Adam-12 Alcohol (1968–1975) Online
The officers are briefed to be on the lookout for a burglar with a long list of crimes attributed to him. A call about a man who might be the burglar is a friendly drunk at the wrong address who they take in. At the station Mac tells them an Asian woman and her daughter are looking for an old wood stove she gave away not knowing her husband hid his money in it. It was piked up by a yellow truck with one door. They make inquires with the local charities and an antique buyer but with no luck. A call at a phone booth has an obese woman trapped inside who they free with a simple trick. They are called to a stake-out for the burglar and have to go in pursuit of him followed by Reed catching him in a foot chase. During the pursuit Malloy spots the charity truck. They take the woman and daughter to the charity where they recover the money. They end the day with a stop at a bar where Woods is handling the same drunk who has fallen down stairs and injured himself.
