LeadsOnline Success Stories: Financial Crime

Vehicle used in attempted bank robbery recovered, suspect arrested

Suspect with stolen credit cards caught by LeadsOnline

"After a series of burglaries, the suspect used credit cards taken during the burglaries to purchase gift cards. The suspect was very careful not to give us a shot of his face on surveillance video when using the cards. Transactions from the gift cards showed that he was less careful using those, giving us a shot of his face. We were still unable to ID him. He also purchased a pizza, and he provided his phone number to the restaurant when he ordered it. The phone was a burner and all normal attempts to identify the owner didn't work. I ran a search for the number through LeadsOnline and sure enough, he provided this number to a shop in another state. His picture was pulled, and it was a match to the suspect in the surveillance video."

Pin pointing illegal activity and money laundering

"I am a detective from the Yellow Springs Police Department and am assigned to the Greene County Ace Task Force. We specialize in major felony cases in our county. My Chief and I were able to use LeadsOnline to pin point some illegal pawning that was going on, and I was able to use it in indicting two subjects this week. Due to the specific information that is on your website, we were able to add a money laundering charge for receiving monies on stolen items. So from our victims and our department to you, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR THE INVESTIGATIVE WORLD."

Felony charges for misuse of company credit card

"I was investigating an unlawful use of credit card case where an employee used the company's credit card to purchase tools from Home Depot, but the tools never ended up at the business. The employee claimed he bought the tools and delivered them to the business, and he said someone must have stolen them. I checked the employee's home, Craigslist, eBay and the other sales sites, but I was unable to locate any of the stolen tools. When I checked LeadsOnline, I found the employee sold several of the missing tools at multiple pawn shops in our area. Along with the recovery of the tools, I obtained video of the employee during the actual sale of the items, which lead to felony charges against the employee. Without assistance from LeadsOnline, this case might not have come to a successful conclusion."

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."

Arson and insurance fraud case solved by Fire Marshall using LeadsOnline

"We were interviewing a vehicle owner in regards to his vehicle being reported stolen and burned.

There is no honor or loyalty among criminals. Misery does love company.

"Three suspects, linked to over 10 burglaries in a four month period, were apprehended after a residential burglary in which they stole a victim's purse while she was sleeping. After being awoken to the sound of glass breaking, the victim entered her kitchen to find missing property. She heard the sound of a muffler from a loud vehicle speeding away in the distance. The authorities were made aware of the use of the credit cards stolen along with the purse, and a still photo was acquired of one of the suspects involved. After the photo was placed on a website and in several newspapers, a tip was received as to the whereabouts of the criminal. The suspect turned himself in to authorities and gave up the name of a second suspect who was apprehended and questioned. In turn, he gave up a third suspect from the crime. After running their names through the LeadsOnline database, several items were found. The crooks are now awaiting trial due to the evidence brought forth from LeadsOnline. Thank you LeadsOnline!"
