The safe in the Bonanza Flats Wells Fargo office was blown and an employee was killed during the blast. Jim Hardie has been sent to investigate. He arrives to find the agent Al Wiley and the local blacksmith/constable Pete Bradford trying to repair the safe. He is told they know who committed the robbery although they don't have the suspect under arrest. The money stolen was bets on a fight promoted by fighter Miller Sledge and his female manager Lisa Lindsey. Sledge goes barefoot and a barefoot man was seen leaving the office via a window plus there is a barefoot footprint outside the window. Jim tracks down the pair but after a short fight with the huge man, Sledge seems overly willingly to return to prove his innocence.
