Feeling like life was short changing him, Alan decided to help Chet with his request on how to dismantle alarms. As such, Alan became an accomplice in Chet's robberies. Alan, now knowing what was going on with his provided information, decided to go knowingly into Chet's robbery schemes along with Chet's partner, Dave Mayne, they opening a radio store as a front. But greed got the better of Alan, who aimed for more lucrative targets.
