and the one which is the most difficult to prevent. The ingredients of the crime are something of value, and a person willing to take some risk to get possession of it. On January twenty-seventh, Rita Hudson, employed by the International Diamond Imports Company, arrived at the railroad station to claim a shipment of diamonds consigned to her firm - a very simple procedure involving no risk, since only Rita and her employer knew what the...
