Gangbusters: Crime Agency

This story, posted on Four Color Shadows, has a good premise.  A gang, the "Crime Agency," creates an employment service for maids, uses them to case the residences where they work, and then robs them.  The police send in an undercover policewoman to pose as a maid and trap the gang.  An enjoyable story.
