Someone has deposited $20,000 into Lieutenant John Frazier's (Harold J. Stone) bank account. Teller Walter Dorn (Booth Colman) tells Frazier that he himself made the deposit. Frazier is suspended from the force, and stoops to hiring PI Stu Bailey, an occupation he detests. His daughter Kathy (Nancy Malone) has a similar disregard for private detectives. Turns out Dorn, a married man, has been seeing fellow teller Trudie (Virginia Gregg) on the side, and is being blackmailed to implicate Frazier to discredit him in an upcoming trial. Who is the blackmailer and what is the twisted reason? Stu solves the case and wins over Kathy.
