A roommate fight gone wrong leads to theft and an arrest using LeadsOnline

“A man started a fight with his roommates and came out on the losing end. The two roommates were arrested. After the arrest, the ‘victim’ stole all the electronics from the two arrested roommates. The roommates filed a police report upon posting bail and included all the serial numbers from the stolen electronics. There were no eyewitnesses to the theft. I placed the serial numbers from the stolen items into LeadsOnline. Within two days, I received hits showing the items my suspect sold. I was able to go to the sale location and download surveillance video of the suspect and an accomplice. LeadsOnline made this portion of the investigation effortless.”
