Denver police solve rash of garage burglaries

“Wow, this database is awesome. We have had a rash of garage burglaries over the past couple of weeks and had no suspect information. I have had success in the past with serial numbers on stolen items; however, none of the victims of the garage burglaries had serial numbers on the items that were taken. I queried the specific brand name of a tool that was taken last week and identified the specific item that had been taken, it was somewhat unique. This led to a suspect who had pawned 103 items over a one month period, more than 4 transactions per day. There is currently a warrant issued for his arrest.”
