Andy and Barney travel to the State capital to seek funding for new equipment for the Mayberry Sheriff's office. Barney thinks he's in his element and is convinced that crime is all around him. At their hotel, Barney spots a suspicious character eying a well-to-do and bejeweled matronly woman in the lobby. Andy tells him to mind his own business but Barney being Barney decides that making a bust in the big city might just give them the clout they need to get the money they need. He follows the mysterious man and befriends another man, C.J. Hasler, who tells him he's a newspaperman who can help out. Turns out Barney has got it wrong again and the mystery man is actually the house detective and CJ is the jewel thief.
