Victim’s friend turns out to be the suspect of her stolen jewelry

“I received a report about a theft. The victim stated that she was letting a friend stay with her for a couple of days. The victim stated that when her friend left her residence to return to Georgia, she noticed some of her jewelry was gone. I checked LeadsOnline and found out that her friend sold the victim’s jewelry to three different businesses. I was able to retrieve the jewelry that was sold at a business in Martin County. The friend sold one item but subsequently bought it again. I then forwarded the information to a detective in St. Lucie County. Based on the information provided by LeadsOnline, I was able to obtain an arrest warrant on the friend for two counts of dealing in stolen property and false verification of ownership and theft.”
