Employee who steals from his employer is caught with the help of LeadsOnline

“Last year, the Gwinnett Metal Theft Unit was reviewing photos from scrap sales the previous day. One transaction showed a sale of 729 lbs. of spooled copper wire. Further investigation showed six previous transactions for approximately the same amount. The employer of the person selling the copper was contacted and confirmed all the copper had been stolen from the company’s warehouse. The employee confessed to using the company truck to steal the copper. The company lost $20,000 but was able to recover approximately 500 lbs. of the copper. ”
