Gertie Jones, a female raffles posing as a maid in a fancy home in order to rifle the safe, suprises Jimmy Hartigan in the act of robbing that very safe. She offers to split the take 50-50, a proposition to which he is about to agree when the police arrive. Jim takes full responsibility for the crime, protecting Gertie from arrest. Gertie helps Jim escape from jail, and they take refuge in the country, where they are married by an overeager magistrate who believes them to be an eloping couple. Jim and Gertie decide to go straight and return to the city, investing $10,000 in stolen cash with Bill Munson, who runs off with it. Jim is rearrested by a detective, and Gertie goes after Munson, recovering the money. Jim is being returned by rail to the penitentiary when Gertie boards the train, offering the money to the detective in return for Jim's freedom. The detective refuses until Jim and Gertie save his life when the train is caught in a tunnel collapse. The detective then promises to return the money, letting Jim go to begin a new life with Gertie.
