During the course of her duties, she regularly reviews surveillance footage and compares those she sees with arrest photos. In doing this, she is able to identify many suspects by seeing photos of them. She recently viewed the surveillance photos from a bank robbery and realized the suspect was a person who she knew had been making a large number of pawn transactions. She passed this information on to the Robbery Detective.
