LeadsOnline Success Stories: Retail Theft

Verona PD recover $4,000 worth of stolen tools

"LeadsOnline helped me locate approximately $4,000 worth of stolen electrical tools, and arrest two individuals, resulting in several felony charges. The recovery of these tools alone relieved the victim business of the hardship that was caused by the theft, and allowed them to continue with their operations. Without LeadsOnline, all of the suspects would not have been identified, and the majority of the tools would not have been recovered. The majority of my theft and burglary cases start by utilizing LeadsOnline! Thank you!"

Stolen TV is located through NCIC hits

"We recently received a notice from LeadsOnline that a TV we entered as stolen into the NCIC system was recently sold at a local business. The TV was taken in a business burglary almost two years ago! The pawn shop was very cooperative, and we are hoping this break will help us solve the burglary. Needless to say, we are pretty happy with just the notice and will be using this success to encourage all of our residents to keep track of their serial numbers. I'm also certain that this success will keep the bean counters convinced that we need this tool."

"Huber Heights Police Detective Brian Doyle and I have been working a retail theft ring involving two males and one female. They have been hitting retail stores across the Miami Valley. A search of LeadsOnline revealed several thousand dollars' worth of new property that was sold by the suspects. This search led Detectives to an additional recovery of approximately $3,000 of stolen property held by the fencer in this case. Thank you LeadsOnline."

Walmart thieves caught and arrested

"I am requesting that Inv. Jason Greenlee be nominated as a "Rock Star" due to his recent involvement in catching some bad guys stealing from several major retailers located in Louisiana and selling the items throughout the state. Inv. Greenlee was able to recover several thousands of dollars worth of merchandise using LeadsOnline. Warrants were obtained on the bad guys with the sharing of different agencies and with the help and information from LeadsOnline."

Suspect steals air conditioning unit and sells in nearby city

"I received a case involving a theft of an air conditioning unit from a local oil field business. After speaking with the complainant I had a possible suspect based on the business owner's suspicion. Once I obtained his information, I ran the suspect through LeadsOnline and was made aware that he had sold the item in a nearby city. Without LeadsOnline this case might not have been so easily solved. I think this is a great tool and will aid me in many more investigations in the future."

Over $35,000 stolen in tools, suspect arrested

We developed a suspect from this information, apprehended him and got a confession. While a lot of the property still remains unrecovered, some of it has been recovered and the 'bad guy' went to jail. Priceless! Thank you."

Hardware store robbed, items recovered less than an hour later

"While investigating a report of theft from a local hardware store, we completed a search of the surrounding areas. By putting a BOLO on these searches, we were alerted 50 minutes later of a transaction. All of the property was recovered, and the suspect was taken into custody after a vehicle pursuit in a neighboring jurisdiction. LeadsOnline helped clear our case!"

Diamond ring found immediately after joining LeadsOnline

"Within 5 minutes of becoming a member, I was able to solve the theft of an $8,000 diamond ring that was stolen from a jewelry store in our town. Upon checking possible suspects, I found the ring in Philadelphia. A few days later I interviewed the suspect and a confession to the theft was obtained. This is a wonderful tool that paid for itself in five minutes of use. I can just imagine the cases I will be able clear with a full year of use. Our department is quite pleased!"

Chainsaw stolen from local business recovered

"A chainsaw was stolen from a local business, and my Sergeant said that it was likely to be sold because it was brand new and never used. I asked if it had been run through LeadsOnline to check, and she told me that it had not. I logged in to LeadsOnline and ran it through and then put a BOLO on it. Low and behold, I came to work the next day and had a hit on it. The officer received the information, made contact with the shop and is now in the process of getting the property back as well as a warrant for the suspect. All thanks in large part to LeadsOnline!"

Tools stolen from woodworking shop and sold to local business in North Carolina

"I ran the name of a suspect who has been suspected in several breaking and entering cases in my county, as well as our neighboring county, through LeadsOnline. I got a hit on the suspect showing he sold numerous power tools. A few days later, I was assigned a report of a felony breaking and entering in a woodworking shop, and felony larceny of power tools. I compared the list of stolen power tools to the list of tools sold by the suspect, and it was a match. The suspect was arrested and placed in jail where he still sits. The burglary reports in the area where he operated have dramatically gone down. It is nice to have LeadsOnline as a resource to stop criminals from creating more victims."

Suspect arrested for shoplifting guitars from major retail chain

"A suspect entered a music store on multiple occasions and stole/shoplifted three guitars with a total price tag of $2,479.97. He sold each one of the guitars at three different businesses located throughout the city. Inventory searches were done at different times and the business generated two reports in this case. The retailer requested prosecution and their loss prevention team has been extremely helpful in the investigation. Our suspect "lawyered" up so there was no interview."

$10,000 organized crime solved

"I was recently was assigned a case where a male and female were observed on video possibly stealing high valued items from Cabelas. Both individuals were identified through media resources. After learning the identities of the two, a simple check through LeadsOnline was done. During the check, over $10,000 of property was identified to as being pawned by the two individuals at multiple pawn shops. Most of the items were recovered and returned to the store. During both suspects interviews they confessed and provided the name of a third individual. Once the third person was identified, the store located surveillance video of the person stealing items from the store as well. A check through LeadsOnline was done on the third individual, revealing several items of stolen property being pawned. All three suspects have been charged with multiple felonies and over $10,000 of stolen property had been recovered and returned to the store."

Case closed before the ink dries – everybody wins!

"A suspect stole a necklace valued at approximately $2,000 from a retail store, and he ran to his vehicle and fled. Within 15 minutes, officers spotted the vehicle, but the suspect denied ever being in the store, etc. When store security video matched the driver, officers began searching the vehicle for the necklace, while the suspect continuously changed his story about its whereabouts. He first said he dropped it, and then he threw it into a field, etc. We knew it was a long shot, but we entered his name into LeadsOnline and found he had just sold it at an area jewelry store about 18 minutes earlier. The ink probably wasn't even dry on the receipt yet! The amount he was paid was the exact amount of cash he had on him when he was arrested. The store got its necklace back, the pawn store got their money back, and the suspect is still trying to figure out how his stories fell apart so fast!"

16 felony charges against Target's Blu-ray thieves

"We had a guy who was stealing hundreds of Blu-ray movies from local Target stores. In two incidents he was stopped by security but produced an expandable baton and fled. We only had photos to go off of. We then searched Blu-rays through LeadsOnline. We compared the MVD photos of those people until we located our guy. We charged him and his neighbor with 16 felony charges."
