Series Regulars in this episode:
Ryker (as Sheriff),
the Virginian, with brief appearance by Judge Garth and Jennifer.

Enforcing the law mattered more than anything to Chief Railroad
Security Charles Sanders (Oakland). Even though the Virginian and Ryker
find evidence to clear Curt Westley (Best) of a false charge, Sanders still
suspects him of the crime and pushes Curt in order to prove his guilt. It
looks really bad for Westley after someone is later seen in his jacket
stealing a payroll. Ryker's investigative method turns up the real culprit
who had implicated Westley because he was in love with the man's wife.
Humbled, Sanders not only feels he's been made a fool of but that the law
which he loves had been made out to be a fool. (bj)

In this episode Ryker reveals he was two years old when his father died. (bj)
