She is immediately abducted by thieves Ernest Zober and Chuck Barton, who received information concerning her movements from Lydia Stevens (Mr. Van Dyce's executive assistant). Dan Mathews and Sergeant Williams investigate and deduce that Rita was a victim rather than a perpetrator. They suspect that Lydia may be involved and Dan drops hints that that the Highway Patrol has a detailed description of Zober and Barton and their car. When Lydia panics, Zober and Barton decide to abandon her and go meet "Mr. Darrell", the prospective buyer of the gems. When Lydia realizes she has been duped and abandoned, she tells Dan all she knows. The information enables Dan and his officers to trap "Mr. Darrell" at a roadblock. They quickly locate Zober and Barton as well, and an armed confrontation ensues with Rita perilously near the line of fire. Written by Sam Spear See less
