Automated hit from online investigations system locates a stolen shotgun

“I received an NCIC hit for a stolen shotgun from a November 2009 burglary in Greenville, South Carolina. I was able to confirm the shotgun as the correct shotgun from the burglary, and I contacted the shop in Greenville to place a hold on the shotgun. Investigator Perron with Greenville County Sheriff’s Department assisted me in recovering the shotgun, which was turned back to the victim. This has been my first NCIC hit recovery through Leads.”

Electric car chargers stolen and found on eBay

“I was assigned a case where a local Nissan dealership reported two Nissan Leaf electric car chargers stolen. The owner’s wife located a few sales on eBay that contained similar items in similar time frames. I ran the seller ID connected to the items and discovered that the seller was an employee of the same Nissan dealership. Coincidentally, he was charged with two counts of larceny by employee. The normal process to obtain this information through eBay takes 20-45 days on average. LeadsOnline saved me a lot of time and effort and helped me close this case quickly.”
