The "Jewelry Store Burglar" has struck again. We watch him do his last heist and it's kind of strange: the man wears no mask, has an identifying mole on his face and wears a fedora with dark-rimmed glasses. He looks a lot like "Clark Kent," except he speaks with a Southern accent.....yet that accent sounds phony.
With today's video cameras and technology, the guy would never have made it to his second burglary but here (at least on this show) back in the late '50s, he's done six heists in the last few weeks in Chicago and nobody can catch him. Despite reports of what he looks like, the cops' informants have no idea who he could be, either. Is this an amateur who has gotten lucky?
Finally, from a laundry identification, Frank arrests a guy named "Harry Evans," and he looks to be the man. All the evidence points to him, including his Texas accent.
However, his wife (naively?) insists, "Harry is as honest as the day's long. He could never do this!" Actually, she may be right......although all the evidence, including lineups and other witnesses sure don't make her husband look like he's going to beat this rap.
All in all, a pretty interesting story with some unique twists to it. Actor Jim Davis plays both "Evans" and a guy who looks him ("Mickey Saville") and might or might not be the crook. It's hard to tell which of these two bandits is lying.
