Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Friday (Jack Webb) investigates the theft of $10,000 worth of medicinal narcotics from a Catholic Hospital. The trail of clues leads to movie bit player Leonard Castle (Whit Connor)--who, in a typically ironic touch, is currently acting in a B-picture called "Crime Report." Based on a radio episode of Dragnet which originally aired on August 10, 1950, this TV version marks the final appearance of Barton Yarborough as Friday's partner Ben Romero (Yarborough died on December 19, 1951).
