Bank robber identified by Colorado detective

“Longmont Police Department’s Community Service Officer / Detective Beth Buchholtz has the primary duty of conducting pawn investigations using LeadsOnline as a major tool in these investigations. 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. Additional follow up was conducted by other detectives; an arrest warrant was obtained for and an arrest made of the person CSO Buchholtz identified. Not only is Beth adept at conducting pawn investigations she learns the “players” in Longmont and in this case was able to assist in the arrest of the bank robbery suspect.”

Arizona bank robbers caught with LeadsOnline

“Our department responded to a bank robbery in Sahuarita, Arizona. Investigation showed that the same suspect had robbed a different bank, earlier in the day, in Pima County, Arizona. We learned that the day before, an anonymous tip was called in describing the individuals involved in bank robberies in the Tucson area over the past three months. This tip included two phone numbers and three names associated with the suspects. We ran this information through all of our police databases, but it was LeadsOnline that cracked this one open. Search warrants were issued and later in the day three suspects were arrested. After interviews, all three confessed to a total of 11 bank robberies in the Tucson / Sahuarita / Pima County area.”
