When the dead body of a gangster is tossed out of a moving car in front of Police Headquarters, Police Chief Murphy is annoyed to see meek, mild Cosmo Jones taking photographs at the scene. An arrest and grilling only reveals that Cosmo is an amateur criminologist who has taken an interest in the case.

Cosmo gets in deeper when he witnesses a failed kidnap attempt of heiress Susan Fleming. Bystander/witness Eustace Smith, who pronounces himself allergic to bullets and knives, attaches himself to Cosmo for protection. Cosmo is delighted to have an assistant as it makes him feel more professional.

A second kidnap attempt on Fleming is successful as she is taken from her bed in her own home. To Chief Murphy's dismay, Fleming's family trusts Cosmo enough to let him handle the ransom drop. After some confusion with lookalike briefcases, Cosmo ends up at the place where Susan is being held captive; sold out by her boyfriend for a cut of the ransom money.

Police rescue Susan in a shoot out with Eustace conquering his fears long enough to kayo several hoodlums with a mallet.

When it is all over, Cosmo announces he'd like to join the police force. This touches off a typical temper explosion from Chief Murphy.
