High dollar property crime solved the same day of the report

“A report came in on Monday about a $26,700 jewelry theft that occurred over the weekend. The suspect was known, so once I typed him in the LeadsOnline search Monday afternoon, of course he popped up. He had pawned most of the jewelry Saturday, and we were able to respond and put a hold on the pieces. Once a friend of the suspect got wind of the investigation, he convinced the suspect to turn the remaining pieces over to the case investigator. Warrants were signed and all jewelry recovered. Team work and LeadsOnline led to a quick and successful conclusion. Thanks so much for all that y’all do.”
