Adam-12 (1968)

At roll call Mac reports that three fishing rods and a custom made one of a kind pair of cowboy boots with green leather detail were stolen from his camper. He offers two steak dinners for their recovery. A report from a horse riding stable leads to Malloy, Reed, and Mac riding horseback to a remote mine shaft after the thieves where Mac hopes to find his boots but to no avail. When they return to the station, Officer Wells is taking up a collection for a man, his daughter and her baby to have gas money to make it to San Franisco for an operation on the baby for a tumor. Back on patrol they spot a man wearing boots that match Mac's one of kind boots but he is another officer who probably bought them from the same man in Mexico. The station comes under sniper fire forcing Mac to have Malloy and Reed set up a command station and take control of the situation. With the aid of the police helicopter they wound and capture the sniper. At the end as Officer Wells tells Mac he is sorry to hear his boots are not unique and he should look out for fakes in the future, Mac tells Wells the man he collected money for is a well known con-artist with a rap sheet everywhere west of the Mississippi River.
