Making fans of police and pawn shops

“On February 22, 2010, I was assigned a theft of a 14k gold ring from a local pawn shop that occurred two days earlier. This pawn shop had been informed about LeadsOnline but had not started reporting transaction data. My department had recently started using LeadsOnline, so I put in the information I knew about the crime and there it was: the suspect pawned the ring at another pawn shop just down the road within minutes of stealing it. I recovered the ring and now the pawn shop where the ring was stolen said their next call was going to be to LeadsOnline so that they could help victim’s just like Leads helped them. Thank you LeadsOnline!!!”
