|Plot||"Catching a Burglar" opens at a country inn, outside which a motor car is standing. The chauffeur is approached and bribed by two shady characters, who desire to utilize the car in a rail on a country mansion. The car is pulled up outside one of the windows of the house, a ladder reared against the wall and the house entered through a first-floor window. All the most valuable articles in the room are hastily seized and passed down to the car, and the party is about to make off with the spoil when a man servant espies them and runs to his master. The latter quickly orders his own motor car and sets out after that containing the thieves. He is gradually overhauling them, when a tramp, whom the others have bribed, makes a slash at one of the tires with a knife and succeeds in puncturing it. Little time is, however, wasted in replacing the wheel with a spare one which is carried, and the pursuit continues, the rogues lightening their car by throwing out part of the spoil from time to time. The pursuers stop to pick up a policeman and then quickly overhaul the car into which they jump as the two motors are running side by aide, and succeed in securing the runaways.
