Kleptomaniac Vicki is already under Steve's care, splitting from the home because of her apparently uncontrollable compulsion
The way she figures it, since she needs to steal, she may as well move out and do it without getting Steve into trouble. So she hooks up with one Verna.
Now this Verna is not nice. She is bad. So much as she has no qualms about using Vicki to rip off a joint or two when she runs out of cash.
When Vicki refuses, she derides to try her hand — and ends up cuffed after trying to take from a lawman.
Worse, she manages to get poor Vicki arrested also, for bring an accomplice.
As soon as Steve hears his charge is in a detention camp he rushes there fast and goes smack against corrupt officials who want some "donations" before they release Vicki.
Whereupon Steve brings in some muscle from the Feds to prove a point.
