Pete Wilson is the night supervisor of the Lakeside Municipal Crematorium. On one particularly dark and stormy night, Pete receives a visit from Al Thomas. Not too long ago Pete and Al used to share a cell, but now they share a drink while Al explains his visit. He wants Pete to go in with him on a heist, and all Pete has to do is drive a horse.
Pete agrees to the arrangement, primarily because he can't think of a way to get out of it.

Pete and Al will be robbing the gang that is planning to rob the Dollar Delivery Company next Thursday.
