by Allan Prior
[Starring] Frank Windsor as Det-Supt Watt, Norman Bowler as Hawkins, Susan Tebbs as P/W DC Donald, Terence Rigby as PC Snow

A rash of minor break-ins is Watt's concern. There is one man he instinctively suspects - Sid Stannish. With a criminal record, Sid is not likely to risk a further sentence for the sake of stealing a few pounds at a time, but is his wife obtaining money for him...?
