He had perfected his skills at snatching purses and picking pockets.But when Curly overheard that a church was raising $3,000 for an orphan house in Bristol, his scheme of an armed robbery promised to bring him enough money for a lifetime. Enlisting the help of a local thug and thief, Spud Baxter, a plan is soon put into place. With Spuds pistol and brute force, the churchs treasure should easily be taken.But the highway robbery brings Curly more trouble than he had bargained for.
