The advance man for Brooklyn Red's gang of burglars, disguised as a tramp, comes to Greenfield and sizes up the town, preparatory to robbing the bank. He wires his confederates to meet him at a camp outside the village. There they make the explosive for blowing up the safe. After a series of exciting incidents they bind and gag the young woman in the telephone office and loot the bank. The girl at the switchboard manages to free herself and warn the marshal, but though pursued by an armed posse, the robbers make their getaway. Later, the Bankers' Protective Association does some clever detective work, locating the gang and arresting all the members, each of whom is sentenced to thirty years at hard labor.
