Jim is kidnapped and neighbor Abe Miller is killed. The Texas Rangers are called in to investigate the shooting, unaware a kidnapping has occurred. They get a false lead when Abe mumbles Jim's name on his death bed. The Rangers assume Jim is the killer and go to investigate. The Rangers interview Frank who is very aggressive. Jim's wife arrives and lets slip she has been to the bank. The Rangers now realize they are dealing with Jim's kidnapping as well. Frank explains the kidnappers warned not to involve the law. Frank tells the Rangers about the pickup point and a trap is set. When the money is dropped it is discovered the kidnappers want the money divided into capsules and attached to homing pigeons. The Rangers organize a helicopter to track the pigeons back to the kidnapper's lair. The Rangers then sneak up on the criminals but are spotted and a gunfight breaks out. The criminals are subdued and Jim is rescued unharmed. Written by glen_chapman See less
