ELKO – In today's society, investigators often utilize online resources to track down criminals.

Leads Online, a company that the Elko County Sheriff's Office uses in its investigations frequently, is one such tool and Pacific Steel & Recycling has paid the bill to use it for the past three years.

Leads Online is a website that tracks pawn shop items across the country.

Investigators use it to keep an eye out for stolen items that criminals sold to the shops. According to Sheriff Jim Pitts and Undersheriff Clair Morris, it has been a very valuable tool for their agency.

Derek Standley, the Assistant Manager of Elko's Pacific Steel branch, said the company feels it is important to support their local communities.

Since people try to bring stolen products to Pacific Steel to sell, Standley believes it is important to do its part to prevent and report theft.

"They call us all the time if they see something that doesn't look right," Pitts said.

Pacific Steel has paid the $2,800 bill for three years so that the sheriff's office can continue to use Leads Online. The company sees it as an important program, according to Standley.

"We really appreciate their support and we wanted to thank them for their contribution," Morris said.
