With the end of Prohibition in sight, mobsters start looking for other ways to keep the money rolling in. Milo Sullivan suggests to his New York associates that they get into the banking business of sorts, providing thieves with the capital they need to pull off a string of robberies. After a million dollar fur robbery, Eliot Ness and the Untouchables are assigned to the case and they focus on trying to get one of the mobsters to cooperate with them. They put pressure on Tony Zagano, who's been living off his loan until he pulls his next job. When the bank gives him 3 days to pay back the loan Tony, realizing that he will be killed if he misses the deadline, turns to the Feds for help. Too late for Tony however when Ness fishes him out of the river. Sullivan makes a major mistake however when he shortchanges Duke Mullen, the man who led the fur heist.
