Malloy and Reed are called to a riding stable run by retired actor Slim Berkeley. The owner is careless about trusting people and has $100 and a gold belt buckle stolen. By instinct due to a record in New York his young assistant runs but when searched nothing is found. A call to a phone booth where the man inside is being attacked by another man leads to a drug arrest and sore jaw for Reed. Reed spots a robbery at a drive-in resulting in a shoot-out and capture of the robber. An illegally parked car with a woman who refuses to move the car leads to a second shoot out with two men robbing a liquor store. A complaint is filed by a jewelery salesman. His new convertible is poured full of concrete by the husband of his client in front of the client's house (the concrete had time to completely harden). When Slim reports a second robbery of his clients money, the mother of one the clients comes forward to say her daughter has a history of theft and she returns the belt buckle. Written by Anonymous

Whittinghill's Restaurant
18 November 2008 | by muxloekSee all my reviews

In the scene featuring Dick Whittinghill, the phone booth, and the pusher, you can see the Whittinghill's Restaurant sign in the background while Officer Reed dukes it out with the pusher. The camera lingers on the sign so you can't miss it. How did Whittinghill, a has-been DJ, rate a favor like this from the Adam-12 producers? A buddy of Jack Webb's I guess. Oops, I need 10 lines. Well, I recognized Mantooth from the later Emergency series. Mantooth is suspected of stealing from employer. When it is revealed that the girl is a kleptomaniac we see Reed & Malloy nod knowingly to each other as if they are thinking, It figures, rich chick, kleptomaniac.
