"Click, Click, Caught," LeadsOnline is saving investigators countless hours in the process of catching crooks

"After a recent burglary I checked the name of a "trusted" person that worked for the victim cleaning gutters one day. Within a couple of clicks I was able to locate all of the victim's reported stolen lawn equipment. What a way to show off the slogan, "Click, Click, Caught." LeadsOnline saves our investigators countless hours going to businesses looking through tickets. After approximately seven years of using LeadsOnline I have lost track of all of the "leads" produced by simple searches. I can say the system has more than paid for itself."

LeadsOnline helps a new detective solve an old case

"LeadsOnline helped a brand new detective to solve a year old case. I looked through old case files and came across one that caught my eye. A nice man (victim) allowed his employee (suspect) free reign to his house as a lawn/maintenance man. One day the gentleman noticed some items missing and could not understand who would take them. His maintenance man was my only suspect. I searched LeadsOnline and was able to find a ladder, a saw, and a high dollar pressure washer just by description. I matched that with the first name of the maintenance man and came across a few tickets to look through. My suspect sold the three items at three different locations; and he also had a history. Luckily, he was wanted out of New Mexico. We arrested him for warrants and he confessed to the theft."

Mason City officer proves lying woman wrong with evidence acquired through LeadsOnline

"Last month, a female came into our police department and filled out a report for a stolen Nintendo DS. The female had the serial number, however, the serial number is a sticker attached to the DS. She told me that she had searched her house for a week and could not locate the DS. She told me she did have a friend over that is usually "hard up" for money. I searched on LeadsOnline but could not locate the DS by serial number. I then entered the friend's name and BOOM, there was the friend's name on a transaction ticket with a red Nintendo DS. She did not want her friend charged, she just wanted her property back and for me to tell the friend she was not welcome at the residence anymore. I called the friend and initially played dumb. She was very rude and vulgar with me as she put the blame on the owner's kids saying that they probably stole the DS or that the kids maybe took it to the pool and left it. I then informed her that I had the transaction slip in my hand with her name and what she sold and when. There was nothing but silence on the phone. I then informed her she was not being charged and she confessed to everything. Her attitude with me over the phone changed and she was apologetic and appreciative and even called me honey before the conversation ended."

Even with just the suspect description, LeadsOnline can help you catch your crooks

"There was a theft at a local cell phone store with no more evidence than a suspect description (no video, leads, etc.). I was able to recover two stolen cell phones valued at around $1,400.

LeadsOnline's automated features does the searching for you

"Last month I had an officer ask about a suspect in reference to a stolen cell phone. Knowing the suspect and having used LeadsOnline to watch the suspect sell several cell phones at a drop box in a local Walmart, I checked LeadsOnline with no match. Approximately 30 minutes later I received a hit straight to my cell phone on the suspect which showed him selling the cell phone that was stolen in our case. I forwarded the information to the officer who was able to secure a warrant."

LeadsOnline tutorial highlights feature that gets the case solved

"I recently went through a tutorial with the LeadsOnline Support staff and was able to learn some things that have proved to be helpful, including the Person of Interest table. A junior Investigator and I were assigned a case involving some stolen chainsaws from a local Volunteer Fire Department. After obtaining the serial numbers for one of the chainsaws, we created a Person of Interest profile for one of our main suspects. Within hours we were able to confirm the serial number on the chainsaw and also learned that it was currently in a business outside of our jurisdiction and our main suspect was the one who had sold the chain saw. This later led to an immediate arrest of the suspect and a confession as to where the other chainsaws were located. Had it not been for LeadsOnline and their support staff, we would have had more difficulty closing this case. "

Fort Collins detective's dedication and LeadsOnline's nationwide access led to a case closed and a grateful family going to the press

"I was planning a family vacation from Fort Collins, Colorado, to Abilene, Texas. Prior to leaving, I ran my daily NCIC Hit report. Where should one of our stolen bikes show up but in a store in Abilene! It was a bike worth $1600 that had been stolen from a 15-year-old-boy. I simply attached a bike rack to our family vehicle and was able to recover the bike for our juvenile victim while in Abilene. I didn't think that much about it at the time, but the family was so impressed that LeadsOnline was able to find the bike for us two states away, that they notified the press. The resulting positive public relations was invaluable!"

Automated alerts helped this Illinois department solve two cases in one

"This summer our agency experienced a theft at a local video game store where the offender distracted the clerk and walked out with a video gaming system. We obtained the serial number of the gaming system and entered it into LeadsOnline to monitor local businesses for transactions. The next morning my detective came into work and had an alert from LeadsOnline indicating that the item was sold. The offender was identified because the business took a photo of the stolen item as well as the offenders ID. Upon identifying the offender he was tied into another theft case based on information developed through LeadsOnline. The offender was subsequently charged in both circumstances and the property was recovered. Without LeadsOnline no suspect information would have been available and the cases would have remained open."

Restoring hope to the elderly by returning stolen property

"I investigated a burglary for an elderly gentleman and had no suspects, no leads and poor information about the stolen property. I checked LeadsOnline for the one stolen item I did have and found information on some of the reported stolen property as well as on some items which were not reported. The persons of interest were interviewed and gave a full confession. Two arrests were made as a result of LeadsOnline.

LeadsOnline helps El Dorado detective find property being sold outside his jurisdiction

"Last year, I received a breaking and entering and theft of property report. The complainant reported his work tools and equipment, totaling approximately $5,150, had been stolen from his work van. Three days later, I checked LeadsOnline using the Residents Pawning Outside of Jurisdiction Feature. This led me to discover the tools had been sold in Camden, AR. I made contact with the business owner who provided me with photos of the tools. These tools were then positively identified by the complainant. I made contact with the suspect who had been arrested on an unrelated charge. The suspect ultimately confessed to being responsible for breaking the window out of the work van and stealing the reported property. His confession led me to the recovery of all but one of the remaining stolen items. Needless to say, the company owner was very proud to know their property had been recovered! Thanks LeadsOnline for helping to provide us with a valuable service! "

Evidence found on LeadsOnline gives suspect no other option than confession

"A few months ago, I had a case where a cell phone and other items were taken from a house. After speaking with the victim, I was able to get the serial number for the cell phone that was taken. One of the first steps I took, as always, was to check the serial number of the cell phone through LeadsOnline. I received a hit on LeadsOnline that the phone was sold just hours after the incident occurred at an ecoATM machine close to the victim's house. I printed out the information from LeadsOnline and headed to the address that was provided in the ecoATM transaction. I made contact with the suspect at the house, and after presenting him with the evidence I received from LeadsOnline, he had no other option but to confess everything! He was recently sentenced to 5 years in prison for his actions that day, and thanks to LeadsOnline, he was quickly and easily apprehended!"

LeadsOnline's ability to partner with NCIC proves beneficial once again

"We have had multiple high dollar bike thefts in our area. I had a hit on LeadsOnline through NCIC. I did not get excited at first because I have had several potential hits that were not matches. On this occasion the hit was a match and we were able to recover a $1,000 bike and immediately had a suspect named. The proximity of the theft to the time of transaction gave us enough probable cause for three felony warrants. This was a big help in our arrest and a hopeful end to the stolen bikes. "

North Carolina detective immediately helps woman recover laptop containing irreplaceable memories using LeadsOnline

"A female arrived at the Onslow County Sheriff's Office to file a report of a stolen laptop that had pictures of her family on it that could never be replaced. I took the report and, as always, I checked LeadsOnline. I was able to immediately identify the suspect and the location where the stolen laptop had been sold. I called the store and put an investigative hold on the stolen laptop. After seizing the laptop and securing it in our department's evidence room, the victim decided not to press charges against the suspect because it was her friend's boyfriend. I have spoken to the victim and she has worked it out with the business that she has her laptop in her possession once again. She has received reimbursement for her expenses. The crook did not get prosecuted this time, but the victim is happy, and that is our first priority. Thank you for all of your help."

A cold case got a lot warmer when LeadsOnline's NCIC hit reveals old stolen cell phone

"Two years ago, a victim laid her cell phone down at a checkout counter, forgot and left it behind. A thief stepped up to the counter and put the phone in his pocket. This was caught on security video. However, the suspect was not a known person to police. The case went cold until a Walmart cell phone location began reporting traded in phones to LeadsOnline. The phone's serial number triggered an NCIC hit to the investigators. The phone had been traded in a year ago. The individual who traded the phone was tracked down and she told investigators who she bought the phone from. A file photo of the suspect was compared to the video footage for a match. The suspect was then confronted with the video evidence and confessed. "

Criminal who is not so bright gets caught selling stolen property after denying possession of property to law enforcement

"Two years ago I was investigating a report of a breaking and entering and larceny. The victim advised who he thought the suspect was based on the suspect bragging to friends. Over a year later I made contact with the suspect who stated that he would not meet with me because his mother told him that police could lie to him and they could arrest him based on what someone said. I had already checked the suspect on LeadsOnline and nothing definitive turned up until I decided to do another search on LeadsOnline for the suspect early this year and found that the suspect sold the property late last year, after I originally talked to him, so this should probably be on Dumb Criminals too!

Harris County Sheriff's Office shares about multiple cases closed using LeadsOnline

"I was contacted by Russell and he asked if LeadsOnline has benefitted my agency. I told Russell that it has been awesome and has helped us clear out quite a few cases in the 10 months I have been using it. LeadsOnline has become a go-to tool in burglary cases and has paid off tremendously. My first success with LeadsOnline was a burglary of a habitation in which the suspect destroyed an automatic gate to make entry to the back of the home and did significant damage to the back door. The suspect sold the stolen bicycle which we were able to recover. At this point we ran him through LeadsOnline, and were able to link him and his buddy to several burglaries in the area.<

Next there was a burglary of a habitation in which the young lady had several thousand dollars' worth of jewelry stolen and sold. The items were found and returned using LeadsOnline.

There was also a complaint of a garage broken into and several thousand dollars' worth of tools were recovered and returned. The three local residents were known to officers and led us to recover more tools and lawn equipment and file charges on the three suspects.

Another residence was burglarized and two bicycles were stolen. Again LeadsOnline led us to the suspects and the items were recovered.

A new construction home was stripped of all the copper wiring and a suspect was arrested after using LeadsOnline.

Saving the best for last, we had several burglaries spanning over approximately a year in which jewelry was stolen equaling just above $10,000. The jewelry was located and recovered which led to the confession from a local maid whom several residence's employed. LeadsOnline has allowed us to close quite a few cases in a very short time and has been invaluable. Thank you again for granting us access."

Burglary with a twist is still no match for LeadsOnline and Nampa Police Department

"I recently had a case with a funny twist. It was a home burglary case that turned into to a victim refusal after I determined it was the reporting parties own child that had stolen all their electronics. This is where it gets interesting. Some of the electronics stolen were turned into an ecoATM at one of our local grocery stores by their son. I found out through interviews that they were trying to circumvent the ecoATM by tying electrical cord on a cell phone then allowing it to be taken into the machine. They then would turn in a second phone during which time they would try to yank the cord and pull the original phone back out of the machine so they could use it again, essentially double dipping on the ecoATM. The photos taken by the ecoATM clearly show the cell phone with electrical cables or cord wrapped around it prior to being submitted. You can also see one of the suspects standing there with the cable running from the machine to his hand as if ready to yank the original phone back out. I don't know if this is happening in other areas but I thought it was interesting and something to share. It's nice that this ecoATM reports with LeadsOnline and takes such nice photos. Once I showed the reporting party pictures of their son doing this they quickly wanted to "drop" the issue and charges. "

An instant hit on LeadsOnline leads to the recovery of seven custom guitars for music industry professional

"Earlier this year we took a residential burglary in which the victim had seven of his beloved guitars taken. The victim is a musician and music industry professional who is very attached to his guitars. All of them were custom and worth thousands of dollars, not to mention the sentimental value to the victim. Fortunately for him, LeadsOnline came through again as a valuable investigative tool. The day after the burglary, I began investigating the case in the same way I do all of my cases. First, I checked LeadsOnline for the stolen property. Instantly, I was able to see that the suspect in the case took three of the guitars to separate businesses in our area, along with some stolen electronics. I was able to get holds placed on them immediately, and through the businesses, I verified the suspect information they had on file. Using the investigative leads that came from LeadsOnline, I was able to find the rest of the guitars at another area business that wasn't on LeadsOnline. I talked to them about the success we have finding stolen property and solving burglaries through LeadsOnline. I was assured by their store manager that getting signed up for LeadsOnline was definitely in their future!"

Automated hit helps detective find three suspects and stolen property in just over one week

"While browsing around in the new format, I found one of my stolen property items. It was reported from a burglary investigation, which showed an "NCIC Hit" pawned 9 days after the burglary I was investigating took place. The ticket window had the phone number listed for the person selling the item. I called the number and spoke to the person selling the stolen property. She agreed to come in and subsequently confessed to receiving the stolen property from her baby's daddy (my burglary suspect). She also identified two other accomplices in addition to the identity of the suspect's vehicle. "

Detective recommends LeadsOnline to all departments nationwide after her success

"Hello, I'm a New Orleans detective and I had the occasion of investigating a theft where two leaf blowers were stolen from the bed of the victim's truck. The victim provided serial numbers for the stolen property. One hour after the incident occurred, I checked LeadsOnline, but did not get a hit. The very next day upon checking LeadsOnline, I received a hit that the stolen property was sold at a business in Chalmette, LA. I was able to contact the business, place the property on hold and receive all of the information on the subject who sold the property. I subsequently placed a warrant for "Possession of Stolen Property" out for the subject who was in possession of both leaf blowers. LeadsOnline is a very good tool in helping with investigations. I recommend all departments nationwide to get on board."

Automated search instantly notifies sergeant that his person of interest has sold stolen construction property

"A suspect was named in a burglary at a construction site. The suspect had stolen over $10k worth of tools. The victim had made initials on the stolen items. A few days after inputting the suspects name in a search, LeadsOnline sent me a message that the P.O.I. (person of interest) had sold some items. Further investigation shows that the suspect had sold several of the stolen tools. The business is holding all of the items in question, the investigation is on-going, but with the proof/evidence provided by LeadsOnline, it should end with a successful prosecution and the owner getting his tools back."

Detective finds stolen property before it is reported thanks to LeadsOnline

"While investigating a theft, we located a female suspect who had a new fish finder valued at $170.00 in her purse. I put her name into LeadsOnline and found that she sold two other fish finders within the last month that turned out to be stolen. LeadsOnline also showed where she sold a handgun that had not been reported as stolen yet. Law enforcement officers cannot do their jobs properly without LeadsOnline.

One hit on LeadsOnline led to 14 warrants between 2 suspects

"Recently, I entered in the serial number for an iPad stolen from a vehicle at the hospital. By the next morning I received a hit on the stolen item via email while at my house. I was able to place a hold on the item and hit the ground running when I returned to work on Monday morning. I then received fingerprint hits on one of the two vehicles broken into, and it just so happened to be the brother of the suspect that sold the stolen iPad. I ran the brother's name in LeadsOnline upon getting the fingerprint hit, and was then able to confirm that he sold a GPS from the victim. Both items have been recovered and a total of 14 warrants were signed between the two brothers for all they had stolen and the damages that were done! The initial hit on the iPad gave me a great head start going into the week and hopefully they can be arrested before this weekend so that they do not return to victimize more people parked at the hospital! Thank you!"

LeadsOnline's investigative system assists lieutenant in bringing true justice

"I had a burglary/theft case involving a $900.00 lawn mower. I got a hit from LeadsOnline. Three days later I traveled to the suspect's work an hour away from my jurisdiction and convinced him to talk with me in my vehicle. I received a full confession and the suspect agreed that the victim should not have to pay for the mower at the business. The suspect and I traveled to the business where he paid the owed money and I took possession of the stolen mower. I allowed the victim to speak with the suspect over my speaker phone during which the thief confessed and begged for forgiveness. So in conclusion, the thief is caught and the victim is out nothing at all, which in Missouri doesn't happen. Oh, the victim still wants to press the charges. It was a Good Day."

Viewing associated persons on LeadsOnline gives detective both suspects and all the missing property

"Detective Miller spoke with the victim and he informed me that he believes his employee took the listed items from him while he was at a doctor's appointment. I checked LeadsOnline for the suspect and found where he sold some of the items on the same day they went missing. I looked at the associate tab on LeadsOnline and it came up with a new person associated with the suspect. I checked her tickets in LeadsOnline and found the remaining stolen items, from the construction site, under her name. The victim was able to give me a detail description of the items that were stolen which allowed me to identify them without the serial numbers. The suspects were identified through a photo lineup. I'm obtaining arrest warrants on both suspects for breach of trust and obtaining goods by false pretenses."

Port Arthur Police solve multiple burglaries and home invasions using LeadsOnline

"We had a string of unsolved burglaries that had no leads or witnesses. Many of the complainants in these burglaries did not even have the serial numbers to the items stolen. We believed we knew who the suspect was and I saved him as a person of interest. I began looking into each and every pawn transaction that the suspect had over made over the past 3 months. I went to the pawn shops and discovered that the property came from countless burglaries in our city. The suspect had made tons of pawn transactions from different cities and store locations. After the entire investigation was complete we solved about seven home burglaries and had warrants on the suspect's entire crew. This could not have been done without the help of LeadsOnline. "

LeadsOnline helps police focus on retail theft

"I used LeadsOnline to further an investigation leading to the recovery of property and prosecution in other cases as well. I began to monitor the pawn history of one suspect pawning an unusually high quantity of high-end sporting and hunting optics. He was pawning new items. The suspect was committing fraudulent returns at least two major retailers in a neighboring jurisdiction and then selling the cards via a well-known internet "classifieds" list site. Through coordination of three different local agencies and the dedication of the stores' asset protection staff, the suspect was caught in the act in early September, stealing -- you guessed it -- more binoculars. The suspect subsequently confessed to all the previous thefts. A conservative estimate on the value of the total amount of items could be set at $5000 to $6000. Without the ease of use and automation of LeadsOnline this prolific shoplifter may have gone undetected for much longer and the property may have never been recovered. The agency with jurisdiction in the case is currently working on recovery of the property and prosecution of the case."

A search warrant was served on his girlfriend's home and we recovered multiple tools and the suspect. We ended up with multiple felony charges and we were able to return the tools."

Officer cuts through cases in Juneau Alaska using LeadsOnline

"I was recently assigned to a patrol-based burglary investigator position, and LeadsOnline has been a very valuable tool. Along with the case involving firearms that were recovered, we have also recovered a very high end (collector's edition) filet knife (only in Alaska would a filet knife be a collector's item), and a Nikon DSLR camera that was stolen from a local business. The camera was found after I saved the search to run continually. I was thrilled to find that I didn't have to run a new search for the same item every day!"

Suspect hops to different cities in Alaska; Fairbanks Police investigators hop faster

"My case involved a subject in relation to stolen property from vehicles. After running her name, we found she appeared to be committing the thefts in Fairbanks and going to Anchorage to sell the property. Through my cases and others with the Alaska State Troopers we were able to track her down and get her arrested on nearly $30,000 in arrest warrants relating to these thefts. She is currently incarcerated and expected to be there for quite some time. I would have taken an incredible amount of leg work to locate the different locations of the transactions which I suspect I would have missed since they were not routine to us."

Family provides place to stay; In appreciation, guest steals camera gear

"Sahuarita Police Department Officer A. Medina took a report detailing a suspected theft from residence of a Canon camera, Canon lens and several items of jewelry. Total value was approximated at $1,500. The victim identified a possible suspect as a person who had been living with her in the prior two months during the time he was relocating and seeking employment. Officer Medina questioned the individual who denied having any knowledge of the missing items. Four days later, assistant to Investigations D. Taylor flagged this case for follow-up. He entered a LeadsOnline search utilizing the name of the individual. The search disclosed several transactions conducted by the individual to include a television, Canon camera, Canon lens, several pieces of jewelry and other miscellaneous items. Taylor called and faxed the pawn company placing a police hold on all items related to the reported theft. He then printed a criminal history report on the suspect which divulged numerous interactions with law enforcement. This information along with the Leads Online search results and original case report were provided to Detective Sergeant J. Zamora for assignment to a detective. The case was assigned to Detective S. Bunting who recovered all relevant and available property from the pawn shop. Many of the jewelry items had already been shipped to another, out of state, branch of the pawn company. Detective Bunting did considerable follow up work with the pawn company and recovered all of the victim's jewelry as well. The suspect was located by Detective Bunting, arrested and charged with Felony Theft. The arrestee subsequently pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

"While investigating a burglary complaint, names of the suspects and the items taken were given. Doing a LeadsOnline search revealed the suspect and the items at our local pawn shop. There were even a couple items the victim didn't yet know were stolen. Contact was made with the pawn shop to gather the items. It was very valuable using the automated confiscation order through LeadsOnline so that the business had an official and informative paper trail for both our records. Upon arriving, my suspects were there pawning something unrelated. Dumb cop luck! Got the items, videos, confessions, and guilty pleas. Thanks to LeadsOnline, I was saved time and effort in several different areas. Thanks again."

LeadsOnline is criminals' kryptonite; Detectives search nationwide, not just three doors down

"I have been in law enforcement for 22 years now and know all too well the challenges investigating property crimes. It was standard, and unfortunately accepted, that you were limited to looking in your immediate area. This primarily consisted of going to pawn shops in person and reviewing tickets. As you can imagine, the man hours that it took to accomplish this task was astronomical and the cases were very rarely solved. To tell you how LeadsOnline has revolutionized the field of investigations would be like trying to explain how beneficial air is to the living soul! LeadsOnline is the criminal's kryptonite and now WE have the edge. The most beneficial factor is that our elected officials have now seen this and have begun to pass mandatory electronic reporting laws. I can assure you that if it was not for LeadsOnline, this would not even be a thought. Let me finish by saying this: LeadsOnline is the fuel in the investigative engine. I access it multiple times a day and it has not only made me a very formidable investigator, but it has definitely shaken the criminal element to its very foundation. I want to personally thank each of you for doing what you do for us in law enforcement, but more so for victims of crime."

LeadsOnline to criminals: game on

"I've been a LeadsOnline user for many years now and have located a lot of reported stolen property while using this great system. In my latest adventure, I was just checking LeadsOnline on items that were reported stolen in a new case with no person of interest information. The items were two "Bolens" brand weed trimmers, one the victim actually had the serial number for. I simply entered my case number and then the brand name of "Bolens" and there it was; the top reported item was for a "Bolens" BL110 weed wacker with the same serial number reported by this victim. The date of the transaction was listed as a day prior to when the victim had listed it missing, funny that. In checking the listed item information for the guy who had sold it; he had listed an address just two houses down and across the street from this victim. The item is on a police hold and now…game on. Thanks LeadsOnline for this great tool and system."

Kentucky State Police track down credit card thief

"While working a credit card theft/fraudulent use of a credit card case, I hit a snag in identifying the unknown male subject who had been using the cards. All I had to identify the male suspect was a date of birth, which was given when the suspected used the debit card to purchase a large quantity of cigarettes at a business. I entered this date of birth into LeadsOnline and found only three subjects who have sold items with that date of birth. After checking these subjects through our driver's license database, I found only one subject that matched the description of the suspect that had been fraudulently using the debit cards. I ended up going to his residence and found all of the debit cards and ID's that were stolen, along with several pieces of merchandise within his home that were purchased with the stolen debit cards.

Investigator able to solve entire case from his desk

"I recently had a family who had to put their daughter and boyfriend out of the house because of personal conflict. The father was in the hospital and not in the house to notice numerous hunting knives, old coins, compound bow and numerous tools and pieces of unique turquoise jewelry missing. The mother was looking for some of the coins to take to her husband in the hospital and discovered they were missing. This led to her looking for other valuables that her husband asked her to check on. She discovered the above mentioned items missing and reported them to us. I immediately worked on getting into LeadsOnline and checking the database for the daughter and boyfriend to see if they had sold any of the missing items. I immediately made a successful hit on the turquoise jewelry that had been sold by the boyfriend. I am still working the case and finding more items that were stolen from his ex-employer, but never reported.

LeadsOnline helps law enforcement identify three suspects

"In March, I was assigned a case in which three suspects, dressed as construction workers, entered three large construction sites located in Pasadena and stole multiple tools and pieces of construction equipment. Surveillance cameras on site captured video of the vehicle. I created a BOLO, which was sent out to surrounding agencies. I was contacted by a Detective with another agency and advised that they believed the same suspect vehicle had committed a similar offense in their city. I was further advised that they had been able to identify one suspect when the conducted a LeadsOnline search using the serial number of a stolen tool and discovered that the suspect had sold the tool shortly after the theft. I was able to locate this suspect and the suspect vehicle. I conducted a LeadsOnline search and discovered that he had cold multiple tools in recent weeks. I was able to view a tool bag with hand tools at a business and was able to verify that they were stolen from a construction site in a nearby city as there was a work ID still in the tool bag. We conducted surveillance on this vehicle and ultimately followed the vehicle occupied by three males drive to a neighboring county where they committed three burglaries of storage buildings on construction sites as well as one theft from a construction sites. All three suspects were arrested and are facing Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity - Burglary of Building charges.

Checkbook thief gets checked into jail

"Toward the end of last year, we were being swarmed with vehicle break-ins in our area and had no suspect descriptions. My only lead was one vehicle that had a checkbook stolen out of it and I was later able to pull up a picture of the guy who tried to cash one of the checks at a local bank branch. After randomly looking through LeadsOnline for similar property that had been stolen from the break-ins, I noticed a female that had turned an iPhone in at one of the local EcoATM's.

LeadsOnline tracks down fugitives on the run

"In a neighboring agency, a young woman had a firearm stolen. It was determined that her father had stolen the firearm from her and sold it at a business. Her father then fled and was not seen again for several years. The agency issued a felony warrant for his arrest; however, the case went cold. The victim stated that her father was a good man prior to falling in with the wrong crowd and marrying a woman affiliated with that crowd. The victim provided me with a name and date of birth. Using LeadsOnline, I searched for that woman and two entries were found. Both were where the suspects had sold some power tools and cellular phones. I immediately passed the information along and within two days, a suspect who had been on the run for two years was placed in custody and is awaiting extradition. Although the neighboring agency receives credit for the arrest, I was proud to play an integral part in the location and apprehension of the suspect."

LeadsOnline proves you have to be careful who you trust

"In January, our agency took a theft report where our victim reported five items of jewelry missing from her bedroom. During my interview with the victim, she disclosed that she had an HVAC serviceman in her home around the same time she believed the jewelry went missing. She trusted the serviceman and never would have suspected him to steal from her. After obtaining the serviceman's name, I searched him on LeadsOnline. During the search, I located a ticket from a business that listed the serviceman as the selling party. The ticket included a photograph of the jewelry, a picture of the serviceman during the transaction, and a photograph of his Illinois state identification card he presented. The serviceman sold our victim's jewelry to the business for $450, about a half hour after he was in her home. The retail value of the jewelry was approximately $1,500. The jewelry was recovered and an arrest warrant for residential burglary was later obtained and successfully executed."

Detective can't imagine doing his job without LeadsOnline

"In February, White County Arkansas Sheriff's Deputies were called to an attempted break in at a shop building. A neighbor saw the suspects leaving in a silver Dodge pickup and a camo Yamaha Rhino. Even though we had information regarding the registered owner of the Dodge, we had no further evidence to support the requirements for an arrest or to have an advantage in an interview. I make it a standard practice to research LeadsOnline in ALL of my cases and did so with this. I am proud to say that as usual, I was not disappointed! Not only did I find that the suspect regularly used his truck in scrap transactions, but he also used a trailer in one of them that was also used at the scene.

LeadsOnline helps easily identify suspects

"By using LeadsOnline to run certain types of tools that were being stolen from a business, we were able to identify the suspect who sold those tools. Once we identified him, he became a suspect in three store thefts. The suspect will soon be arrested and charged with theft in some cases and a CBI case in another! I love this system. "

Criminal loses at her own game

"In February, a landlord reported that two window air conditioning units had been stolen out of his rental house. The tenant was interviewed by police and she told the officer the date that the units were stolen. She provided the officer with a story that a neighbor called her and told her that someone had damaged the home and had stolen the A/C units. While reviewing reports, I searched LeadsOnline and discovered where the tenant sold the two units in January. She will be arrested for the false statements and for selling the property."

LeadsOnline search credited for solving 4 cases at 3 different agencies

"I was assigned two cases for burglary and theft of property that occurred in February. During the course of the investigation, I found some of the property through LeadsOnline at a local business. The suspect had also sold several other items, but no report could be found on the other items. Later while looking for the suspect, I learned the suspect was a person of interest in a church burglary that occurred in early 2015, so I made contact with the Detective working that case. After receiving the case, I noticed some of the items reported stolen matched the description of items the suspect had just sold the week before. During the interview I showed him the proof of the sold items from Craighead County and he confessed not only to that Burglary, but to another theft. The LeadsOnline search is credited for solving 4 cases at three different agencies."

$17,000 of valuables retrieved quickly thanks to LeadsOnline

"In February, a Hot Spring County resident was burglarized. This event was traumatic and they feared that the person responsible may return. Hot Spring County Sheriff's Department responded and processed the crime scene. The victim was able to provide a copy of the item that had been taken from his home. One item was a set of samurai swords that had unique characteristics on them. Armed with this information, I detailed my searched and discovered the business that had the victim's property, thus leading to an arrest, and recovered the victim's property back. The victim reported an estimate of $17,000 of valuables that had been taken. Without LeadsOnline, our case may not have to lead to the arrest so quickly."

LeadsOnline helps Investigator make multiple charges

"I had a suspect in custody and was questioning him about a stolen vehicle which contained stolen law enforcement items from a vehicle break-in. He denied having any knowledge of the law enforcement items in the vehicle. While doing the arrest paperwork, I decided to research him on LeadsOnline. I found that he had just sold a law enforcement taser that was part of the stolen items taken from the law enforcement vehicle. Needless to say, he was charged accordingly. It was a huge success because I was able to prove that he lied to me and it allowed me to go more in depth with the investigation and make multiple more charges because of LeadsOnline. Thank you!"

Photos of suspect in LeadsOnline system help lead to arrest

Video game theft lands villain in jail

"I was recently sent to our Super Target store where a known subject had stolen approximately $500 worth of various video games.

The female was later apprehended and confessed to her involvement, which ultimately lead to the implication of a previously unidentified co-conspirator, as well as admissions to numerous other retail thefts in the area.

Crooks have nowhere to hide when law enforcement uses LeadsOnline

"I use LeadsOnline as one of my tools in conducting follow-up burglary investigations. While investigating a burglary, I located a piece of property at a business in West Memphis, Arkansas, which a local victim reported stolen from my jurisdiction, in St. Louis, Missouri. Armed with the transaction information, I was able to quickly contact the business and place a hold on the item. I then called the West Memphis Police Department and advised them of the situation. I was able to give a representative of the West Memphis Police Department a suspect's name and pedigree for the crime of receiving stolen property (our local charge for such an offense) within their jurisdiction. I also advised that the subject has multiple transaction records in Arkansas and Tennessee. I called the victim, advised him of my findings, and gave him contact information for the West Memphis Police Department. Since the item is located out of my jurisdiction, the West Memphis Police Department will conduct further follow-up with the help of the burglary victim. It was all thanks to LeadsOnline that I was able to help the victim locate his missing property, and lead another Police Department toward a suspect that has slipped out of my reach. With LeadsOnline, there is nowhere to hide."

LeadsOnline provided Investigating officers with the name and location of the business and most importantly, the name of the individual who sold the stolen items. With this information, Investigating officers were able the interview the individual who sold the stolen items and arrest two suspects. Investigating Officers continued to search for the remaining property. Additional searches through LeadsOnline found more stolen property had been pawned by the suspect."

There's no price on returning sentimental stolen property

"During a recent delayed burglary investigation with no suspect information, I located a missing item using LeadsOnline. The business was contacted, and they agreed to hold the item.

There's no flat screen TVs where this electronic thief is heading

"A male suspect was living with a family that trusted him as a friend. Before Christmas, he decided to move on to another residence.

Police call LeadsOnline a great asset to their department

"I solved a case that included over 30-40 victims in two jurisdictions. I searched LeadsOnline and located an iPod that was sold at a local business just one day after the theft. During the summer, several jurisdictions were getting hit with larceny from vehicles that occurred overnight. By finding this one iPod, it led myself and several detectives to a house that contained over 50 stolen items. As I was searching LeadsOnline for stolen property related to a burglary I was investigating, I came across two class rings that were sold. These two class rings were very unique, and they actually had a name engraved on the inside of the ring. By working with our crime analyst, we were able to determine that the rings were stolen from a neighboring jurisdiction. The rings were part of a burglary series that has led to one person being charged. LeadsOnline is a great asset to my department, and I will continue to use it on a daily basis."

Vehicle burglary solved and stolen property returned to victim

"I was assigned to follow up on a vehicle burglary. The burglary occurred in a store parking lot and store surveillance video provided a vehicle description and a possible tag for the suspect's vehicle. I ran the suspect vehicle tag number through LeadsOnline and got the registered owner of the vehicle. I searched LeadsOnline with that name and found the suspect had pawned stolen property from the burglary. Leads also had photos of the property at the time of the sale. The suspect confessed and handed over the remaining stolen items from the vehicle burglary."

A normal day using LeadsOnline solves cases for victims

"Recently, I investigated a residential burglary in which a high priced guitar was stolen from a residence. Several days after the burglary, we received a hit from LeadsOnline that an individual sold the guitar to a business in a different city. I recovered the guitar and returned it to the victim. Later, I had the opportunity to arrest the individual that sold the guitar to the business. After a long interview, the suspect confessed to this burglary as well as numerous others within the area. The suspect admitted he took all the property from the burglaries to the businesses. Based on this information, I was able to print off his transaction history in LeadsOnline and go over all property with the suspect to verify if it was stolen or not. This helped in recovering property and also led to additional charges of the suspect. Thanks LeadsOnline!"

Tennessee Police arrest suspect for selling stolen property outside their jurisdiction

"Ever since receiving a free trial of your program last year and seeing firsthand what it is capable of, I have been actively attempting to get our department hooked up with LeadsOnline. Our agency is a small 20+ man department north of Nashville, Tennessee, and as many other law enforcement professionals are aware, it can be difficult to find money for something new. Luckily, we were able to find room in the budget and give LeadsOnline a chance. Our agency has only had the program a short time; however, I found an item that was sold 30 miles away by one of our residents. The item matched the description of something that was taken during a burglary the previous night. I printed off the ticket provided by LeadsOnline and went to speak with the suspect. Long story short, he finally broke down and confessed to the burglary after being confronted with the copy of the ticket. He then proceeded to give me the rest of the stolen items in his possession. This individual had no criminal history and would not have been considered a suspect. Needless to say, if not for the LeadsOnline program, he might have got away with this crime. LeadsOnline has been an awesome resource and I would highly recommend it to other agencies. I look forward to all of the future cases that will be solved using this program."

Stolen iPad recovered thanks to Charleston County Sheriff's Office and LeadsOnline

"My agency recently got LeadsOnline, and while conducting a search, I located a possible match to a stolen iPad. I was able to verify the serial number was the same as the one stolen from my jurisdiction. I am in South Carolina, and the iPad was located at a cell phone/tablet ATM in Texas. During my investigation, I identified the suspect as a resident of where the crime occurred. Positive identification was made, and we successfully closed this case. The item was recovered and returned to the owner. Even though this wasn't a major case, the tools and resources that LeadsOnline provided were helpful, and this item may have never been recovered without it. I have found this to be a very viable tool."

Camera stolen from San Francisco recovered in Florida

"I located an NCIC hit for a Canon digital camera valued at over $1,000. The victim is a resident from Texas who was visiting San Francisco. His rental vehicle was broken into and numerous items of camera equipment were stolen. The victim completed an online police report and provided serial numbers for some of the stolen equipment. Once the match was found, a hold was placed on the stolen camera. The business was located in Lakeland, Florida! Following confirmation of ownership, the business agreed to release the property to the victim. Unfortunately, we were never able to contact the person who sold the stolen property or establish any other suspect information."

San Francisco and Las Vegas Police work together to get a win for the good guys

"A California businessman was visiting a store in San Francisco when he negligently left his iPad on a display case. The iPad was stolen, and the victim filed a police report, providing the serial number of the item. During a search of LeadsOnline, I got an NCIC hit from a transaction out of Las Vegas. It was no coincidence that the person who sold the stolen iPad was originally a San Francisco resident with a checkered criminal past. With the assistance of a Detective from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the iPad was recovered. Nearly 18 months later, the victim was indeed surprised and happy to have his property returned. In the big scheme of things, this is a very minor success; however, it's nice to have a small win once in a while."

Multi-jurisdictional burglar caught with LeadsOnline

"I recently solved a case by searching LeadsOnline that included more than 30 to 40 victims from two jurisdiction. I located an iPod that was pawned at a local pawn shop just one day after the theft. During the summer, several jurisdictions were getting hit with larceny from vehicles that had occurred overnight. By finding this one iPod, it led myself and several detectives to a house that contained over 50 stolen items. As I was searching LeadsOnline for stolen property related to a burglary I was investigating, I came across two class rings that were pawned. These two class rings were very unique, and they actually had a named inscribed on the inside of the ring. By working with our crime analyst, we were able to determine that the rings were stolen from a neighboring jurisdiction. The rings were part of a burglary series that has led to one person being charged. LeadsOnline is a great asset to my department, and I will continue to use it on a daily basis."

Utilizing the names that the victim provided me with, I searched LeadsOnline where I learned that one of the friends did, in fact, sell the computers at a store about 20 miles away. The store was very cooperative, and they provided me with photos of the computers, as well as a copy of the suspect's ID and thumbprint. As a result, I was able to obtain charges against the suspect!"

South Bend PD has great success since using LeadsOnline

"The South Bend Police Department was alerted to a residential burglary in our city. The suspects broke in and stole over $40,000 worth of musical equipment from the home while the resident was out of town. The victim had specific details pertaining to the stolen property and we checked out area shops with no luck. Several days after the incident, South Bend Police Burglary Unit Detective Kelly Waite was utilizing LeadsOnline to check activity outside of the city. While searching data across the country, Detective Waite found a transaction in a Chicago, Illinois secondhand store. The items sold were consistent with some of the stolen property from this residential burglary. The transaction occurred within weeks of the residential burglary being investigated, and the person making the sale had ties to the South Bend, Indiana area. Detective Waite further investigated this sale, traveled to Chicago for follow up, and determined that the property sold at this Chicago secondhand store was indeed some of the property stolen from the South Bend, Indiana residence. The person making the initial transaction was located and information was gathered that led to most of the remaining property being recovered. The majority of the property was still in South Bend, Indiana. The case investigation is continuing and further leads are being followed. LeadsOnline, and the focused investigative effort by Detective Waite, are being credited with this positive outcome to a residential burglary that without them, would have still been unsolved. The South Bend Police Department began their use of LeadsOnline in September 2013. Local secondhand stores and precious metal dealers have been utilizing the LeadsOnline service to document their daily transactions since the start of 2014. Businesses have publicly given praise to LeadsOnline stating the service is free and easy to use for the merchants. Since beginning the use of LeadsOnline, the South Bend Police Department has located dozens of stolen items such as cell phones, laptop computers, game systems, bicycles and electronic devices locally. LeadsOnline has also been credited by the South Bend Police Department Burglary Unit with recovering a stolen handgun and laptop computer in two separate cases in Texas, numerous items in Chicago and locating a felony fugitive in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, among several other successful usage of this tool."

Victim's stolen property recovered outside of jurisdiction

"Using LeadsOnline, I located some items from a garage burglary that were sold at a business in Harriman, Tennessee…a store located over 20 miles from my jurisdiction!

LeadsOnline was a great tool in locating items for me without having to drive to numerous stores or spending countless hours calling them all daily. LeadsOnline was also helpful when I called the business to place a hold, LeadsOnline had already taken care of that for me as well. This prevented my victim's property from being sold. Thank you LeadsOnline."

LeadsOnline can be instrumental in providing evidence

"During a knock-and-talk with a suspect, my partner and I noticed a camper on the adjacent property. The door of the camper appeared to be slightly ajar, so we went to investigate and found the door was pried open. We found muddy boot prints inside. The suspect we interviewed became increasingly nervous but with little to no proof he committed the crime, the chances of making an arrest that day were slim. We also found the residence on the same property was broken into and several tools were taken. We made contact with the victim and got a working list of the items that were taken. We took pics of the boots the suspect had in his residence and several photos of the items around his property in hopes of catching him with the pry bar. After we left, I checked LeadsOnline hoping the guy sold some items, but I came up with nothing. The next Monday, I was using LeadsOnline and to my excitement, I located the transaction ticket from Saturday where our suspect must have gotten spooked and sold the stolen tools to a local shop. LeadsOnline was instrumental in the capture of this suspect and based on the facts of the case we would have had a very hard time proving the crime, and less of a chance to recover our victim's items."

LeadsOnline catches even the sneakiest suspects

"A victim reported a burglary to Delhi Township Police Department The victim's tools were stolen from the basement of a two family house where he resides. The victim suspected guests of the other tenant. Through investigation and LeadsOnline, we located the victim's stolen tools. The main suspect in the case never sold anything in his name. The suspect asked his mother and cousin to sell the items in their name instead of his own. The store video was obtained, and the main suspect is seen on the video with the other people who sold the tools. Charges were pressed against all of them, but without LeadsOnline it is doubtful the stolen tools would have been located since the suspect we were looking at didn't actually sell the items."

Two stolen saws recovered and returned to the owner

"I took a report months ago on a breaking and entering case. The suspects took two chainsaws, and the victim called the store he purchased them from to obtain the model and serial numbers. I just registered with LeadsOnline the day before I got this report. When I returned back to the office I signed on to LeadsOnline, entered the serial numbers, and found one of the saws. After going to the shop, I got video footage and a copy of the suspect's driver's license. I also seized the saw before anyone was able to purchase it. Even though they have not yet been arrested, I found out who my suspect was through this awesome website. I got a call the next day from the shop, and they advised us there was a male in there who was trying to sell the other saw. When I arrived I found out the suspect sold him the saw in the parking lot after the shop refused to buy it. I seized it and returned both stolen saws to the owner. Thank you LeadsOnline. I will for sure be using your help from now on. I just wish I had been on board a long time ago."

LeadsOnline helps identify suspect of unknown burglary

"A couple of months ago I was contacted by a friend of mine who works for a neighboring county. He gave me the name of a guy who was a suspect in a burglary. I ran the name through LeadsOnline for him, but was not able to find the property that he was looking for. Instead, I found the suspect had sold different stolen items from a separate burglary. The Investigator told me that he had not even suspected this guy of being anywhere near the second burglary. Thanks to LeadsOnline the owner was able to get his property back, the case was solved and now that agency is signing up for access to LeadsOnline. Thank you again."

LeadsOnline training helps law enforcement close cases

"LeadsOnline rep, Anya, visited me at the Hialeah Gardens Police Station to educate me and my fellow detectives on how to use the system. During the training, I discovered that three iPads and two iPhones had been sold in our city. These items were the same ones that were taken in a residential burglary. This discovery led us to arrest four suspects. Our agency was able to clear a total of five cases, two residential burglaries and three vehicle burglaries. Our neighboring agency, Hialeah Police, also cleared numerous cases due to the lead that began with LeadsOnline. Thank you!"

Police recover mother's stolen belongings with advanced search techniques

"My mother's house was broken into, and there was no physical evidence to collect at the scene to develop leads. When I lived with my mom after college, I wrote down several serial numbers of items in her house. These provided some information to follow up on after the break-in. Using LeadsOnline, I went a few weeks with no hits on the serial numbers. When I started searching for just the item descriptions and not the serial numbers, I located a leaf blower that was stolen from my mom's house. It was sold eight days after the theft. Using LeadsOnline I searched the suspect and located several items from several house burglaries that occurred in the past few weeks. As we began recovering items from the business, we learned that the business was intentionally entering the wrong serial numbers on items being sold to them. Thanks LeadsOnline for locating some of my mom's stolen items and also helping us recover other items which lead to several arrests."

Serial residential and vehicle burglars caught with help of LeadsOnline

"We recently made an arrest for several burglaries throughout the city of Hialeah and Hialeah Gardens. The subjects were targeting residents and vehicles. They were 'car hopping' by going up and down residential areas and attempting to locate unlocked vehicles. If unlocked, they opened and removed any property from inside. This was mostly done during the night hours. During the day, they committed residential burglaries by entering through the rear of the house, breaking a bedroom window or sliding glass door. Once inside the residence, they ransacked the houses and removed jewelry and electronics. On some cases, the subjects removed the keys to the victim's vehicle and stole the vehicle. At the end of the crime spree, the subjects would get together and attempt to sell the property at a local business. We used LeadsOnline to recover some of the property and identify the suspects."

"A victim called the Bolingbrook Police Department to report her missing digital camera. It went missing from her home, where only family members and one family friend had access. The victim contacted Jennifer from LeadsOnline, in hopes to recover her own camera. Jennifer contacted me and got the ball rolling for the victim. The victim gave me the serial number and the name of the family friend who had a shady past. I located the camera in Summit Argo, Illinois, but it was sold by the victim's brother, not the family friend.

Ex-girlfriend steals young children's video games for cash

"I recently had an investigation where a single father of five children reported a theft. He reported his five children, ages 3-10, had multiple Nintendo DS devices stolen over a period of a month. The father stated at first he thought the children had misplaced them since one was coming up missing after the other, but that was not the case. The father was dating a lady who he trusted, and let inside his home with his children. Unknown to the father, the girlfriend was periodically stealing the Nintendo devices from his children, starting with the 3-year-old child. After all the Nintendo devices were stolen, the father and the girlfriend broke up. A few weeks passed by, and he was told by a relative of his ex-girlfriend that she stole all of his children's Nintendo games. The relative told the father they had one of the Nintendo devices in their possession, and the ex-girlfriend probably sold the others. We were given a name of the ex-girlfriend, and ran that information through LeadsOnline. We located all of the stolen property, and it was returned to the children. When we located and identified the Nintendo devices, we noticed the ex-girlfriend didn't even delete the pictures of the children or try to conceal who owned them. We have a warrant out for her arrest. She is currently on the run, not only for this charge, but many others."

High school thieves sell stolen iPod to ecoATM

"I received a report that our local high school was broken into. The suspects took an iPod from the desk of one of the teachers, and I showed the teacher how to look up her serial number through her iTunes account. I plugged in the serial number on LeadsOnline and 'Voila,' my suspect now has a name and a face. By the way, he was a former student at the high school, and his brother still is. They perfectly matched the description of our suspects. The great thing was that it wasn't recovered at a secondhand shop. Our local mall has a new machine called ecoATM, where you can insert an old electronic device, and it will give you money for it. Thank goodness the company that owns the machine is hooked up with LeadsOnline! This is yet another time you have solved a case for me. I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks!"

Couple arrested for over eight burglaries across multiple jurisdictions

"This summer and early fall, Goliad County was plagued with a rash of thefts and burglaries. Using LeadsOnline to check on some of the stolen property, I identified an individual selling some of the stolen items in a nearby community. Then, running that individual's name through the LeadsOnline system, I tracked down even more property, some of which we did not have a serial number for. By continuously tracking the suspect through LeadsOnline while we were preparing criminal charges, we found even more stolen property which, in turn, led us to burglaries that had not yet been discovered by the victims. The subsequent investigation found a male and female were responsible for at least eight burglaries, and at least a dozen theft cases in our jurisdiction, as well as a number of similar crimes in adjacent jurisdictions. The pair was arrested, charged, and are now awaiting trial on numerous felony charges. Additionally, we recovered a great deal of stolen property, and returned it to the rightful owners. All of this occurred because of LeadsOnline."

New LeadsOnline users are extremely pleased with their success

"About a month ago, we took advantage of the LeadsOnline 30 day free trial. Previously, I would contact the business and have them gather information for me. They were always helpful, but turnaround time was poor, and I always had to ask for assistance. We took full advantage of the trial period, made several arrests and recovered victim's property. I inquired about LeadsOnline from a cost standpoint and was really pleased at how little the cost for our department would be. I had no problem presenting this to our Sheriff, and he immediately got us on board. We have recovered numerous stolen items, family heirlooms, etc. and made several felony arrests. Our entire department is very pleased with our newest tool in our fight against crime."

Victim's watch stolen from athletic club and recovered with LeadsOnline

"I recently investigated a larceny in a building case where a Raymond Weil watch was reported stolen out of a local athletic club. The victim was unable to provide a serial number for the watch. I located a similar watch on LeadsOnline that was sold approximately four hours after the watch was reported stolen. The watch was sold to a shop in close proximity to my jurisdiction. The subject who sold the watch had a membership at the athletic club in question, and after further investigation, I proved the subject who sold the watch was my suspect. According to my suspect, he found the watch outside. Although I was not able to prosecute, I did locate my victim's watch and got it back for him. The watch was a gift from his wife and meant a lot to him. The suspect ended up reimbursing the victim for money spent buying his watch back. This case would have never been solved without LeadsOnline, and my victim never would have seen his watch again."

Gilbert PD recover over $20,000 worth of stolen property

"Due to NCIC reporting guidelines several items with serial numbers never get entered into the national database, and therefore have a slim chance of getting recovered. With this being known, I began running every stolen item with a serial number reported to our agency through LeadsOnline. Since beginning this, we have recovered over $20,000 worth of our victim's stolen property from 30 different cases. Out of the 30 cases, so far 12 people have been arrested. Some of the other cases are still actively being investigated and hopefully will lead to additional arrests."

Five arrested for more than 20 burglaries in three cities

"I have used LeadsOnline on numerous occasions with great results. The information I have obtained has led to the arrest of numerous subjects for scrap theft and helped seal the deal in a $250,000 copper wire theft. Our department's latest success comes from the arrest of five subjects who broke into 16 residences in the southeastern part of Union County. The subjects stole numerous televisions and firearms from the residences. At the time of the reports, we were looking for subjects from the area of the crime, but had no luck. I logged into LeadsOnline and searched for the stolen property. On my first search, I immediately got a hit on a subject from El Dorado, Arkansas who sold stolen property to a business in Camden, Arkansas. When I pulled up the ticket I noticed the subject sold three items that matched what was reported stolen, along with a Matthew's Compound Bow that was also stolen. The victims were immediately able to identify the items as theirs. Upon interviewing the first subject, he gave me the names of the other four who were involved. We were able to arrest all five of the subjects. We not only cleared 16 burglaries in our jurisdiction, but three burglaries in Ouachita County and three burglaries and six vehicle breaking and enterings in Magnolia, Arkansas. Thank you for your help!"

Missouri police return victim's stolen property

"A victim reported a residential burglary and the theft of a Chop Saw. When questioned about when the property was stolen, the victim gave a specific date. She said she departed for work, and when she returned to her residence she found her walk-through garage door wide open. I asked who she thought took the saw, and she explained she was having problems with her boyfriend's brother. She said he was on drugs and was selling a lot of his family's property. She identified her boyfriend's brother by name and acknowledged she would likely never see the saw again. She reiterated how she couldn't stand people stealing her property, and she wanted the suspect's family to know she would go to the police. I checked LeadsOnline regarding the suspect and property. Even though the victim didn't know the serial number and model, LeadsOnline assisted in identifying the saw. After checking the suspect by name, I learned he sold the victim's saw.

Stolen musical instruments returned to church in Kentucky

"Our agency had a burglary complaint from a local church. Trooper Whitaker responded to the church and spoke with the pastor who explained they had some musical equipment stolen. At the time there were no leads. I logged into LeadsOnline to check if any of the stolen items matched any from my agency. I found a guitar and other equipment that was sold in a city about two hours from the church. When I checked the subject's name, I quickly realized he lived about half a mile from the church that was burglarized. I immediately called the business to make sure they still had the items in their possession, and luckily they did. I explained to them the situation, and they were very understanding. I contacted Trooper Whitaker and advised him of the findings, and he was familiar with the suspect. He retrieved the items from the business and returned it to the church where they were able to enjoy them once again. Trooper Whitaker also located the suspect who gave a full written confession for the crime. Since then, he has been indicted on the charges. Without LeadsOnline these items would have never been recovered and an arrest would not have happened so quickly."

New LeadsOnline users say amount recovered far exceeds expectations

"I am now a believer. My 30 days of free usage will come to an end soon, and I will miss not having it. This specific case was solved only because of me using LeadsOnline. I found the NCIC hit from LeadsOnline showing all stolen property entered. They showed where it was sold to, and this would have never been solved had it not been for this website. If all of our detectives use this, a lot more cases could be solved. The property that will get recovered will far exceed the amount we pay for the service in a year. I have only been using it for about two weeks and already in this one case there was $2,500 worth of property that was stolen, and I made three arrests."

Police have no leads on burglary until LeadsOnline

"A burglary was reported to our agency when a Nikon SLR camera, detachable flash and a Beats by Dr. Dre headset was stolen. No possible offender was identified prior to the LeadsOnline inquiry. Due to the victim assigning incorrect serial numbers of the items stolen, the initial inquiry didn't reveal the items. But after utilizing the flexibility of the LeadsOnline inquiry system, the same model camera was located in Chicago by residents of a neighboring town of the burglary location. After confirming the correct serial numbers, the items were recovered. Not only were the items recovered, but two suspects were identified, caught on video, arrested for residential burglary and took guilty pleas on the case. Thank you LeadsOnline!"

Search show iPod thief responsible for more thefts

"I was assigned a residential burglary case, and I conducted a LeadsOnline search for the stolen iPod. Since the serial number was provided to the Officer, I was able to positively verify the iPod was at a local shop. The items were sold within three hours of the time the victim left her residence. The victim was able to verify the Apple iPod was her property and stated she still has the receipt. I also located three pairs of women's earrings sold by the suspect on the same day. The victim was able to give me a description of the property, and it matched the items. The items were on two separate transactions. The victim did not give anyone permission to enter her home or take her property. After conducting my investigation, I determined that probable cause existed to arrest the defendant for the burglary. The suspect was located in the St. Lucie County Jail and is being held for the following charges; Felony Theft and dealing in Stolen Property. I went to the St. Lucie County Jail to interview the suspect about the burglary. The suspect admitted to the burglary and taking the items that were pawned. The suspect did not admit to taking any property I did not have proof that he took. The suspect stated he stole the property because he is currently homeless, a drug user and owed people money. Thank you LeadsOnline!"

Weed eater stolen from front yard, found a week later

"We took a report from a resident who said they were using their new Stihl weed eater in the front yard when it ran out of string. They took the spool off the weed eater, and went to the garage to re-spool it. Upon returning within minutes to finish the job, the new Stihl weed eater was gone so they filed a theft report. It took the complainant a little over a week to provide us with the model and serial number, but once we had that information, we entered the weed eater into LeadsOnline. Not checking my hit list every day (like I will now) my LeadsOnline rep. called me and reminded me to check my hit list because there were alerts waiting. After a little follow up investigation, we did an early morning wakeup call to our suspect. On the way back to PD, after stopping for coffee, we just so happened to drive by the house where the weed eater was stolen from and the suspect said, 'That's the house I took the weed eater from.' End of story thanks to LeadsOnline."

Stolen gaming system returned a year after stolen

"I received an NCIC hit on a PS3 that was stolen over a year ago. This was a residential burglary. The reporting officer entered the item into NCIC with the serial number. A year after it was stolen, I received the hit from Leads regarding the reported stolen item and contacted the store to obtain the necessary information to hold the item. I contacted the victim and he refused to prosecute, stating 'it's been too long, I just want my property back.' He was referred to the store. The item was removed from NCIC. This case has been closed due to refusal to prosecute. Thank you LeadsOnline. Without Leads this item would not have been recovered!"

Items from church returned months after being stolen

"Leads does it again. An unidentified female called a church in Pflugerville and claimed she had left items in the sanctuary. After she was allowed into the building several microphones were discovered missing. The only information officers were able to ascertain from the church were the make and models of the microphones, a physical description of the suspect and a possible last name from caller ID. The offender did not fence the items for several months. Then, a Leads search of the property description without serial numbers, in association with the last name from the caller ID, returned hits resulting in the recovery of the stolen microphones and the positive ID of the offender.

Irreplaceable guitar recovered for victim

"We had a residential burglary and among the items taken was a red guitar that was handmade for the victim by his now deceased father. Of course being handmade there was no serial numbers, but the victim was able to provide the reporting officer a detailed description. When I spoke to him, he was able to tell me a little more. I checked LeadsOnline for a red guitar, but nothing hit. I sent out an email asking that they keep a lookout for this guitar. The next day there was a LeadsOnline entry for me that sounded like the guitar that was stolen. I drove to the business, where it was located and found that the guitar matched the one stolen in our burglary. The victim was able to meet me and recover his property. Of all the items that were taken, this was the most valuable to the victim, not in cost (very little), but sentimental."

I contacted the victim and asked him if the two tools had any unique descriptors. I then examined the tools at the shop and based on his description, the two tools belonged to the victim. I then filed felony charges on the suspect and was able to return the two items to the victim. This is a case where you don't always need the serial numbers to locate stolen property (though serial numbers make it a lot easier). I use LeadsOnline every day, and it is a tremendous investigative tool. Thanks!"

Four counts of felony charges filed against an ex-boyfriend

"In October, my victim located a pawn slip, from her ex-boyfriend, showing an item of jewelry belonging to her. The victim quickly discovered numerous other items missing, leading to a Denver Police theft report.

The case remained on hold until the following June, when the suspect was located and arrested on the theft/pawn violation warrant. The case was accepted by the district attorney's office, and four felony charges accepted against the suspect. Thanks LeadsOnline."

Police track down stolen Xbox in home theft case

"I was assigned a case involving the theft of an Xbox 360 game system with controllers. The victim reported that her sister and her sister's boyfriend had been babysitting her kids while she was at work. When the victim returned home her sister and sister's boyfriend had company over at the house. She went to bed in her bedroom and unknowing to her, her sister and sister's boyfriend left the home, leaving the male company in the house. When the victim woke up the following morning, she discovered that her kids' Xbox 360 was missing along with her Ford truck, a cell phone, and a ladies diamond ring. After calling the police to report these items missing, she realized she still had the box that the Xbox 360 game system came in. The serial number was still on the box. After checking leadsonline.com and entering the serial numbers, there was a match for an Xbox 360 being pawned in Hammond, Indiana. The suspect's information matched the identity of the male who was left in the house. Felony charges for Theft were filed against the suspect."

Denver police solve rash of garage burglaries

"Wow, this database is awesome. We have had a rash of garage burglaries over the past couple of weeks and had no suspect information. I have had success in the past with serial numbers on stolen items; however, none of the victims of the garage burglaries had serial numbers on the items that were taken. I queried the specific brand name of a tool that was taken last week and identified the specific item that had been taken, it was somewhat unique. This led to a suspect who had pawned 103 items over a one month period, more than 4 transactions per day. There is currently a warrant issued for his arrest."

Alabama police recover property stolen from local firefighter

"We had a burglary report filed with us. The victim is a fireman for one of the local jurisdictions. Being familiar with the area that he lives in, and suspects that live in the area I had a suspect in mind. I ran the suspect on LeadsOnline and got a hit. The suspect pawned two guitars, a motorcycle helmet, and a wireless microphone system for a motorcycle. All of the items were reported stolen by the victim. Deputies were then able to pick the suspect up for questioning. When the suspect was picked up, Deputies found a notebook (laptop), several watches, and an expensive pair of sunglasses belonging to the victim in the suspect's possession. This also led to a third guitar that was stolen from the victim being recovered. Thanks to Leads, I was able to recover approximately $1,700 worth of the victim's property. Since becoming involved with LeadsOnline eight or so years ago, I have had quite a bit of success using the system. I have never submitted any stories until now.

Vehicle burglary solved in less than 24 hours

"LEADSONLINE DOES IT AGAIN! I took a report of a vehicle burglary in Boise. The victim is in town temporarily for medical treatments. I was not given a serial number for the two cordless drills stolen, but decided to search for one of them due to its unique model name "Black and Decker Cyclone drill." The next day, I received notification from LeadsOnline that a match had been found! A person of interest pawned two drills the day of the burglary, one of which was the Black and Decker (though it was entered as a Super Cyclone, LeadsOnline still matched it). I contacted the shop, and they verified the drill did have the victim's name etched on it. An arrest is pending, and the victim will get his drills back. I cannot thank the staff of LeadsOnline enough for the service they offer and the continued support of law enforcement. THANK YOU!"

Denver police close the door on the garage burglary case thanks to LeadsOnline

"A garage burglary occurred in the City of Denver. The report was made around 0900 hours on that day. No suspect information was provided. By entering the serial number of a stolen $2,000 bicycle that was stolen into LeadsOnline, I was able to obtain information that the bicycle was pawned in a neighboring city just a few hours after the burglary was reported. This information provided by LeadsOnline then led me to enter the suspect's name into the database for known pawns. Low and behold, the suspect had forty two pawns in the metro area. It all seemed to be garage type items. Through the investigation, I located three other items stolen during the burglary, which were pawned by the same suspect in a different neighboring city. A computer check indicated that this suspect and his associates were charged in Fargo, North Dakota for burglary related charges. Information gathered indicated that it was LeadsOnline that was instrumental in these arrests as well. Due to LeadsOnline, I was able to obtain an arrest warrant for the suspect, which included one count of Second Degree Burglary and two counts of Pawnbroker Violations. The warrant was posted with a $50,000 bond. Thanks!"

Rapid search helps Oregon detective solve numerous burglaries

"I recently cleared two burglary cases because of LeadsOnline. I had two burglary incidents in the same small town reported over a 10-day span. I searched LeadsOnline for the stolen property my victim reported and confirmed the pawner was a person of interest in the case making him the hands down suspect. The suspect identified with LeadsOnline made statements to witnesses that were eerily the same as statements the suspect made in my other burglary case. A photo line up was created, and the suspect found on LeadsOnline was identified as the suspect my first victim caught in the act. Because LeadsOnline is so easy to use and full of great info, I was able to clear two cases (arrest warrant pending on suspect) and thousands of dollars in property was returned to my victim.

$6,000 worth of property recovered thanks to LeadsOnline

"Our agency is in the process of getting LeadsOnline, and a LeadsOnline staff member set up an account so I could see how LeadsOnline works. Within a day of trying the system, I was able to solve a burglary case and recover over $4,500 worth of professional camera gear and other equipment at a local secondhand dealer. The suspect was charged with three felonies and might be able to solve others in the immediate area. Since this incident, I have recovered over $6,000 worth of property and have been able to return it to the many victims in these cases. I wouldn't have been able to find this property based on our current reporting policies. I would highly recommend using LeadsOnline for pawn shop and gold buyer/precious metal dealers for reporting practices."

Troublesome neighbors to blame for missing tools

"LeadsOnline helped me solve another case. I was recently assigned a burglary with little to go on except a whole list of tools (nothing out of the ordinary and of course no serial numbers). After speaking with the victim, I learned of some troublesome neighbors. A search on LeadsOnline for the neighbor's name produced a pawn ticket with most of the tools (only vaguely described). I met with the victim at the pawn shop, and he was able to identify the tools as his own. Like most tool owners, the victim knew all of the working and non-workings of his tools. The victim was able to describe something specific about each tool that eliminated any doubt they were his. Thanks again LeadsOnline, I can now obtain a warrant and investigate further knowing I'm on the right track."

One Leads hit locates a stolen Rolex and solves additional cases

"I was sitting in a briefing when an officer mentioned that a victim had a Rolex stolen from her vehicle. Detectives aren't typically assigned to a Theft from Auto, but given the specific brand of watch, I thought I'd search LeadsOnline. I got an instant hit with Leads where a Rolex was sold the same day as the theft. A picture of the watch submitted by the shop proved to be helpful, too. I was able to compare that to a picture the victim submitted. I recovered the watch and was able to return it to the victim. She is a law school student who had borrowed her mother's watch. The watch had been in their family for 20 years. She was extremely thankful for getting it back. I did some additional follow up with the suspect in this case and have since used LeadsOnline to connect him to another burglary in the same area as the Theft from Auto. He sold watches and some computer equipment from one burglary to the same shop. I recovered video from the shop to then do a search warrant on the suspect's vehicle, which gave me items from two other burglaries. The suspect was on probation for burglary so he's been in jail since. Thanks LeadsOnline."

Online investigations reporting system leads police to rare, stolen guitars

"One of our Officers took a report of two very expensive, rare guitars stolen from a storage locker. The owner had been out of the country for a few weeks, and when he returned, he found his prized guitars were stolen. These guitars were valued at $9,000. After being assigned to this case, I searched in LeadsOnline for the guitars and instantly got a hit. I found that it was a female who sold the guitars to a local shop pawn shop, but through questioning and surveillance I received information that her boyfriend was involved. I recovered the rare guitars before they could be resold. I really appreciate LeadsOnline in this case because the victim reported the burglary the middle of January 2013 but the guitars had been stolen and sold a month earlier.

Stolen laptop links roommate's boyfriend to burglary of a motor vehicle

"The victim of a burglary to motor vehicle advised that she believed her roommate's boyfriend, the suspect, had taken her laptop from her vehicle and pawned it. I conducted an online search, through LeadsOnline, using the name the victim provided. This search revealed that the person the victim named pawned a stolen laptop. The victim was unable to provide a serial number; therefore, I responded to the shop, to identify the laptop. I contacted the pawn shop manager and he provided the laptop. I then contacted the victim to identify the laptop. The victim positively identified the laptop by photos on the device and physical attributes (distinctive markings). Management agreed to have the property returned to the victim. This case was accepted by the District Attorney's Office. The offender took a plea bargain and is serving prison time."

Concerned pawn shop owner and LeadsOnline identify employee theft

"A pawn shop owner called with concerns of a customer who was bringing in a number of high-dollar depth finders ($2,000-$3,000 each) that were still in the box. He asked if they were hot or not because of their value and because they were still being in the box. I searched LeadsOnline and found that one young man in his 20s was selling these at several stores. Based on this and the pawnshop owners concern, I contacted boat manufactures in our area along with marinas, but nothing matching these was missing. Marion County Sheriff's Department, home of Ranger Boats, was contacted by our department (Baxter County Sheriff's Department), and it was found that Ranger Boats had filed a report of theft of the items found. It was also found that the young man worked for them in their parts department. Investigators with Marion County Sheriff's Office are working on arrest warrants for the individual in the case. The Marion County and Baxter County Sheriff's Department work very well together and were able to stop this from continuing."

"I was assigned to follow up on a case where a suspect was found with stolen items in a stolen vehicle. I tracked some of the stolen items to a burglary of a small carpet installation business. This led me to check the suspect's name in LeadsOnline, which showed he sold other items from that same burglary. This suspect had sold and pawned numerous items in 8 months' time. I have now tracked down items this suspect sold from another burglary to a small tree trimming business and items he stole from his brothers, father and uncle. The satisfaction of returning these items to the rightful owners is amazing. The small business owners were especially grateful because these tools help them make a living. Thanks LeadsOnline."

Victim is brought to teams when police recover her stolen cello worth $37,000

"There was a home burglary where the victim had a laptop, TV and a cello stolen. The cello was a Nikolai Tambosky valued at $37,000. The victim described the loss of the cello as being as bad as someone losing a husband. I looked up to see if any cellos had been pawned and they had not. The cello didn't have a serial number so it could not be entered into NCIC. I saved my search in LeadsOnline. I received an IP address from the stolen computer. After doing an inquisition subpoena on the IP address and waiting to hear back from the court I didn't locate anything at that address. I closed the case due to lack of evidence. I then received an email from LeadsOnline that over a month after the burglary, a cello was pawned. I went to the pawnshop and located the victim's cello. I took it to her work, and she broke down and cried telling me she hasn't slept in over a month! Thank you LeadsOnline, it would not have been located without you!"

Ohio police use online investigations system to solve a string of break-ins

"While investigating a couple of burglars who were recently arrested, I was looking into possible pawn history. I recently found an Apple iPad that I linked to an additional burglary. The serial number matched exactly to the LeadsOnline posting so I was able to go back and locate the receipt from the bookstore where the victim purchased it. Search warrants were also obtained for the suspect's apartment, and I was able to confirm and link them to several other burglaries that were still unsolved."

Police identify landscaper as suspect in precious metals theft case

"I was assigned to follow up on a theft case. It was unknown when the theft actually occurred, and the large amount of potential suspects proved to make this case difficult to solve. The homeowner was having her house renovated for approximately three months. During this time she was living at another location. When she moved back into her home, she discovered that many pieces of jewelry and coins were missing. She immediately suspected that the construction workers were responsible for the theft. Because of LeadsOnline, I was able to identify the offender, determining that the thefts originated from a couple of years ago until the present time when she discovered some items missing. The offender turned out to be a landscaper rather than the construction workers as she had originally thought. Thanks LeadsOnline!"

Solid intel, solid bust – suspect identified same day

"Officers responded to a burglary of a residence. Upon arrival, the officers identified that the homeowner left his residence between 9:30 - 9:40 a.m. and returned around the time of the call at 6:30 p.m. When the homeowner arrived home, they noticed someone had kicked in the backdoor of the residence and had stolen a Nintendo gaming system, NABI tablet and various pieces of jewelry. Officers processed the scene and a report was taken. When I arrived on scene I asked the initial responding officers if there were any possible suspects and I was advised that the homeowners noticed a male subject near their house just prior to them leaving for work. I logged onto Leads Online to conduct a search. While reviewing the results, a name of a known offender within our community popped up and showed recent activity, as recent as 11:30 a.m. on the same day of the burglary. The items pawned were identified as those stolen from the residence. Through LeadsOnline, we were able to show that only an hour and a half to two hours passed between when we knew the residence was secure to when the suspect was pawning the stolen items!! Solid Intel and solid bust."

Sentimental military ring recovered – crook linked to other burglaries

"I was assigned to investigate a burglary where several articles of jewelry were stolen. Unfortunately, there was no physical or forensic evidence found at the scene when the crime scene was processed, nor were there any witnesses located to aid in identifying a suspect. I researched LeadsOnline, as I do in ALL of my cases, and I found a transaction at a local gold buying center that documented and photographed the sale of a valuable and sentimental military ring that was stolen from my victim. I was able to not only recover the property, but I also identified the suspect who was eventually linked to other similar crimes. This would not have happened without LeadsOnline!"

Burglary suspects travel across county lines to sell stolen property

"Two subjects went to a family friend's farm to dispose of some debris. The male and the female subjects were later invited into the victim's residence. Once inside, the female subject asked to use a bathroom. After leaving the bathroom, the female subject went directly into the victim's bedroom while she was being occupied in another part of the residence by the white male subject. $4,500 worth of jewelry was stolen during the incident. The following day the victim contacted law enforcement and reported the theft. The two suspects were checked through the LeadsOnline database. Search of LeadsOnline revealed that approximately one hour after leaving the victim's residence both subjects sold the stolen jewelry in another county adjacent to our jurisdiction. Both suspects were arrested, charged with the theft and have since pled guilty in Hardin County Circuit Court on felony charges."

Retirement community security guard burglarizes residents

"I was assigned a case where jewelry was being stolen out of residences' at a retirement community. After talking to management and questioning people who had access to the residences, I completed a search on LeadsOnline and developed a good suspect. I made contact with management of the retirement community and questioned them about the individual. Management advised the individual was an employee of the retirement community who worked as a security guard and had access to all of the residences at the facility. Management had left off the individual because they did not think about the security guard position when they gave me a list of the employees that I wanted to question. The security guards at the facility get alerts when residents go out of town and request their residences to be checked while they are gone or request not to check the residence when they are out of town. The security guard would get a list of the residences where the homeowners were out of town and would then commit burglaries to the residences. After a LeadsOnline search, I was able to recover large amounts of stolen jewelry and a large coin collection that was stolen by the suspect. The suspect was interviewed and confessed to all of the burglaries. Without LeadsOnline, I would not have been able to identify the suspect and later be able to recover the stolen items. Thanks again LeadsOnline for all your help!!!"

"In February, I worked a burglary of a home in which multiple items were taken to include an iMac computer, jewelry, coins, computer equipment, and other collectable items. Using LeadsOnline, I located the iMac computer, which led me to the suspect, who confessed and returned a few items.

Total taken was $19,215, and I recovered $1,900 worth or property. We are awaiting a trial or a plea on this case.

Nursing home employee identified as suspect in jewelry theft

"On December 10 I received a burglary investigation from a nursing home in my jurisdiction. The complainant stated that someone had been removing jewelry from her bedroom while she was gone. She started noticing the jewelry missing in October going until December 7 when she reported it. During that time the complainant's family contacted the manager of the nursing home, and made him aware of the incidents. On December 7, the manager placed a "nanny cam" inside of the complainant's apartment, as well as a plain gold ring in her jewelry box. Later that afternoon the video captured a female nurse aid rooting through the complainant's jewelry box. She then removed several items of jewelry, and concealed them on her person. The next day the manager reviewed the tape and identified the employee. Her name was then given to me, and I then checked her through LeadsOnline. The results were astonishing. It revealed that she had visited the same shop six times during the months of November and December. I went to that shop, and he still had the items that she had most recently brought in. I photographed those items, showed them to the complainant, and she positively identified the items. Also recovered from the Pawn Shop was the plain gold wedding band that was planted by the nursing home manager. A warrant was then issued for the employee's arrest. Without LeadsOnline, this crime would have been a lot harder to solve. I would have never been able to find out where she had taken the items, and they probably would have been melted down if I had not located the jewelry in a timely fashion. Thank you again!"

Police return stolen silver flatware, giving the victim a happy start in 2013

"Near the first of December we received word from a very elderly female that she was the victim of a theft. 'Ms. Mary' said she just couldn't believe someone would steal her 71 piece sterling silver flatware set, but she had searched her house high and low and couldn't find it anywhere. She went onto say that she had used the set for a Labor Day family gathering and that was the last time she had remembered seeing it. I asked the victim if she had a possible list of suspects for me to check into, and she said that she had always been raised to not say an unkind word about anyone unless she knew for certain they were bad. I was able to assure 'Ms. Birdy' I had a TOP SECRET database that I could check and the only people who would know she had even mentioned a name would be her, me, and the Good Lord. 'Ms. Birdy' then named off about 15 people who had been in her home since Labor Day. Most folks she named were grandchildren, but a few were people she and her husband had been trying to help feed, cloth, and give shelter to during these tough economic times. I checked the names on LeadsOnline and didn't receive any usable results. Toward the end of December, just before leaving for the New Year holiday, I decided to check on 'Ms. Birdy's' case one more time, but this time doing a broader search. Wouldn't you know it, just two days before Thanksgiving one of the men 'Ms. Birdy' and her husband had given shelter to, and who was also a member of their church, had sold a 71 piece sterling silver flatware set to a local precious metal dealer. Thanks Leads Online for again clearing one of my many cases and for giving 'Ms. Birdy' a belated Christmas and a surely better 2013!"

"With information from LeadsOnline I was able to locate and return seven rings stolen from a 91-year-old victim. The victim was helping a young lady who was down on her luck and pregnant. The female took advantage of the victim, and stole between nine and 12 rings from her, pawning or selling each one. LeadsOnline allowed me to locate one specific ring by description, which led to locating several others pawned by my suspect.

Handyman really cleans up, and makes off employer's property

"I am currently assigned to the detectives division as the Accident Investigator. I don't usually get assigned too many thefts or burglaries, but when I do, I use LeadsOnline. Recently I was assigned a burglary case where the victim had lost her husband a few months prior and decided that she needed to hire a handyman to do honey do's around her house. She placed an ad in the local newspaper and hired someone after reviewing several applications and conducting interviews. He was the ideal worker. He cut grass and reorganized her garage. Little did the victim know that she was slowly getting ripped off. The victim had placed a miter saw on Craigslist and when she had a potential buyer she discovered the saw was missing. The victim suspected the handyman because he had access to her garage where the saw was taken from. I ran his name in LeadsOnline and received hits on his name for 35 items in the previous 60 days. The victim was ecstatic when we were able to retrieve several of her stolen family heirlooms and keepsakes that belonged to her late husband. While the victim and I were checking the pawnshops, we discovered several other items she had not yet realized were missing. Thanks to LeadsOnline, I was able to go further back in time and find that he pawned 65 items since he was hired. In all, the victim was able to get most of her property back and could not be happier. Thanks to LeadsOnline this widow can still hold onto a part of her life that was taken away."

Police use LeadsOnline to locate suspect in $166,000 theft from coin shop

"I received a complaint from the owner of a local coin shop in reference to jewelry stolen from the business. According to management, a recent inventory was conducted, resulting in locating over $166,000 worth of jewelry missing. During the investigation it was determined that a prior employee was a person of interest. I learned that over the past few months the former employee had been frequenting the store. On each visit, she would ask to use the upstairs restroom where the jewelry was stored. At this point, the first investigative tool used was LeadsOnline. The LeadsOnline search resulted in locating over $10,000 worth of stolen jewelry. The stolen jewelry was then recovered and returned to the business. Based on the LeadsOnline search, a warrant was issued for the suspect."

One hit leads detectives to uncover thousands in stolen constructions equipment

"While conducting my daily check on LeadsOnline, I came across a stolen gas powered air compressor valued at $1200. The compressor was stolen from a construction site just hours before being pawned by the suspect. I contacted the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office and advised them of the item being recovered. I was later contacted by a Deputy who advised that this case and the suspect interview led to several more construction site thefts being solved and the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen generators, compressors and tools. The suspect was arrested and confessed to all counts charged."

BOLO on stolen property leads Illinois police to car burglary suspect

"I received an email from LeadsOnline about a "Hit". The offender brought in items that were reported stolen from a vehicle burglary. I then checked the suspect's activity through LeadsOnline to see if he pawned anything else. There was an iPhone, but there were no reports of any thefts or burglaries where an iPhone was stolen. I then contacted Apple Security and gave them the Serial number. With that serial number, Apple contacted the registered owner of the device and advised them to contact me. The owner advised that sometime in August or September the iPhone was stolen from her parked vehicle, but she never reported it."

Online law enforcement system helps police recover stolen tools

"I was recently transferred an investigation where an older gentleman was using a contractor to perform work on a residence he owned. The victim fell ill and wasn't able to monitor the job site for over a month. When he returned, he found that the contractor had abandoned the project and taken over $2,000 worth of tools the victim provided the contractor with to do the work. Upon searching LeadsOnline, I found all the tools reported by the victim and many more that he didn't even realize were taken. All the tools were recovered and given back to the victim. I just want to express how beneficial LeadsOnline has been since deploying it with our department. Great concept that has become the norm in Law Enforcement, thanks for your services."

Image uploaded to LeadsOnline helps Florida police find stolen ring

"A victim had her wedding ring stolen from her home by a guest, but she didn't realize the ring was stolen when it happened because she was in the hospital. When the victim realized the ring was stolen, it was past the 30-day hold and the secondhand dealer sold the ring. Leads played a part in this because the picture of the stolen ring was uploaded into LeadsOnline by the secondhand dealer, and it was good enough to use as evidence in this case."

"I ran a search through LeadsOnline of a possible suspect from a burglary. The search hit on a TV that was pawned in Aurora. The TV was the same make and model as the one stolen in the burglary. This property was recovered and identified by the victim as her TV. Even though the victim did not have the serial number, the make/model and the fact that the suspect pawned the item shortly after the theft was enough to recover the item."

"A victim reported he had two rings stolen by a known suspect. The suspect's information was entered into LeadsOnline by name and nothing was located. Fifteen days after the reported theft, the suspect was checked again by her driver's license number. On this search, LeadsOnline indicated a positive hit. The hit showed that the suspect pawned the rings eight days after they were stolen. The rings were located at the provided location, and the victim was notified. After the victim arrived at our Police Station and identified the rings, the suspect was charged with two counts of theft and two receiving stolen property offenses. Leads Online has yet again saved our department time in investigations and stability in prosecution of these types of offenses."

Housekeeping employee steals jewelry from elderly

"I was working a theft of jewelry case that occurred in a nursing home, and one of the elderly victims mentioned a housekeeping employee that she thought acted suspiciously around the times of the thefts. I had no other leads in the case and had no serial numbers to run on LeadsOnline, but I decided to run the name of the employee. I received multiple recent hits on her pawning jewelry and at least one of the jewelry items was a good enough description to make a match on paper, so I went and recovered three pieces of jewelry that a victim confirmed were hers and was able to obtain an arrest warrant on the housekeeping employee to file the case. Without LeadsOnline this case may have been inactivated without an arrest or would have been a lot more difficult to file."

Clinton Police have recovered four stolen guns and recovered stolen property from a neighboring community. We require, by ordinance, that stores take pictures of jewelry they buy. Using the picture, a victim was able to identify her jewelry even though it was melted down after the required hold time by the store. A warrant was obtained for the suspect in that case. Best of all, the department has made the storing and retrieval of pawn slips much more efficient, and at a minimal cost."

Daytime burglars identified via thumbprints despite providing false IDs

"During a one week span in mid-October, Canton Township, Michigan, had multiple daytime home invasions where jewelry was taken. LeadsOnline assisted with locating said jewelry, but the suspects were providing false ID at the pawn shop. Thumbprint information obtained from LeadsOnline matched the home invasions thumbprints, and the two suspects were actually arrested while returning to the pawn shop with more stolen jewelry. Victims identified their items as well. Without the assistance from LeadsOnline, this case would not have progressed as quickly as it did. This is another success story and law enforcement benefited with the coordination from LeadsOnline."

LeadsOnline pays off for a small agency with first login

"We are a small agency with only two full time officers. It was time consuming and costly for us to travel to our nearest pawn shops, which are over 30 miles away. We would spend all day checking receipts and inventory. We have been looking at purchasing LeadsOnline for over a year, and after a rash of burglaries, we decided to purchase the program. Upon our first search, approximately three minutes after our first login, we found two items from our recent burglaries. After several search warrants were issued, we were able to clear three burglaries and five thefts. We are confident that we will solve more crimes associated with the three arrested individuals."

However, now having LeadsOnline available at my fingertips, it has aided me and my agency in solving several crimes over the past few years. In fact, I have personally solved a high dollar jewelry theft case AND a high dollar jewelry burglary case... just in the past week alone. Even better? I have been able to recover the jewelry prior to it being "lost" forever. Thank you, LeadsOnline. You make my job easier and more fulfilling.

Now that the metal thefts are getting popular due to the increase in the price of standard and precious metals I am now utilizing the Metal Theft Investigations System that is offered to solve some of the metal theft cases I have.

Apple laptop recovered for college student

"While investigating a residential burglary in Chicago, I found out that the neighbor of my victim was seen knocking on the victim's door prior to the burglary. An initial search of LeadsOnline and interview of the person of interest yielded negative results. The victim was a student who had just purchased her Apple laptop and was not in a financial position to get another. Several days later, a LeadsOnline search revealed that our person of interest pawned the computer on the opposite side of the city in an attempt to cover his tracks. Without LeadsOnline, this would not have been possible. The person of interest was subsequently convicted of burglary and would not have been without the LeadsOnline system!

Smart detective work – instant results with LeadsOnline

"When working a recent burglary, a victim gave a serial number, size and description of a stolen television. The TV was entered on GCIC. Several days later, I was contacted by another Police agency and advised that they had stopped a vehicle with a TV in it that matched my entered serial number, but the TV was a different size. I remembered the victim had stated he bought the TV from a pawn shop several months ago. I entered LeadsOnline and ran the serial numbers the timeframe of the last two years. I immediately got a return and verified that the victim had reported the wrong size on the TV as verified by the pawn ticket when the pawn shop purchased the TV. As a result, the TV was verified and confiscated. Without LeadsOnline, the verification on the TV size could have taken a while.

House sitter turned crook caught with LeadsOnline

"A family arrived back home after a week of fun on vacation. They had trusted their daughter's boyfriend to tend to their family pet and house while they were gone. They were notified by this model boyfriend that while he was gone he noticed that the house had been burglarized. Oddly enough, the suspected burglar only wanted the flat screen TV and Xbox gaming console. Officers arrived and took the report from the boyfriend. They noticed that the lad was positive that the burglar entered and exited through an existing ajar window. Looking at the window, the suspected burglar was nice enough to place the screen back on before leaving. After seeing the behavior of the "boyfriend," Detectives were called and we thought Leads Online would be a great place to start to save us some time. We received a positive hit on both items stolen from the home, and had been pawned by a male of the exact identity of the resident boyfriend.

"I was working an investigation for a breaking and entering case with thefts of lawn maintenance products. There were no leads to work with and no serial numbers for any of the property.

Thousands in stolen jewelry recovered; detectives search Texas and Florida using LeadsOnline

"I was recently assigned a theft case in which a woman working for a house cleaning company was suspected of stealing $10,000 in jewelry. My initial LeadsOnline search with the suspect's name revealed 38 pawn transactions within the proceeding 60 days.

I subsequently broadened my search and found that since this same suspect has 98 pawn transactions in the past year with an estimated street value of approximately $80,000. A second agency has now contacted me with another victim of this same suspect. We expect many more victims to be identified and several other agencies in at least two counties to become involved in this expanding investigation. LeadsOnline has been a HUGE help to solve this case. I have just issued three arrest warrants (1 Felony / 2 Class "A" Misdemeanors) against this suspect who has reportedly fled to Florida... but she can't hide from you guys there..."

"We had been hit with a series of 14 residential break-ins when I was introduced to LeadsOnline by a detective from our local Sheriff's Office.

Michigan law enforcement uses LeadsOnline to solve jewelry theft in minutes

"Suspect stole necklace from retail store valued at approximately $2000, ran to his vehicle and fled. Within 15 minutes, officer 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 changed his story continuously 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!"

Georgia jurors convict suspect based on LeadsOnline evidence

"The victim returned home after work and found his home burglarized of a flat screen TV and 80 dollars in cash. He made a report that evening and it was assigned to me the next day. I was able to talk with the victim on the following day when he gave me numbers on the TV and several names of persons that he suspected may have committed the crime. After getting off the phone with the victim, I signed on LeadsOnline, ran the numbers and the ticket that came up showed the suspect to be one of the persons that the victim had given me. He had actually pawned the TV at 12:30 pm on the day of the burglary a few hours before it was reported. I printed the LeadsOnline ticket, making it a part of the case file and obtained a felony warrant for the suspect. He was tried in Walker County Superior Court and found guilty of the burglary. The only physical evidence that was submitted at trail was the original pawn ticket from the store and the LeadsOnline print out that I had made. I did have to explain how we used LeadsOnline in investigations. After the trial and convictions which the suspect received 5 years, we polled the jury and they told us that the LeadsOnline was a big factor in their choice to convict him. So yes LeadsOnline really works well we have recovered a lot of property using LeadsOnline!"

All in the family; victim's cousin identified in burglary by detective using LeadsOnline

"I was giving a burglary report that occurred two days earlier. I had been given two suspects names for the burglary, but had no proof, nor any witnesses. I was thinking on how to best to work the case when it came to me to check the new LeadsOnline system that we have. I put in the description of my stolen property (two Craftsman Tools) and then it came back with a match to a local pawn shop. One of the tools was pawned on the day of the burglary and believe it or not, my victim's cousin was the person who pawned it. With this information I was able to get a warrant for the arrest of this subject. He was not listed as one of the two suspects in the burglary report. This person was not even thought of as a suspect, and as my victim said, "He's my cousin". With the arrest of this person I was able not to only solve the one burglary, but I was able to clear nine other cases which cleared a total of over 30,000 in stolen property. All I can say is LeadsOnline worked for me."

Tiffany jewelry found on LeadsOnline; far more sanitary than the other method for searching

"The jewelry store Tiffany and Co called us to report that they had just discovered that somebody from their cleaning crew stole several items from a back storeroom. They noticed that some items were missing from a storage bin so they reviewed the surveillance video and it showed the cleaning lady taking some items out of this bin and placing them in her jacket. The next day they confronted her and she admitted to stealing several bracelets, earrings and key chains all worth $10,900. When the Deputy arrived to investigate she gave him all of the items except 2. She said that she thought she dropped them at a Circle K earlier that morning. She went to jail for theft and I went to SEVERAL Circle Ks and looked through numerous trash cans. I ended up taking out all of the trash piece by piece and no luck. The next day I checked LeadsOnline, and guess what? She had pawned the 2 missing items the same day she stole them!

Police use LeadsOnline to put the brakes on auto thefts, burglaries from brake repair shops

"Numerous tools had been stolen from Brake Check stores. There were no suspects or leads. The tools were entered into our department pawn database with no success on hits. We developed a name of a suspect and ran pawn searches. Not only did we find the tools stolen recently, but also the ones stolen in burglaries four months earlier as well. All were dutifully recorded in LeadsOnline. We can more than likely clear 11 Burglaries, 2 auto thefts and one burglary of a vehicle all thanks to LeadsOnline."

Detectives solve crimes right after rollcall using LeadsOnline for first time

"San Antonio detectives logged in to LeadsOnline this morning after roll call and we conducted computer-based LeadsOnline training. Detective Robert Sholund was checking stolen property on cases which have been assigned to him. At 12:30 p.m. today, he got a hit on a Craftsman Electric Grinder stolen last month. LeadsOnline has begun to prove its value. As I was typing this, he just got hits on two digital cameras taken in a burglary of a business."

Cheyenne Police use LeadsOnline to immediately solve two Part 1 crimes

"I wanted to send this message to let you know how the LeadsOnline system has already helped us in two investigations. The first case involves a grand larceny from a Wyoming Game and Fish state office building. I had been working the case for over two months and had not recovered any of the $14,000 worth of property that was taken. I had developed suspects, but had no solid evidence linking them to the crime. The very first time I used the LeadsOnline system I found one of my suspects had pawned a $600.00 computer that was taken from the Game and Fish building. This computer was recovered and I now have the link I need to pursue charges against the suspect.

The second case involves a suspect our department had been trying to locate for at least three weeks. The person is suspected in multiple grand larceny cases. By using the LeadsOnline system, we found a possible current address for the suspect and we believe this will assist us in finding him. All of the detectives are very pleased that this system is in place and we see the LeadsOnline system as being a great benefit to our department."

Oklahoma construction theft case solved due to LeadsOnline coverage

"We solved a case of tools missing from a construction site. We were able to determine by using LeadsOnline that some of the tools were pawned locally, and some in surrounding jurisdictions. We never would have known about the tools pawned outside of our jurisdiction without the broad geographic reach that LeadsOnline provides. The system is user-friendly and allows for easy monitoring of our local stores, as well as those in other areas. Thieves will have fewer and fewer places to hide."

Computer stolen in vehicle burglary found by Kansas detective using LeadsOnline

"I ran a report search using LeadsOnline and located a computer that was stolen from a vehicle burglary. The computer was pawned a few days later and the suspect erased the hard drive in an effort to get around the security code. The suspect then entered her name as the user on the computer and downloaded a trial version of windows to make the computer appear to be hers. I contacted the owner of the computer who stated she did not know the individual who pawned her computer. I recovered the computer and identified a suspect in the case. Without LeadsOnline, I would have never been able to identify a suspect in this case or recover this computer."

"El Paso Police were investigating a burglary of habitation. Witnesses reported seeing a suspect hanging around the area just before the burglary. Witness description led officers and detectives repeat offenders that strongly matched the description given by witnesses. Upon checking LeadsOnline for pawn history on these suspects, it was discovered that one particular suspect had pawned a distinct and rare ring which had been pawned on the day of the burglary. Because the ring was so rare, the victim was able to identify the ring as one of the items taken from the burglary. Thanks to LeadsOnline, we have put a repeat burglar away, AGAIN!!"

Widow's jewelry recovered. Disabled son's caregiver arrested.

"I recently had a case where a 67 year old widow was the victim of a burglary. She immediately suspected her son's care giver. Her son suffers from Cerebral palsy. Several items of jewelry were taken in the burglary. She stated the only things she was really concerned with were her and her husband's wedding bands. She stated the rings were purchased in the 70's at a cost of approximately $900 for hers and $750 for his. She stated she did have the rings appraised several years ago and the values were $5,000 and $3,800. A quick and easy check of LeadsOnline showed that the subject/care giver involved had been pawning small items at a local pawn shop but nothing related to this case. He had pawned some old coins and broken pieces of jewelry along with a small ring. After talking to the victim again she stated last year she had a full length black mink coat stolen, appraised value $15,000. There was no forced entry and no arrest had ever been made. She then stated that she had recently realized that several of her deceased husband's old coins were missing. I asked about any broken jewelry and she stated she did notice that several pieces were missing but never reported it. To make a long story short the care giver was arrested, the broken jewelry at the store was recovered and was hers. The subject had not pawned the wedding bands yet as he knew they were very expensive looking and was thinking of keeping them. The wedding bands and other stolen jewelry were recovered. Also the suspect confessed and gave me the pawn shop that the mink coat was taken to. After 1 year in storage the coat was still there and the victim got her coat back too; thank you LeadsOnline."

Fort Wayne Police Department finds stolen jewelry near New Orleans

"Our city and county had been experiencing a rash of daytime residential burglaries. One of the victims interrupted the pair of bad guys while they were breaking into his home. Based on his description, we were able to develop a suspect that the victim positively identified. A week after the incident, I found one of my bad guys pawning jewelry in Jefferson Parrish, Louisiana. Taking the description of the items provided by LeadsOnline, I was able to locate an entirely different incident with a similar piece of jewelry listed as stolen. I then contacted the Jefferson Parrish Sheriff's Office, who was able to locate, hold and photograph the items. Twenty minutes after getting those photos, my victim, and one of her co-workers, positively identified two of the three items sold in Louisiana. Thanks to LeadsOnline and the Jefferson Parrish Sheriff's Office, I'm able to get a good charge on a bad guy, and most importantly, get property back where it belongs."

CSI could not have done better than Cincinnati Police

"I received a burglary investigation, on which another detective had already done the crime scene. She stated she did not find any prints or DNA at the scene, but recovered a coat button from the window sill where the suspect(s) had entered. The suspect(s) closed the window on the coat button after climbing through the window, not knowing it was there.

The victim gave me the serial number from the TV that was stolen in the offense and I entered it into LeadsOnline. I immediately got a hit on a subject. My partner and I went out and located the subject at his family member's house, arresting him on Receiving Stolen Property. When we got ready to transport him back to our district, I asked if he wanted to bring a coat. His girlfriend grabbed his coat for him and it turned out that it was missing a button on the front pocket. The button we recovered was distinctive and matched the rest on the coat. The suspect gave a full confession and a name for another suspect. Without LeadsOnline, we never would have found that suspect."

Vehicle burglary case, among others, solved with LeadsOnline

"I have only been using your program for about 8 or 9 months, but so far I have been able to solve several burglaries and thefts thanks to LeadsOnline. Officers of the Shreveport Police Department responded to a vehicle burglary in which a craftsman tool set was stolen from the vehicle. Upon their initial investigation it was learned that a neighbor had witnessed the burglary and provided officers with a license plate number. The case was then assigned to the Property Crimes Unit. Upon being assigned the case I ran the tag number and found that the car had been reported as unauthorized use against the owner's son. I ran the son's pawn history through LeadsOnline and found that he pawned the exact same tool set within an hour of the burglary. When presented with the facts that I had his pawn history, license number, and an eye witness, the son confessed to the vehicle burglary and was charged. The fact that I was able to locate his pawn history helped resolve this case and get the tool set back to its rightful owner."

Multiple jewelry burglaries solved via LeadsOnline

"I just wanted to share a story of a number of recent burglaries that have occurred in our city (Pharr, Texas) targeting Winter Texan trailer parks. Numerous burglaries were reported in the past few months and with very little leads. A couple of weeks ago I received information of a possible female suspect scene leaving the area on a bike from a crime scene. I recalled an elderly female that was residing in our city that was always on a bike and a suspect to a theft of a wallet in a trailer park. I immediately ran the name of the female on LeadsOnline and found that she had pawned off a number of pieces of jewelry to a pawn shop in our city. I assigned the cases and all the information I had on this suspect to Inv. Quilantan. He immediately went to the pawn shop and placed a hold on the items and photographed them. Five burglaries were solved that day including one where over $30,000 worth of jewelry was taken by this female. The female was picked up within a day and gave a confession on all the burglaries she committed in our city and one in Weslaco, Texas. LeadsOnline has still shown our department to be an excellent tool in solving crimes. I would like to thank you guys and the good work done by my investigator (Juan Quilantan)."

NYPD uses LeadsOnline to get the truth from suspect

"A victim had hired an exterminator to treat for bedbugs. He also asked the exterminator to treat his father's house. Although there were no eyewitnesses, he proceeded to remove jewelry and electronics from both apartments. We had the opportunity to interrogate him with little success. While under interrogation, another co-worker entered his name on LeadsOnline and produced a positive hit! We then went to the pawn shop and retrieved the stolen property. He was appropriately charged with grand larceny."

Illinois police solve crimes using automated pawn system LeadsOnline

"Well I must say this site has been very useful! I just signed up last week for the free 30-day trial period. I received a call and was walked through the program. Ten minutes after hanging up the phone I began playing with the program. Immediately I found items that were pawned from a residential burglary here in Robinson, Illinois. That led to a suspect and three days later two search warrants were issued and several other items were recovered from a previous residential burglary. Of course an arrest was also made. Without this site the case more than likely would have never been solved. That made the Chief of Police and myself strong believers right off the bat. So we are looking at making the program a day to day tool for our department!!!!"

North Carolina law enforcement investigators share information with other states with LeadsOnline

"Police have been using LeadsOnline for several years now in Fayetteville, North Carolina and have had tremendous success recovering thousands of dollars stolen property. I was able to help two South Carolina counties recover musical equipment stolen from numerous churches then brought to Fayetteville, North Carolina and pawned. That suspect was apprehended and convicted when he was given a plea agreement in South Carolina. That same suspect was also charged by our agency for similar charges and pled to those charges also. I have officers from other agencies that inquired about LeadsOnline and how it helped our agency and advised them to use the trial time and also sent them copies of our City Ordinance. I have been extremely impressed with what LeadsOnline provides to assist Law Enforcement with numerous types of crimes."

LeadsOnline works while investigators take well-deserved time off

"Our investigator went out on vacation for a week. In a small agency there are not many options so that left me to cover for his investigative case load. As luck would have it, two separate theft offenses came in during that time. Much to my surprise (only because most criminals know not to pawn) both were solved in a matter of minutes using LeadsOnline. The ease of use, the accuracy of the information and the contacts it provides are priceless to our agency. I was able to place the items on hold and get them released to the victim in a few short days. LeadsOnline is well worth the cost for any agency. It reduces the need to travel to every pawn shop around."

Rapid pawnshop recovery in Oregon burglary investigation

"A 95 year old female had her apartment broken into and close to $5,000 in jewelry and other items were stolen. The victim had gone to the hospital the week prior and the residence was unoccupied when the burglary occurred. The victim and her daughter suspected the housekeeper who was employed with the senior community the victim lived in was possibly involved. The patrol officer who handled the investigation was told that the housekeeper just recently hooked up with a new boyfriend. Officer Barringer was able to identify the boyfriend by finding an Oregon State Police no insurance tow report from the weekend prior, where the female suspect had her vehicle towed. Officer Barringer ran the boyfriend using LeadsOnline and found that he had sold $1,600 in gold to a local business in Medford, Oregon. Detectives followed up on the investigation which led to the recovery of the victim's jewelry from the business and after a consent search at the suspect's residence the remainder of the victim's property was recovered. The suspects admitted to their involvement and it was determined the housekeeper had left the outside window of the victim's apartment open in order for her boyfriend to make entry. The housekeeper knew the victim had gone to the hospital and the residence was unoccupied. Thanks to LeadsOnline this case was solved within two days, where using the old "hand check" system it would have taken weeks possibly months. LeadsOnline also allowed for officers to follow up quickly on this investigation and because of that all of the victim's property was recovered."

Detective finds stolen precious metals using LeadsOnline in North Carolina

"I recently worked a theft case, involving stolen jewelry. I was able to locate the stolen items through LeadsOnline. Not only did I find my suspect and recover the items, but I also located pawn tickets where my suspect pawned the items, then bought them back, before selling them again to the shop. This led to significant additional charges. Without the easy use of LeadsOnline, this case would have long ago been cold."

Investigators share information via LeadsOnline in cross jurisdictional investigation

"A suspect was arrested and confessed to several car dealership burglaries where he targeted the safes. After making bond, he vanished. He was flagged as a person of interest in LeadsOnline at that time. Seven months later, I received pawn hits on this subject near the Mexico border. Those law enforcement agencies were notified of the pawn hit and also of his background regarding dealership burglaries. They advised that they had several car dealership burglaries over the last few months and the m.o. was identical to this same individual. They were able to track this subject down and arrest him on several outstanding warrants. He subsequently confessed to dealership burglaries in that area as well. His whereabouts would still be unknown had he not been flagged as a person of interest in LeadsOnline."

Kentucky investigators improve solvability factors with LeadsOnline

"Fantastic investigative tool! Our most recent success involved a stolen television. Description in the report was a 26" Viore flat screen. That's it. No serial number, model number or suspect info was available. Normally would have had a low solvability number. Ran just the description through LeadsOnline and received a notification that someone had pawned a 26" Viore flat screen on the same day that it was stolen from our victim. That information led us to the suspect's front door, an admission and a very happy citizen of Christian County, KY. It would not have been possible without the quick, easy access of LeadsOnline. Victim in this case could not believe how efficient the process was. Neither could the perpetrator. Thanks again!!"

Telecommunications equipment stolen from vehicle found by detective using LeadsOnline

"While investigating a burglary of a vehicle, I used LeadsOnline and searched for numerous fiber optic cable analyzers that my complainant had serial numbers for. I received a hit on one and informed my complainant that I had only found one analyzer for him. I picked up the analyzer case from the pawn shop and later met with the complainant. When he opened the case he informed me that each component inside the case had its own serial number and that was why it appeared that I only found one item. He then proceeded to inform me that all of the fiber optic analyzers were there and that I had just recovered $31,000 worth of equipment for him. Thanks LeadsOnline."

A small sampling of success with LeadsOnline

"Throughout this year, our relationship with LeadsOnline has been great. Recently, Det. Dunn had several success stories that he presented to you. During the course of two of my investigations from this month, I was able to identify property stolen during a burglary and a theft. The burglary was solved because the suspect was pawning the items the same day as the burglary. He sold an Xbox and DVDs to two separate stores in order to avoid detection. There's an arrest warrant being issued in that case. The other case involves an elderly victim that has been victimized by his family. His granddaughters have been stealing from him and pawning the items for the past year. We were able to recover a metal detector and tools for him, and then make arrests. There are other cases from 2011 that led to two arrests of family members stealing $30,000 worth of jewelry. The suspects were husband and wife who were stealing from a family friend. LeadsOnline helped locate jewelry that was pawned in other jurisdictions and led to two arrests. These are just three of the cases that are fresh in my mind where LeadsOnline helped solve a case. We greatly appreciate all that you do and it has been a great success."

Our agency has recovered over $7,500 worth of our residents' stolen property over these few months. We had a total of seven victims who had their property returned to them because of this service. The staff of LeadsOnline is great and is always willing to lend a helping hand. If you don't have this tool yet, don't hesitate and get it NOW!!!! LeadsOnline, I thank you and our residents thank you!"

Who knew what we missed before LeadsOnline!

"While talking to LeadsOnline, I found out about the NCIC report that contained a potential hit for a stolen item. After a few minutes, I learned how to review the full report for our agency. We had over 1,600 potential hits that had never been reviewed… Who knew we were missing so much? After going through most of them, I have been able to locate around 15 items that had been pawned. As of July 11, 2012, I have only 25 hits left to look at and already noticed 2 more items that appear to be ours. Thank you for the detailed instructions and checking on us from time to time."

Yep, it's just that easy

"A Nevada, Mo., resident recently reported a stolen laptop. I ran a quick search through LeadsOnline, found the item, and returned it to its rightful owner. The crook was arrested and is currently awaiting trial. The crook never knew what hit him!"

Case after case, LeadsOnline brings it

"LeadsOnline has recently assisted in two of my investigations. A suspect stole multiple items and tried to avoid detection by selling them at multiple stores. Through LeadsOnline we were able to track down the items pawned. A warrant is currently out for his arrest. Another case yielded shocking results when an elderly victim's granddaughters stole $30,000 worth the property. LeadsOnline made our efforts in recovering his property a reality and led to the arrests of the family members. We greatly appreciate all that you do. LeadsOnline helps solve cases for us on a daily basis."

Ain't friendship beautiful?

"In the past three weeks our department has recovered $25,000 in property. Since our first trial with LeadsOnline in 2010, we have had a significant amount of success. Without LeadsOnline, our success rate and recovery of property would be much different. Thank you."

The ring wants to be found

"One of our deputies took a phone call from a female who was wishing to report two wedding bands missing from her residence. She had seen the bands three days prior. The victim provided authorities with a list of individuals who had been in her home over the previous three day period. The officer searched each individual's name through LeadsOnline and within minutes he knew where the rings had been sold and who had stolen them. Within a few hours, the deputy had recovered the stolen rings and made an arrest for grand larceny. The use of LeadsOnline led us directly to the crook. LeadsOnline is an incredible investigative tool."

There's nowhere to hide. Seriously, there is nowhere to hide.

"In one week, I visited four pawn shops in three different counties to recover property from several different thefts. The property ranged from jewelry to lawn care equipment. LeadsOnline aided me in being able to recover the stolen property, allowing me to bring charges against five different criminals. They are now facing charges that would not have been possible without LeadsOnline. LeadsOnline has helped us bring local criminals to justice by identifying property that was stolen and sold outside of our jurisdiction. When we are able to return property to victims and have the opportunity to see relief on their faces, it's a tremendous feeling. Thank you LeadsOnline for being such a great service."

LeadsOnline does it again

"A resident at a local elderly care facility reported her diamond engagement ring was missing. We quickly matched employees' names against the LeadsOnline database. One of the employees pawned an item that resembled the description of the stolen ring. After we identified the suspect, the resident described a female nurse aid tugging on her ring as she was being placed into bed. The physical description of the nurse aid matched the suspect identified in the LeadsOnline database. The nurse aid was called in for an interview and provided a full confession. She was arrested on the spot. LeadsOnline presented vital information that aided in the arrest of the suspect. LeadsOnline does it again."

"Keep Austin Weird" ....and safe

"Several musical items had been stolen from a gentleman outside of a venue as his band was preparing for that evening's concert. It didn't take long to locate the equipment with LeadsOnline.

These crooks won't be stealing lawn equipment for a long time

"Various tools were stolen from a construction site in Shelby County, leading to the arrest of two suspects in the theft of the equipment. The items were recovered thanks to the help of LeadsOnline and the Indianapolis Police Department's Property Recovery Unit. The items have been recovered and the two crooks are awaiting trial. Without LeadsOnline, the suspects would have likely made away with the items. Thank you LeadsOnline for all that you do."

Houma detectives don't play games when it comes to protecting their citizens

"Upon entering his home, a resident of Houma realized his backdoor had been forcibly opened. As he investigated his home, he realized his PlayStation 3 had been removed, along with the controllers and several games. Moving through the home, he discovered that his childrens' Nintendo DS and PSP had also been stolen from the home. After he filed a report, we did a quick search of LeadsOnline, and we located the stolen items by matching serial numbers of the stolen game systems to those reported by the pawn shop. A few other items within the home had been stolen as well, and they were identified by the victims of the crime. Over $400 in property was obtained from the scene. A suspect has been identified, and there is a warrant currently out for his arrest. LeadsOnline does it again!"

A quick theft followed just as quickly by an arrest

"We received a report of several items stolen from a rental house owned by a local doctor. A small refrigerator, microwave, stereo, and a TV/DVD combo were taken from the rental property. Property matching the description given by the doctor was identified in Indianapolis. A subsequent interview of the suspect led to a full confession. Thanks LeadsOnline!"

Breaking & Entering, co-conspirators, and LeadsOnline... Oh my!

"I was working an investigation for a B&E with thefts of lawn maintenance products with no leads to work with and no serial numbers for any of the property. Thanks to LeadsOnline, I was not only able to locate all three pieces of property, but as result of this information, we were able to obtain a confession from a co-conspirator that was previously unknown, complete with him giving up his partner…who pawned the items! Cha-Ching!"

Investigative Assistant Lisa Mead O'Connor
Union County Sheriff's Office

10 minutes, and the case is cleared

"I was able to locate several pieces of stolen jewelry, valued at over $4,000, within 10 minutes of logging in to LeadsOnline. This evidence should be enough to get a conviction, and we will be able to recover the property for the victim!"

Caretaker tending to property, not patient

"Once again your service has paid off in spades for our agency. We recently had a case assigned to my partner, Detective Ross Breeding, involving the theft of a $6,000 ring committed by a hospice worker who was supposed to be tending to her dying patient. Apparently, she was also tending to his property as well. Thanks again, we can't imagine working without this valuable service. We use the service to track down stolen property, and also to track down crooks in other cases."

Det. Robert Warner
Seabrook Police Department
Texas

Tough lesson for this crook

"I wanted to make mention of another success story thanks to LeadsOnline. Seabrook Police Detective Ross Breeding checked the serial number of a camera stolen in a residential burglary through LeadsOnline and linked it to a suspect. The suspect was located and arrested after having been identified by a pawn shop clerk. At the time of the arrest, several hundred pieces of stolen jewelry were also impounded along with computers, electronic devices, and a plethora of other assorted small valuable items. This also cleared multiple burglary cases in the greater southern Harris county area, and resulted in several felony charges being filed against the suspect. While it may have been extra work, it is the sort of work a good police officer doesn't mind doing because it brought smiles to some of those who were victimized. Thanks to LeadsOnline, it looks like we will have more satisfying work in the future. Bad guys are getting spanked by the technology thanks to LeadsOnline".

One hit solved cases dating back eight months

"On February 7, 2012 I received a crime stoppers tip giving information about a couple scrapping air conditioner parts. I ran both names through LeadsOnline and found not only were they scrapping a large amount of copper, but they were also pawning a lot of car stereos. One of the stereos pawned was reported stolen to my department. On February 13, 2012, we began to follow this couple and caught them breaking into cars. An interview with the female helped solve cases going back to June 2011… This was all thanks to finding the stolen stereo on your site."

Burglary solved within 30 minutes

"Gautier Police Department solved a house burglary 30 minutes after receiving the police report thanks to LeadsOnline.

Evidence for 19 criminal charges on three suspects

"After a burglary was charged out, and the prosecutor's office declined to prosecute it, I was assigned to re-investigate the case. I checked all persons in the case through LeadsOnline and found that the TV taken in the burglary had been pawned. I recovered the television, completed the investigation and requested a total of 19 criminal charges on the three individuals involved. None of that would have happened if I had not found the television using LeadsOnline."

Deputy Craig Quick
Winnebago Sheriff's Department

Valuable crime-solving tool in action

"In 2011, I had a burglary case where I identified a suspect and used LeadsOnline to check the local pawn shops after the burglary. I found the suspect pawned a ring at a local shop days after the burglary. I printed the photo of the suspect and a ring that was pawned. I showed the reporting party a picture of the ring, and she identified the ring to be hers. I then tracked down the suspect, and the suspect was arrested for pawning stolen property and for burglary. The suspect was later convicted of both counts. I found that LeadsOnline is an excellent tool to use, and I recommend it to all law enforcement agencies."

Same day recovery of tools for tornado victim

"A man who had already lost his home and business in the Joplin tornados reported tools being stolen. By using LeadsOnline, I was able to recover the tools, which were pawned in another town, and I arrested the suspect the same day the tools were stolen. Thanks to LeadsOnline, the suspect who came from Illinois to help with tornado relief did not succeed in victimizing our citizen who had already suffered such a loss."

Det. Christopher Carriger

Evidence, arrest, confession. LeadsOnline makes it easy.

"An investigation into the theft of a $10,000 bracelet led to the possible identity of a suspect. A search using this extraordinary database revealed that the suspect pawned the stolen bracelet two days after the theft. I was able to recover surveillance of the transaction, but was not able to recover the bracelet because it had already been scrapped by the store. With this timely information provided by LeadsOnline, I was able to arrest the suspect and obtain a confession. We are currently working with other agencies in an effort to identify his involvement with other thefts. Thanks again for creating such a useful database."

Repeat offender caught, property returned

"In early February I used LeadsOnline to link a suspect to a case of burglary of a motor vehicle by using a serial number search. The suspect, who is a known and repeat offender, pawned a GPS that was taken during a car burglary. I was able to retrieve the GPS as well as video of the suspect when he pawned it. Charges were filed on the suspect and the elderly couple that had the GPS stolen was very pleased to get their property back. This case was solved almost immediately because of the information provided."

False report filed; boat load of time saved

"LeadsOnline saved me a boat load of work. A citizen reported several items stolen during a home invasion, including a laptop computer, iPad, camera and other electronics. I checked her name in LeadsOnline and discovered she had pawned the computer and iPad just days before making the false report. I confronted the citizen with the information found, and she confessed to making a false report for financial reasons. Thanks LeadsOnline!!!"

Property recovered for schools and churches burglarized by heroin addicts

"Schools and churches on the north and northwest side's of Chicago were being burglarized. Based on witness accounts, detectives in the Major Case Squad were able to determine a male and female suspect, and their residence was put on surveillance until they were caught in the act of burglarizing a Chicago public high school. During interviews, we learned they were heroin addicts with very little recollections of the places they had previously burglarized. Using LeadsOnline, detectives discovered proceeds from an additional seven burglaries, and we were able to recover and return a considerable amount of property to the schools and churches. Thanks for your products and services – it made our job easier."

House maid confesses with LeadsOnline evidence

"I was investigating a residential burglary in which jewelry was taken. The suspect was the maid, and she denied any knowledge or involvement in the theft. Fortunately I ran the maid's name in LeadsOnline prior to the interview and discovered she recently pawned a large amount of jewelry. When confronted with this information, she broke down and admitted to the theft. If the information provided by LeadsOnline was not available, this case would not have been solved."

Seven burglaries in 48 hours

"As a Property Crimes Detective, I was assigned seven burglaries that occured over a period of 48 hours. With no initial leads in the case, I turned to LeadsOnline hoping that the suspects would pawn the property. Eventually they pawned the stolen property and ultimately sealed their own fate. Without LeadsOnline, I most likely would not have developed any suspects. With LeadsOnline, I broke up a sophisticated burglary ring and sent two qualified convicts back to prison. I thank you, and the citizens of Orange County who were victims are grateful as well."

Suspect identified and helps break up sophisticated burglary ring

"I use this system on a daily basis as part of my investigative process, and it is one of the best tools I have at my disposal! Recently, Detective David Spurgeon and I used LeadsOnline to research a suspect we had developed while investigating residential burglaries. Upon running a 60 day search, we discovered the suspect had sold 98 items in the previous 60 days! We also found he had sold a total of 141 items from January, 2011, through September, 2011. Some of the recent items he pawned were taken in a burglary just the day before. Once we located the suspect and interviewed him, we learned that he was the go between with other suspects who are doing residential burglaries on the Westside of Indianapolis. Without LeadsOnline we would have had a more difficult time locating this stolen property and identifying the people involved in these crimes. Thanks, again, LeadsOnline!"

Rifle recovered five years after the crime

"I recovered yet another piece of stolen property using LeadsOnline. This time it was a stolen rifle that was taken during a residential burglary back in 2006.

Keep up the good work!"

One hit on LeadsOnline cleared multiple burglaries

"I received notification of a serial number match that I had entered into the LeadsOnline system. Confirmation was made that this was the same camera that had been reported stolen in a residential burglary case. In researching for the female who pledged this camera in a local business, it was determined that there were 110 transactions from her over the past eight months. Comparisons of the property listed in her transactions and property previously reported stolen to our agency resulted in additional burglary cases being cleared and also led to the identification of a male subject who had been committing these burglaries and using the female to sell the stolen goods. LeadsOnline – YOU ROCK with this program!"

Fresh leads in a cold case

"In July 2011, with the NCIC hit, I received notification of a pawned laptop computer that was taken in a residential burglary in April 2011. I recovered the laptop and returned it to the owner the same day. The owner was very surprised and happy. The defendant is still on the run and our Department would not have had a clue about this guy if it were not for LeadsOnline. Turns out he also has multiple unrelated warrants and may be involved in several other similar crimes. Thank you so much!"

Multi-state theft ring comes to an end in Illinois

"An initial investigation into several snowmobiles being pawned at a pawn shop in Round Lake Beach, Illinois, led detectives from the McHenry County Sheriff's Office and Round Lake Beach Police Department to a multi-state theft ring thanks to LeadsOnline. After running a search through LeadsOnline, it was determined that the suspects were pawning snowmobiles and boats in Illinois, Iowa, Colorado, and Wyoming. Upon further investigation, it was learned that the snowmobiles and boats were stolen from Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Thanks to LeadsOnline, the detectives were able to put together a large-scale investigation that involved charges from several states."

Sentimental and invaluable jewelry recovered

"My victim took on the task of caring for her dying mother the last few months of her life in her home, but she needed help. She had a regular handyman help with the upkeep of her house, and she paid his wife to act as a caretaker, helping care for her mother. After the victim's mother died on January 4th, she began the task of going through her keepsakes. The victim first noticed the ring that her mother always wore as missing. She also noticed her own wedding ring missing from her own bedroom that she had put away when her husband passed away. I did a search through LeadsOnline and learned that the female caretaker had pawned over 20 items of jewelry belonging to the victim and her deceased mother. The victim did not even realize that much of her mother's jewelry was missing. The pawn shop cooperated with the investigation, but regrettably, only a portion of the jewelry was recovered. The caretaker was arrested and charged with felony theft. It was learned that she had been stealing from the dying mother and the victim over the course of three months. Luckily, the victim recovered her wedding ring and some of her mom's jewelry, which all had sentimental value above and beyond the appraisal value."

Crimes with no leads solved on first day using LeadsOnline

"On the very first day of activation, our investigators were able to solve a burglary that was 10 months old with no leads by finding stolen property that had been pawned. The suspect was also arrested for other crimes that he admitted to under interrogation. We were also able to solve a year-old theft by locating a stolen camcorder that had been pawned, as well as computer equipment stolen by a company employee and kept in pawn for several months. He had no idea how we found him and was very shocked. Thanks for a great search/investigative tool."

Stolen power tools not gone for long

"In late January, we took a theft report for some tools stolen out of a work truck. Two weeks later, I ran a query in LeadsOnline, and located one of the stolen power tools at a pawn shop. I met the victim at the pawn shop, and using the serial number, he confirmed the item was his air impact gun. I am hopeful the store video will also help me locate suspects that stole copper welding leads stolen out of a work truck on an adjactent street that same night.

A $15 stolen knife solves a burglary case

"I became a detective in my department in March of 2010. I took over the cases of the detective I replaced when he went back to the work the road. Through LeadsOnline, I found a knife that was taken in a burglary at one of our local pawn shops. The female who pawned the knife was best friends with our suspect. I charged the woman that pawned the knife and she plead guilty and received probation, she has to attend theft classes, pay fines and restitution totaling over $800.00 for a $15.00 knife.

"I just got another hit on an item from LeadsOnline. I checked into the additional item and discovered that a Compaq computer was stolen from Radio Shack a few weeks ago at our local mall. I pulled the initial report from my department and verified the information that LeadsOnline was showing to be correct. I proceeded to a local pawn shop where the item was pawned and recovered the computer. I was able to obtain the information for the suspect who pawned the computer.

Camera stolen by employee at camera shop

"I recently received a possible hit on three items through LeadsOnline for stolen property. I confirmed that the property was stolen through NCIC and pulled the initial reports from my agency. Once I verified that all of the information from LeadsOnline was correct, I contacted the pawn shop where the items were pawned and recovered two of the three items that were stolen. The third item had already been sold by the pawn shop, but hopefully we will recover it. The first item was a Sony Playstation 3 and warrants will be signed on the suspect for that incident. The second item that was recovered is a Nikon D90 digital camera recovered on worth $1,049.99. The item was recovered and when I contacted the camera store that the item belonged to, the employee who answered the phone admitted to the crime. She was arrested for Grand Larceny and was immediately fired by her employer."

Lights out for daylight burglaries

"I have been using LeadsOnline since 2001. The very first time I used this system, I cleared a felony theft case. Just in the last 2 weeks we have identified and located, several suspects in recent daylight burglaries. One group is several young men who were breaking into houses and then going straight to the pawn shops to get rid of the stolen items. We have cleared 4 burglaries, arrested two --- with more to come and recovered jewelry, movies and stereo equipment.

"A pair of rings valued over $7,000 were stolen from a home in our city where the homeowner was having the wood floor refinished. I interviewed the two workers who were in the home and began my search using the information they provided me. Using LeadsOnline, I was able to run searches that located the stolen rings. The victim went with us to the pawn shop and was able to get her ring back within 24 hours of the report.

"A recent home burglary occurred, but no forced entry. However, the victim had two subjects employed at the home.

5-carat ring stolen and recovered

"I was investigating a theft case where a $15,000.00 5-carat diamond ring was stolen. The victim told me that the satellite repair man was at her house the night she realized that her ring was missing. I followed up with the company and gathered information on the worker. The supervisor for the company advised me that the worker was from St. Louis and was sent to the Birmingham area to help clear a heavy work load.

As I do in all of my cases, I entered the workers name into LeadsOnline for a search to be conducted. The third day that the information was in the system, I got a hit back on the suspect's name. The suspect pawned a ring matching the one of my victims' in St. Louis, Missouri. I followed up with a Detective in St. Louis to get the ring recovered and to get a picture sent to me so the victim could identify the ring as hers.

Once the ring was identified by the victim, I was able to get the ring shipped to Birmingham and get it returned to the victim. The defendant in this case was charged with Theft 1st and will be extradited back to Birmingham. Without LeadsOnline, the ring that had sentimental value to my victim would not have been recovered."

Detective solves first case by recovering stolen items in 2 hours

"Last month I was reassigned to the Criminal Investigations Division of my Police Department. In less than a week, LeadsOnline helped me break my first case. The suspect in my case stole several items, so I looked on LeadsOnline first using the suspect name. My suspect had pawned an exact list of everything that had been stolen less than 2 hours after the incident. In less than 24 hours, I was able to recover every piece of stolen property and return it all to it's owner, a very rare thing in law enforcement. I was also able to charge the suspect with four felonies based on investigative information aided by LeadsOnline."

Stereo stolen by meatball recovered

"I had a $1,800.00 car stereo reported stolen out of a vehicle and had no suspects at the time. Soon after, I was checking the individuals pawning in my county and I noticed a Pioneer Car stereo that was sold to a Pawn Shop in Mobile, Alabama, about an hour away. I noticed that the subject who'd sold it was someone that I had arrested for theft in the past and he had a nickname of Meatball.

I went back and looked at the report that patrol took and saw that the victim stated that he noticed a guy in his yard on the day the stereo went missing and he only knew him as Meatball. The stereo was identified as the stolen one and the bad guy was arrested. When I interviewed the suspect, and knew that I had the stereo, he stated that he knew he was done and he better get a lawyer. How did we ever do this without LeadsOnline? Thanks for being there for us."

Less than one hour after receiving the complaint, a check through LeadsOnline revealed two of the tractors being sold to a scrap yard in Alexandria, Louisiana. The next day, another tractor was located at another scrap yard -- and the fourth tractor was located at a third scrap yard.

My search also found a High School ring from the complainant being sold at a Pawn Shop. The complainant didn't know the ring was stolen, so she was very surprised and thankful to get the ring back. At the start of the investigation I had four suspects, to date one has been arrested, two warrants have been issued and one pending."

Pawn transactions leads to the arrest of bank robber

"Longmont Police Department's Community Service Officer / Detective Beth Buchholtz has the primary duty of conducting pawn investigations using LeadsOnline as a major tool in these investigations. During the course of her duties, she regularly reviews surveillance footage and compares those she sees with arrest photos. In doing this, she is able to identify many suspects by seeing photos of them. She recently viewed the surveillance photos from a bank robbery and realized the suspect was a person who she knew had been making a large number of pawn transactions. She passed this information on to the Robbery Detective. Additional follow up was conducted by other Detectives; an arrest warrant was obtained for and an arrest made of the person CSO Buchholtz identified. Not only is Beth adept at conducting pawn investigations she learns the "players" in Longmont and in this case was able to assist in the arrest of the bank robbery suspect."

11 felony charges from one search

"The first case I solved using LeadsOnline generated roughly 11 felony charges, including theft and pawn violations. Searching with this program helped me locate stolen property fast enough to locate its rightful owner. I didn't even need serial numbers since I had one suspect's name.

I also just had a patrol officer hand me three printouts from LeadsOnline regarding a theft case she was working on. It helped me solve the case and retrieve all the stolen property within one day. Using the serial numbers, I tracked down three different felony pawns."

Pawn ticket and GPS data help catch repeat offender

"Earlier this month, one of our fine deputies took a burglary of a motor vehicle report. After reading the report, I found no serial numbers for the Magellan GPS that was stolen from the vehicle, so I figured this would be another inactive case.

But the next day, I decided to check LeadsOnline and entered just the words "Magellan GPS" in the description and Baytown, TX, for the city where I thought I might find my suspect. While scrolling through the list of several names, I found one for a suspect my partner and I had dealt with in the past. This suspect was good for some vehicle burglaries in the past and he had just recently pawned an item I was looking for. So, I printed the ticket from my computer and went to the pawn shop. Once at the pawn shop I asked the clerk to bring me the item that I was looking for. And lo and behold, I turned the GPS on and found my complainant's address inside. I recovered the property and returned it to a happy citizen. Oh, and it didn't take me long to convince the judge to sign off on the warrant."

Friends help another friend move... and steal stuff

"My victim was moving into a new house and had some friends helping her move. After getting moved in, she realized her Wii was missing as was a JVC Camcorder. She filed a report and when I contacted her she gave me the names of the people who'd helped her move. I ran a LeadsOnline check of the friends and found two of them (boyfriend, girlfriend) had pawned several items at several local pawn shops. I was able to locate the JVC Camcorder, put a hold on it, and arranged for the owner to pick it up. One suspect has been arrested and the other has made arrangements to turn himself in. We also located two lawn mowers that they pawned that were stolen on separate incidents this past week.

Thanks, LeadsOnline, for making things easy."

Three cases solved with one search

"A Deputy in the Nye County Sheriff's Office took a report of a burglary. Upon returning to the office, the Deputy ran the property through LeadsOnline. Immediately, he got a hit for a camera in LeadsOnline that had been taken during the burglary. The Deputy and I identified that the suspect who had pawned the camera was also identified as a possible suspect in a burglary of a residence down the street as well.

Using the information provided by LeadsOnline, police tracked the suspect down. Interviews and further investigation identified two additional suspects involved in this case. All three individuals were arrested and were booked into NCSO Detention Center. A search warrant was executed on the suspect's residence and a majority of the stolen items were recovered from the residence. During a search of the residence, several items were also located that had been taken during a third burglary that had not previously been linked to these suspects.

So, in whole, due to the Deputy running the serial number of a camera through LeadsOnline, we were able to apprehend three burglars, close out three seperate and unrelated burglaries, and the investigation is still ongoing into other possible burglaries."

"A state trooper asked me to conduct some searches on LeadsOnline relating to a burglary case he was working. The stolen items included a Wii system and some games. They belonged to a young boy of around 11 years old. I was able to find the system and the games and the trooper picked them up and returned them to the young boy that night.

The boy was so appreciative of our work that he tried to give the trooper one of his basketball trophies! I received an email the next day from the trooper telling me the little boy said to tell me thanks."

More than one way to catch a crook

"Around the middle of May, a burglary report came across my desk that I thought should be routine, like all the rest, but this one continued to elude me and my leads. I'd heard of LeadsOnline from an investigator I've worked with from another jurisdiction.

I had exhausted every lead I had and other cases were piling up, so I put this one on the back burner. Every other day or so, I punched in the serial number in the search engine to no avail. After a week of that I remembered you told me of the different ways to search and search the approximate serial number and BAM! there it was! Without LeadsOnline I couldn't have solved this case.

Thanks Anya, you have been a great help , showing the several different ways LeadsOnline can help me help my community. If the rest of the staff at LeadsOnline are as helpful as you then you guys need to give yourselves a pat on the back."

LeadsOnline helps get a full confession

"During a recent St. Peters investigation of a Felony Burglary, a suspected acquaintance of the victim's daughter was a well-known local heroin addict. The suspect in this incident kicked in a rear door of the residence and over $8,000 in reported jewelry and electronics were reported stolen.

A subsequent investigation included surprising the suspect at his weekly probation & parole meeting and the subject was taken into custody. During further interrogation, the suspect was interviewed and later presented with multiple LeadsOnline printouts showing the suspect pawning the stolen jewelry and other items from the burglary.

After being presented with the LeadsOnline tickets showing the dates an times the suspect pawned the stolen jewelry & tools, the suspect made a full confession regarding the burglary and stealing. The suspect admitted to selling some of the items to pawn shops and trading other items for heroin from his drug dealer. The suspect's probation was revoked and he is currently incarcerated facing a 7-year backup for the probation violation and additional time if convicted on the two other felony charges."

Plasma TV recovered by serial number search

"On a clear day here in Arizona, like most days, persons unknown committed a residential burglary while the homeowners were away on vacation. Several household items were taken, along with several expensive camera lenses and a Sony 46-inch plasma TV. I conducted a search with LeadsOnline using a serial number of the TV. I received a "Hit" locating the TV in a Mesa Pawn Shop. The TV was recovered and returned to its owners. Two suspects have been identified as a result. Oral DNA samples from both suspects have been taken and submitted with crime scene DNA. I expect a match from one or both suspects."

Plasma TV recovered by serial number search

"I use LeadsOnline everyday as a civilian pawn investigator assigned to the Property Crimes Division in Detectives. I have found stolen property in pawn shops in cases that were initially closed with 'no leads.'

I was able to use LeadsOnline to find stolen property in 12 cases that were linked to one suspect who had been breaking into cars in our city and a neighboring city. The same suspect escalated his behavior and began stealing store "spinner" displays of gold jewelry, and pawning the jewelry. The story has a happy ending for us and the victims, not so much for the arrestee.

A similar case occurred where a suspect broke into a heating and air conditioning repair van, stole several high-end tools, and pawned them. Using LeadsOnline, I was able to locate those tools and research the suspect's pawn history. I found that he had pawned several similar items in May of last year. Those items were then matched to a theft case that had occurred in our city!

Cases that had originally been closed with no leads were cleared. LeadsOnline makes it easy to solve pawn violation cases and return stolen property to victims. The suspects are left wondering how we found out about their crimes so fast! Thanks!"

The case of the bad son

"I recently had a case where a mother claimed her son had stolen her credit card and used it to purchase $529.78 worth of video game systems and games. I ran the name of the suspect's son through LeadsOnline and did not find him. But, I then ran his friends and associates and found one of them had pawned the same video game system and games that were purchased by the suspect the day before. I retrieved the items and also the video from the pawn shop.

Got some free time? Solve some cases

"I am a relatively new user of LeadsOnline and still exploring all of the features. On an afternoon when I found some free time, I was searching NCIC hits. In a matter of one half hour, I located a chain saw and Microsoft MP3 player that appeared to have been stolen from two agencies in our area.

This seemed way too simple, punch a couple keys find stolen items .... so I called Erin at LeadsOnline to make sure I was correct. She helped me confirm that these were good hits. (Thanks Erin, you are always so helpful ... Go Packers!)

I notified the agencies, who by the way are not LeadsOnline users, and although these aren't huge cases, the owners will be happy to be reunited with their property."

Two suspects caught, sentenced to 10 and 20 years

"I was assigned a Burglary and Break/Enter to a home and storage building. A Craftsman lawn mower was taken sometime between 1/21/10 and 2/2/10, when the thefts were discovered. I checked our local pawn shops for this date range for a Craftsman mower and found where one had been pawned on 1/27/10 (not the season for push mowers).

I was able to determine it was in fact the mower of my victim, an elderly man. I was able to interview the person who pawned the mower and the results were a full confession to more than $1,000 of additional property that was taken --- that the victim didn't even realize. In addition, an additional suspect was identified and also gave a confession. One is now serving 10 years and the other 20 years, thanks to finding my mower using LeadsOnline.

Thanks for a great Law Enforcement tool."

Busting a family tradition of pawning stolen items

"During another investigation, I noticed some suspicious pawn transactions from a mother, son, and daughter. This Stillwater family had pawned numerous MP3 players and video cameras at several different Oklahoma City pawn shops. These transactions were all within 3-4 days and spread out across several pawn shops in the OKC area. There were approximately 15-20 similar electronic items pawned.

I contacted the company that sold the specific MP3 player and learned the mother currently worked at a Return Center in Stillwater and was one of their more "trusted employees." I also learned of large amounts of electronic products mysteriously disappearing from the company, in which the company's own investigation had yielded no viable suspects. After showing the management the recent pawn transactions from LeadsOnline, they determined this trusted employee (and some of her co-workers) were actually embezzling large amounts of electronics from the company.

LeadsOnline is one of my favorite investigative tools when dealing with property crimes. Now if only the REST of the investigation went as easy!"

Law Enforcement, Gamestop, U.S. Postal Service, and LeadsOnline work together to catch crooks

"Unknown actor(s) were stealing mail, including checks written by the victims to pay bills, from mailboxes in Johnson County. The actor(s) were taking the information from the checks and printing up new checks. While investigating the identity theft, I discovered one of the fraudulent checks had been written to Gamestop for more than $300.00. I contacted Loss Prevention at Gamestop and requested the serial number for the unit that had been purchased with the fraudulent check.

Once I received this information, I checked the serial number through LeadsOnline and located the unit which had been pawned. After checking out the suspect, I learned he had been arrested for fraud and other offenses in the past. I shared this information with an investigator at the U.S. Postal Inspector's Office. It turned out this individual was responsible for mail theft and identity theft in numerous jurisdictions; therefore, it was adopted by the U.S. Postal Inspector's Office and filed through the federal courts. ...All because of LeadsOnline!"

Detailed descriptions on pawn shop records identify stolen items

"A Shreveport resident called me in my office in reference to a theft that occurred at his home. The victim explained that his cousin came to his residence to borrow some money. When the victim went into another room of the residence, his cousin collected several items belonging to the victim, and fled.

The victim called me after hearing the suspect pawned one of the items, an Xbox 360 and its peripherals, at a local pawn shop; however, he was unable to provide the serial number for the items. Using the LeadsOnline database, I was able to research the suspect's information to determine the suspect pawned the items reported stolen, around the time the theft occurred.

Having this information, the police department's pawn investigator, Detective Courtney responded to the business in an effort to verify the items pawned belonged to the victim. Det. Courtney was able to verify descriptive information exclusive to the victim's video game console, corroborating information the victim provided. The items pawned were placed on hold with the pawn shop, and a warrant was obtained for the suspect's arrest.

A Caddo Parish District Court Judge signed a warrant charging the suspect with one count of Felony Theft and the suspect was arrested. Thanks LeadsOnline!"

Diamond earrings sold in another city recovered with LeadsOnline

"We received a case assignment concerning theft of property during a residential move. The victim had using a moving company. After the move, the victim noticed that a pair of diamond earrings valued over $5,000 was missing. The victim had the name of an employee who had been alone briefly inside the master bedroom, where the jewelry was kept. A report was filed by the victim, but a search on the suspect's name came back without a lead. We then cross referenced the property description, which led to locating property outside our jurisdiction, in Nashville. The earrings were pawned day after the victim's move, but by the suspect's girlfriend. The earrings were recovered and returned to the victim."

Making fans of police and pawn shops

"On February 22, 2010, I was assigned a theft of a 14k gold ring from a local pawn shop that occurred two days earlier. This pawn shop had been informed about LeadsOnline but had not started reporting transaction data.

My department had recently started using LeadsOnline, so I put in the information I knew about the crime and there it was: the suspect pawned the ring at another pawn shop just down the road within minutes of stealing it.

I recovered the ring and now the pawn shop where the ring was stolen said their next call was going to be to LeadsOnline so that they could help victim's just like Leads helped them. Thank you LeadsOnline!!!"

Weeks' worth of work accomplished in just hours

"While visiting my parents for the holidays on Long Island, my $250 iPod was stolen from my car. So, the next day I decided to see how much it would cost to replace it with a used one on eBay. And then, just for the heck of it, I decided to check new listings within a 10-mile radius of where my parents live …. and boom! There was my iPod, in the exact case I bought for it, for sale on eBay! I contacted the local police to see if there was anything I could do to get my iPod back. I was put in touch with a detective in the computer crimes department.

I knew it was definitely my iPod after the officer told me to enlarge the photo in the listing because he said there was a photo visible on the iPod screen. Sure enough the stupid thief took a picture of MY iPod for his listing while one of MY personal photos was showing on the screen. Plus, this genius thief posted a photo of the backside of the iPod, showing MY serial number. Really, a smart guy, huh?

I went to the police station and showed the same photo on the eBay listing that was on my wife's iPod because we have all the same photos. As soon as he saw that, the detective was convinced it was my iPod and was able to track down the seller through LeadsOnline. Best of all, the police and arrested the guy just hours later!

What might have taken the detective weeks to find with subpoenas, LeadsOnline helped him accomplish in mere hours. Thanks to you guys the thief was arrested, has to face criminal charges.

And this is all thanks to LeadsOnline and your partnership with eBay. YOU GUYS ARE ROCKSTARS!"

Saving time and recovering property with LeadsOnline serial number search

"I am a detective assigned to investigate burglaries and thefts. I was assigned a burglary in which over $10,000 of tools were taken from a warehouse. The victim gave me information on a person he suspected to have committed the burglary. Before I could contact that person, the victim contacted me with serial numbers for some of the stolen property. Using the pawn shop search in LeadsOnline, I was able to locate some of the stolen property in another jurisdiction. I was able to recover property at two pawn shops, identify a suspect and recover additional property at his residence. Video from one of the pawn shops allowed me to identify a second suspect. Neither suspect was the person named by the victim. LeadsOnline was able to eliminate wasted time in my investigation as well as identify the suspects in the case."

$50,000 of stolen jewelry recovered

"A burglary of a residence occurred in our city on December 30, 2009. Several items of jewelry and a television were stolen. There were no real leads in the case, so I checked LeadsOnline using a broader description of the stolen items. I located a watch possbily meeting the description bases on how the pawn shop described it and value. I went to the pawn shop and located the serial number of that watch. The value of that watch was nearly $30,000. From the store video, we were able to identify two of the four suspects. An arrest was made in the case. Later, I had a possible hit on one of the other stolen watches. I was able to later identify this watch being stolen with the value of $20,000. In both cases the serial numbers were not recorded by the pawn shops. The search was done on name and series of the watches. The victim had given up hope of the property ever being recovered. This is why I use broader searches."

Suspect denies crimes, but LeadsOnline proves otherwise

"LeadsOnline was instrumental in the arrest of a burglary suspect. We had previously interviewed the suspect who was denying involvement in the crime. We let him go and continued the investigation. Using LeadsOnline, we found out that he had pawned a lady's ring two towns over. We obtained a detailed description of the ring from the victim and went to examine the pawned ring. The ring was identical to the one described by the victim. We took possession of the ring and the elderly victim was able to positively identify it as being her mother's 50th anniversary wedding ring. Using the information that we now had we were able to elicit a confession for the burglary from a previously uncooperative suspect. When faced with the evidence that LeadsOnline provided us we were able get a confession and the victim was able to recover a family heirloom."

LeadsOnline: It's just better

"1. LeadsOnline is a much faster system. Our in-house system is backlogged anywhere from two weeks to six months.

2. LeadsOnline is an electronic system. Our in-house system has numerous stores that do not transfer data electronically. We have to pick up the pawn slips and have them entered into our system by hand.

3. LeadsOnline is nationwide. Our in-house system can only search stores in Austin. The bad guys know this and will take stolen property to different cities to pawn.

4. LeadsOnline is potentially more accurate. LeadsOnline data only has to be entered once electronically. Using our in-house system, the data may have to be hand entered more than once. This can create errors.

5. LeadsOnline has additional helpful info. LeadsOnline has more data concerning phone numbers and addresses of the businesses right on the search page."

Multiple thefts across three jurisdictions

"I was assigned a Stealing Over $500 investigation involving an employee from a carpet cleaning company. While cleaning victims' carpets, the employee stole three very expensive rings. During the course of my investigation, I entered the employee's name into LeadsOnline in an attempt to locate him. The employee is an immigrant from Iraq, and due to his unusual name, I entered just the first name into the LeadsOnline system, which came up with a match. He sold four pieces of jewelry to a pawn shop in St. Charles City (a neighboring county). The victim in my case identified one of the rings as being hers. The ring recovered was valued at $1,800.00.

I spoke with the St. Charles City, Missouri Police Department about the offense. Det. Gary Drury from St. Charles City advised me that he possibly had a case on the employee. After speaking with me, he was also able to make a case on the employee.

Through further investigation, I found that the Crestwood, Missouri Police Department also had an interest in the employee. After relaying information to Det. Applebaum from Crestwood, he was able to make the case.

In total, the employee pawned 15 items of jewelry at area pawnshops. He is currently pending trial in circuit court.

Without LeadsOnline, this case may have gone unsolved."

Employing new ways to recover property

"I would like to inform LeadsOnline of success stories from the Little Rock Police Department.

The first occurred on September 23, 2004, when I was contacted by one of my Burglary victims. Mr. Smith requested I look up a person he thought might be involved in his burglary. I took the name and ran it in your system, but did not receive any information on this subject.

I decided to check the articles and guns in the NCIC area of LeadsOnline. I do this on a weekly basis to check weapons. Mr. Smith had also talked to me about the weapons taken in the burglary of his home. I started going down the list and noticed two weapons that matched the description of the ones taken in Mr. Smith's burglary. Mr. Smith did not have his serial numbers recorded, but stated he could identify the weapons. After calling Mr. Smith I inquired about a television he had reported and it also matched what this person had pawned.

After making an appointment to meet Mr. Smith at the pawn shop, I continued to search the NCIC report. To cut a long story short, I located two other hits on the same page. I was able to solve three burglaries assigned to me within a 15-minute span and recover over $5,000.00 in property.

On November 3, 2004, I located a stolen weapon from Grant County, Arkansas. After checking the name of the person who pawned the weapon using LeadsOnline, I also located where he had pawned an additional three weapons. The weapons have been secured through the Police Hold section of LeadsOnline and warrants will be filed on this subject.

I want to send my gratitude to LeadsOnline for this website. This site is one of the greatest tools a Police Officer could dream of. I would recommend LeadsOnline to all agencies in Law Enforcement."

Employing new ways to recover property

"Det. Neal was assigned to investigate the theft of two power drills valued at $2,250.00 each, that were stolen from a business here in the City of Berkeley. Det. Neal successfully used LeadsOnline and located the two drills at two area pawn shops.

LeadsOnline not only provided Det. Neal with the name of the pawn shops where the drills were pawned, it also provided him with the date and time the drills were pawned as well as the name, address and telephone number of the subject who pawned them.

The drills were recovered and reunited with the owner and a subject was arrested and charged with the theft. Warrants were issued and bond set at $5,000.00.

LeadsOnline has been a very valuable tool for this department. Thank you for this very important investigative system."

One-of-a-kind diamond ring returned to rightful owner

"In July 2003, I received a case file where an elderly lady hired a caretaker to help her around her apartment because of an illness she had. Items started coming up missing, including a one-of-a-kind custom made diamond ring given to her by her deceased husband. The suspect of course denied she ever stole anything from the lady.

I ran her name and her daughter's name through LeadsOnline and discovered numerous pawns at 2 pawn shop locations by both the suspect and her daughter. I found the stolen ring at one of the pawn shops, and the manager not only had the signed pawn ticket by the suspect, he was able to identify the suspect as the person who pawned the ring.

The suspect had been stealing from her elderly clients and pawning the stolen jewelry. I reported her to the state licensing department and had her license revoked. The suspect was also charged with a Felony for stealing. The victim was so happy to be able to get her late husband's keepsake back."

More than 11 burglaries cleared

"I had several burglaries of Brake Check stores in June 2004. The suspects stole numerous tools. There were no suspects or leads. No new burglaries of Brake Checks occurred until October 2004.

We developed a name of a suspect and ran pawn searches [on LeadsOnline]. Not only did we find the tools stolen in October and November but also the ones stolen in the June burglaries as well. All were dutifully recorded in the LeadsOnline database. We can more than likely clear 11 Burglaries, 2 auto thefts and one burglary of a vehicle all thanks to LeadsOnline."

Suspects run but can't hide

"Just to let you know, I have been using the LeadsOnline web search system on the free trial for a few days now. So far, I have found two robbery and burglary suspects located in Montgomery, AL - which is located 140 miles from Jacksonville, AL. We knew that the suspects had moved from the Jacksonville area but did not know where. It appears that the two suspects have been pawning jewelry, which is suspected of being stolen.

We notified Montgomery PD of the two suspects and advised of their history. We were advised by Montgomery PD that the two were also suspects in a number of crimes in that area as well. We were able to advise Montgomery of information we had on the two suspects that will connect them to other crimes.

We would not have been able to obtain this information without LeadsOnline. Thank you."

Providing a valuable service for a reasonable cost

"I just wanted to pass along another success story. We had a report of items stolen from a residence with a good known suspect. We found out the suspect had left the area, so we decided to run his name through LeadsOnline and we were able to locate stolen items he sold in Nashville, Tennessee.

When the suspect returned to our jurisdiction we confronted him with the knowledge and solved the case. This was a felony in Missouri and charges are pending.

Without LeadsOnline, I don't believe we would have ever known for sure where these items were sold. Thanks again for providing this valuable service to Law Enforcement for a reasonable cost!"

"Since January of this year we have recovered approximately $8,000 in property as a direct result of LeadsOnline. This has resulted in 17 criminal charges being filed with our District Attorney's office and has solved/closed ten felony cases.

This is a very helpful tool for Law Enforcement."

50th anniversary ring recovered

"Recently I had a case where an elderly woman was burglarized multiple times. She even had her lock changed because she thought it was someone who may have had a key. It ended up being another woman who had befriended the victim.

This woman [suspect] knew of the elderly lady through her daughter. She worked her way into the house by saying that she wanted to meet the woman who was so close to her daughter. The elderly lady let her in because the eventual thief was so nice, charming, and pleasant. Apparently during these encounters the woman would ask to use the bathroom, but instead would go to the bedroom and steal the victim's jewelry. This occurred several different times.

Prior to our discovering who the suspect was, the woman asked to borrow $40 dollars from the victim. The following day the [suspect] returned the borrowed $40 dollars and offered to do some small cleaning for the victim. After the [suspect] left, the victim went to return the borrowed $40 dollars to a hidden location in her home, and realized $160 cash was missing. The [suspect] was the only person other than the victim's daughter who knew where the money was kept. The beat officer interviewed the [suspect] about the missing money, however she denied any involvement.

Now having a new possible suspect name to look at, I searched LeadsOnline's database and received a hit on the woman's name. She had pawned jewelry on several different dates all at one pawnshop. The dates of the pawns were checked against the dates of the previously reported burglaries. The dates all matched the same time period. A police hold was placed on the items and photos taken. The photos were shown to the victim, who, upon seeing her missing rings, began to cry. She stated she thought she would never see the rings again, which included her wedding rings and a 50th anniversary ring her husband gave her.

During this investigation, a second burglary victim was also discovered. She likewise had jewelry stolen. This victim lived in the same area and never suspected the woman who lived across from her was responsible for burglarizing her home.

Thank you, LeadsOnline - without your service I may never had solved these burglaries, let alone had enough evidence against the suspected woman to lock her into a solid case. When the suspect was interviewed, she denied any knowledge of the victim's property being stolen. After showing her the pictures of the jewelry now positively identified by the victims along with the LeadsOnline printout of her activity concerning the pawns, she confessed to the burglaries, thus giving a written statement. With LeadsOnline's database it was easy to link everything to the suspect, recover the property and clear the offenses.

Just from these two cases I recovered several thousands of dollars of jewelry.

I would also like to thank the pawn shop involved, as they were very professional and helpful in this investigation as well as their help in returning the victims property."

Sentimental (and expensive) Rolex watch recovered

"I have nothing but good things to say regarding the LeadsOnline program. It allows investigators to get the jump on locating property from victims who have been violated, in every sense of the word.

Most recently, I was investigating a burglary of a residence where jewelry, laptop computers, and various other electronic equipment was stolen. The backdoor was kicked open and the house was ransacked throughout. The victim was devastated because his Rolex watch had been listed as a piece of property that was stolen. The watch was expensive, but also had sentimental value attached. The serial number of the watch was made available, and I ran it through LeadsOnline. Within a few seconds I located the watch which had been pawned in an adjacent city. The watch was recovered and returned to the owner, who was enthusiastically happy that he was able to have his watch back.

As a result, I was able to convict the suspect who committed the burglary above. This case would not have been solved if it wasn't for the LeadsOnline program.

LeadsOnline is a valuable tool for police investigators to use in the recovery of stolen property and the identification of suspects."

Putting a stop to more than just one type of crime

"In the early morning hours, Cedar Park Police Department stopped two white males named Daniel and Eric. Daniel and Eric were stopped while carrying several large black bags containing numerous items, which would lead a good officer to believe that a burglary of a habitation occurred.

During the stop, CPPD found Daniel was in possession of a meth pipe, and he was arrested. Well, Eric was set free with out any of the property, so CPPD thought. CPPD requested my department check by a residence. Our Deputy found that the residence had been burglarized. We did not find any physical evidence connecting Daniel or Eric to the residence, other than the recovered property.

I interviewed Daniel in jail, and got nowhere. Daniel's story was that he bumped into Eric and he was carrying all the property. Eric's story was that he bumped into Daniel and he was carrying all the property. Then the story changed to 'they found the property'.

Well to make a long story short, I conducted a check on Eric through LeadsOnline, and found that he had pawned a collector's Elvis Zippo lighter, which belonged to the victim. Online showed that Eric pawned the lighter on the same day they where stopped by CPPD.

I confronted Eric with the LeadsOnline information and he then provided me a written statement, which landed burglary charges on both Daniel and Eric. Eric stated that he had hid the lighter in his sock, while he was being searched by CPPD.

This is just one story of how LeadsOnline has changed the course of my investigation, from possession of stolen property to burglary of a habitation. I have used LeadsOnline to successfully locate missing persons, track wanted suspects, and in one incident I was able to catch a complainant / victim in an insurance fraud scam.

I recommend LeadsOnline to any Department or Pawnshop establishment."

Identity theft? Not on our watch

"I checked LeadsOnline for a subject who was arrested in Panola, Texas. The subject confessed that he had been committing ID theft on the Internet. He advised that he had pawned several items in Shreveport, Louisiana. Checking with LeadsOnline, I found that he had pawned a computer. This computer is the one he used to commit the crimes. I filled out the LeadsOnline pawn hold form, faxed it to the pawn shop and picked up the item. Thanks."
