Diminutive Danny (Frankie Darro) is Wanted by the Police in this Monogram actioner. Danny is basically a good boy, but he's fallen into bad company-specifically, a gang of toughs who have a habit of taking automobiles that belong to others. The hero's Irish mother (Lillian Elliot) finally figures out what's been going on and begs Danny to cease and desist. When this fails, Mom enlists the aid of Danny's sister Kathleen (Evalyn Knapp) and Kathleen's police-officer boyfriend Mike (Robert Kent) to right old wrongs and set Danny on the proper course. Wanted by the Police was partially remade as the 1948 "Bowery Boys" entry Angels Alley, which also featured Frankie Darro.
