Johnny Bowers, of the Rockin' P Ranch, while riding to meet Evelyn Grant, daughter of the rancher and banker, Jeremiah Grant, interrupts a gang of train robbers headed by Wingo Wade. Later, Wingo and Howard Breen, who has his eye on Evelyn and who admits to being short in his bank account, plot to waylay a stage that is bringing a consignment of money to the bank. Though Johnny and his pals have been jailed, they trick the constable and escape with his badge, rob the stage, deliver the money to the bank, and return to jail. In desperation, Wingo's gang handcuffs the sheriff and robs the bank; Johnny and his pals pursue them. Johnny engages in a fight with Breen, who falls to his death, leaving Johnny free to marry Evelyn.
