    Hooker and Romano get a call of a armored car robbery. They show up and chase the three crooks. They get away and they go back to the scene for clues. Hooker finds a pidgeon's leg band at the scene. He goes to a friend named Hank Carmichael that can trace it for him. He tells him that it belongs to a guy named Larry Coates. He was one of the robbers. He has a kid sister he cares for named Katie. They go to see Larry at his home. He sees them and takes off. They find Katie after her brother leaves. Hooker finds out that her folks dies two years ago. She does not give them much more information. Hooker gets on her good side by talking about his experiences with pidgeons as a boy. They feed them together. Hooker finds out that Katie ran away from a foster home and went to live with Larry after he was let out of jail. Hooker asks his friend Hank to take in Katie for awile. He agrees after he talks with her about birds. Larry is blackmailed into helping the other crooks with another robbery. Hooker is confronted by a social worker about Hank caring for Kaite. He convinces her to let her stay with Hank. Hooker finds out that Larry Hines was a cell mate of Larry's and that he is the one involved. Sarah Campbell is identifed as the woman involved. Katie overhears the crooks planning another robbery with Larry. She writes a note about it and sends it with Hanks pidgeon. Hooker finds the note and heads off to stop them. The crooks throw Larry and Katie out of the car as Hooker and Romano arrive. Romano chases down the woman and Hooker disarms Karl and arrests him. Katie is allowed to stay with Hank until Larry's problems are solved. Solid episode with a great job by the very young Sydney Penny. She and Hooker have some wonderful scenes together and she is a joy to watch.moreless
