Police identify landscaper as suspect in precious metals theft case

“I was assigned to follow up on a theft case. It was unknown when the theft actually occurred, and the large amount of potential suspects proved to make this case difficult to solve. The homeowner was having her house renovated for approximately three months. During this time she was living at another location. When she moved back into her home, she discovered that many pieces of jewelry and coins were missing. She immediately suspected that the construction workers were responsible for the theft. Because of LeadsOnline, I was able to identify the offender, determining that the thefts originated from a couple of years ago until the present time when she discovered some items missing. The offender turned out to be a landscaper rather than the construction workers as she had originally thought. Thanks LeadsOnline!”
