Out to bust up the racket, the FBI assigns agents Bob Anders and Tom Benson to go undercover. Pretending to be drivers, then thieves, they gain Valkus's trust. Bob also meets and falls for Marjorie Rogers, a secretary who is totally unaware of the illegal activities.

Bob is overheard tipping off the FBI to the next heist. He is beaten by Valkus's men, but Marjorie manages to write and deliver a note that brings federal agents to the rescue.
