El Malo, a notorious Mexican bandit, pays a surprise visit to the office of Seth Landport, mayor of Sierra Blanca, robs the safe, and departs with his men. The mayor reports the theft to Sheriff Rankin, who posts a reward for the bandit's capture. Later, El Malo and his aide, Pedro, visit the local cantina, where the bandit resumes his acquaintance with Carmita, a dancer, and Pedro renews his friendship with Dolores. As the mayor's description of him is inaccurate, El Malo discusses the bandit's arrest with the sheriff, who has never seen him previously, and incurs the enmity of Carmita's dance partner, who learns his true identity. El Malo witnesses a stage robbery instigated by Seth, the mayor, and declares him to be the bandit (El Malo) in the presence of the sheriff. Then, El Malo reveals his identity and is about to be taken into custody when the lights are extinguished while the dance partner seeks revenge; but El Malo, Pedro, and Carmita ride for the border.
