Suspect caught selling stolen metal in multiple jurisdictions

“Using LeadsOnline, I discovered a suspect had been selling large amounts of copper. Blytheville PD was investigating a metal theft case involving copper and the suspect was connected. I made contact with the business owner and he advised me that the suspect was on his way with more of that ‘pretty copper!’ The suspect gave consent to search his vehicle and the truck was packed full of cut copper wire. Also in the back seat was a box containing copper sheets. The suspect was brought back to the Osceola PD and gave a taped confession. He was given a bond and is awaiting trial. Thank you LeadsOnline for such an outstanding database.”
