Five arrested for more than 20 burglaries in three cities

“I have used LeadsOnline on numerous occasions with great results. The information I have obtained has led to the arrest of numerous subjects for scrap theft and helped seal the deal in a $250,000 copper wire theft. Our department’s latest success comes from the arrest of five subjects who broke into 16 residences in the southeastern part of Union County. The subjects stole numerous televisions and firearms from the residences. At the time of the reports, we were looking for subjects from the area of the crime, but had no luck. I logged into LeadsOnline and searched for the stolen property. On my first search, I immediately got a hit on a subject from El Dorado, Arkansas who sold stolen property to a business in Camden, Arkansas. When I pulled up the ticket I noticed the subject sold three items that matched what was reported stolen, along with a Matthew’s Compound Bow that was also stolen. The victims were immediately able to identify the items as theirs. Upon interviewing the first subject, he gave me the names of the other four who were involved. We were able to arrest all five of the subjects. We not only cleared 16 burglaries in our jurisdiction, but three burglaries in Ouachita County and three burglaries and six vehicle breaking and enterings in Magnolia, Arkansas. Thank you for your help!”
