A $15 stolen knife solves a burglary case

“I became a detective in my department in March of 2010. I took over the cases of the detective I replaced when he went back to the work the road. Through LeadsOnline, I found a knife that was taken in a burglary at one of our local pawn shops. The female who pawned the knife was best friends with our suspect. I charged the woman that pawned the knife and she plead guilty and received probation, she has to attend theft classes, pay fines and restitution totaling over $800.00 for a $15.00 knife. Thank you for your help.”
