Local jewelry store catches employee

“A local jewelry store filed a police report stating they had gold jewelry missing from their inventory. They suspected an employee took the jewelry but did not know which employee and could not even pinpoint when it occurred. I searched LeadsOnline to see if any of the employees sold any jewelry, and one had. The business where this employee sold the jewelry actually photographed and uploaded those items into the database. I emailed the photos to the loss prevention officer from the jewelers. He positively identified the photos, and matched each photo to an item missing from the inventory. The employee was charged with larceny by employee, and the photographs and transaction records from LeadsOnline aided in getting the employee to confess to the crime.”
