Recovered drug dealer’s phone leads to identification of other burglary suspects

“I was working a Strict Liability overdose death investigation. When the drug dealer learned of the death, he had attempted to get rid of the cellular phone he had been utilizing by selling it to an ecoATM. The transaction was located using LeadsOnline and showed the phone in his possession, even though the subscriber information had been fraudulently provided during registration.

I was also able to access the suspect’s frequent contacts via Call Detail Records. I ran the contacts list through LeadsOnline, and not only did it identify a large number of the contacts, it also provided a who’s who of burglary suspects for other investigations.”
