Ohio pawner’s name entered into LeadsOnline statewide database produces arrest

“We have been chasing an individual for about a year that was stealing just about everything in victims yards, ladders for scrap, any tool that he could pawn etc. We were able to shut him down at the pawn shops, and scrap yards in our area and the county northwest of us. The thefts slowed down, almost to a stop. Then he apparently found a place to get rid of the items and graduated to going into pole barns and garages, stealing any and every tool he could. We couldn’t find where he was taking the stuff. We checked his name through LeadsOnline. A store in Newark which is in the County just north of us got the LeadsOnline program, and he was caught again.”
