Murder on the border


Synopsis

Philo McCullough, as Farrell, is the head of a smuggling ring who are attempting to smuggle Chinese workers across the border from Mexico. McCullough stops at a hacienda, near the Mexican border, which is owned by Bruce Covington (as Don Jose). Covington's dog, Rin Tin Tin, senses that something is hidden under the vegetables, which McCullough has in his trucks, and discovers the Chinese. McCullough attempts to buy the hacienda from Covington. McCullough also hopes to get Armida (as Pepita), Covington's daughter, as part of the deal. Meanwhile, some border agents (John Litel and William Irving) disguised as tramps, discover McCullough's plans. Armida and Rin Tin Tin take a liking to Litel. Meanwhile, Covington has innocently sold his hacienda to McCullough. When the smugglers find out who Litel real is, they capture him. Rin Tin Tin manages to save him at the last minute. The border patrol then surrounds the hacienda and as Farrell tries to escape in a car but Rin Rin Tin captures him in the nick of time.
