Reformed pickpocket Dippy Drake is recruited by crime boss Sleazy Slugg to steal evidence from the district attorney. Dippy refuses, claiming that he has given up crime. However, he has unconsciously stolen Slugg's watch. When Dippy finds the stolen watch and other items, he believes Slugg has framed him. Slugg discovers that Dippy has stolen his watch and takes his men to kill the pickpocket. Green Lantern intercepts Slugg, but can't arrest him, as his men claim to work for "da Guarantee Legal Protective Association," a corporation Slugg proves he just started to the judge. Slugg then plans an accident for the D.A. He steals the evidence himself and returns to his hide-out. Dippy then leads Green Lantern to the hide-out where the evidence is recovered, and Slugg is arrested. Green Lantern then shows Dippy that his pickpocketing has become a subconscious routine. Dippy promises to reform, handing back the opening panel he stole from the beginning of the chapter.
