After getting laid off, Weslake begins working in the pawn shop of stingy Garvey. When Weslake's friend Dillard and his pal, electrician Ramon, come in to retrieve Dillard's pawned guitar, Ramon makes a deal with Garvey to install a burglar alarm system. Realizing the system will make his job unnecessary, Weslake teams up with Dillard, Ramon, pimp Boardwalk and homeless man Turtle to rob Garvey's vault.
