A gang of three burglars break down while driving back home across the moors, and hide their pickings nearby to avoid any suspicion once they realise they have been seen and the police are on the way - to help them. Parkin and DC Radley go to their assistance as a simple matter of routine, and are able to get them going - empty handed. Tom Parry had also been watching and is able to tell Parkin of the men's behaviour, giving Radley the opportunity to lie in wait and see who returns.
