LeadsOnline helps identify burglary suspect targeting vehicles

“While looking into a large number of thefts from vehicles, I looked at the recent pawn shop transactions using LeadsOnline. I noticed an 18-year-old kid sold two GPS units to a local secondhand shop. The suspect had no local activity and recently moved into the city. A further investigation revealed the suspect matched the description of a burglary suspect. During an interview, the suspect confessed to committing over 10 burglaries and four thefts from vehicles. Had my department not purchased LeadsOnline, I would have never stumbled across this suspect.”
