One hit leads detectives to uncover thousands in stolen constructions equipment

“While conducting my daily check on LeadsOnline, I came across a stolen gas powered air compressor valued at $1200. The compressor was stolen from a construction site just hours before being pawned by the suspect. I contacted the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office and advised them of the item being recovered. I was later contacted by a Deputy who advised that this case and the suspect interview led to several more construction site thefts being solved and the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen generators, compressors and tools. The suspect was arrested and confessed to all counts charged.”
