Luke Archer's will stipulates that his huge land holding will be open for filing, but only to ex-convicts who served at least two years in prison. This brings a large criminal element to town but the real crooks are Archer's Lawyer Carse and his henchmen. Dave and his deputies are aided by ex-safecracker Pinky who uses his skills to learn of Carse's plan.
