Suspect admits to stealing three firearms when confronted with LeadsOnline evidence

“I was working a case involving larceny of a firearm. While interviewing the suspect, I used LeadsOnline to show he sold a Ruger black powder pistol to a local shop. This Ruger pistol was not reported as stolen, and the suspect had no history and only a traffic violation on his criminal report. The suspect then confessed to stealing not just one, but three firearms from my victim. I only wish ALL secondhand stores were on LeadsOnline. I also hope that, in the future, photos of jewelry will be required to be submitted by our local dealers. Thanks, LeadsOnline, for another case closed!!!”
