Synopsis:
A string of jewel robberies baffle the police. One night, the Batman catches a pair of thieves after completing the job. Chasing them on a rooftop, he kills one and immobilizes the other. Grabbing the loot, he waits until the police arrive on the scene and catch him holding the stolen items. Now linked with the crime, he drops the loot and makes a daring escape. With Batman accused of being the leader of the gang, the true culprit, Frenchy Blake, is convinced his men can continue since the police will be after the Batman. Unknown to them, Batman listens in on their plans. Following Frenchy's men, Batman foils another robbery. Afterwards, he returns to Frenchy's apartment and forces him to confess to the crimes. He then drops him off at the police headquarters with a note for Commissioner Gordon.
