Leads Online Helps Solve City Manager Burglary

November 28, 2013

Tecumseh police have recovered more than $3,000 worth of property that was allegedly stolen by a man to pay for his bond from a previous burglary arrest.

The police department has filed second degree burglary charges with the Pottawatomie County District Attorney's office to request a warrant for the arrest of the Shawnee man who is wanted for allegedly burglarizing the home of Tecumseh City Manager Jimmy Stokes. Investigators were able to identify the suspect because of the nationwide search capabilities of LeadsOnline.

Anthony Smith allegedly cut the electricity before burglarizing Stokes' detached garage on Sept. 21. Tecumseh Police worked with Shawnee Police Department to identify Smith as a suspect from a similar burglary in Shawnee. LeadsOnline alerted Tecumseh police on Nov. 17 when the suspect sold some of the stolen property to a business in Shawnee. After questioning Smith, Tecumseh police received a full confession.
