Storyline

Three ex-convicts trying to go straight are accused of a series of hold-ups and bank robberies by Silver City's citizens. When Clay McCord refuses to arrest the three men solely based on their earlier crimes, the townspeople refuse to answer his call for a posse whenever a new crime is perpetrated by the outlaw gang. Clay is forced to take desperate measures - his threats to close down the saloon the parolees own force the former jailbirds to locate the criminals by themselves, and with the help of Clay and Sarge bring the gang to justice.
