Joe Scanlon working at the casino

Richie Ryan, in an effort to track down his parents, ran across Scanlon who then decided to play the role of Jack Ryan, Richie's long lost father. With Richie's trust he could gain access to the antique shop the young man worked in, and hopefully find enough to steal to cover his outstanding debt with his former employer.

He succeeded in stealing a pre-Columbian mask in solid gold from the shop, but when the furious Richie tracked him to Mrs Gustavson's, instead of running, he showed up to save Richie from Mrs Gustavson's thug, Clinch.  Then both of them were rescued by MacLeod.
