In April 2018, I was working night time patrol on the weekend shift. A local business downtown was broken into and several items were stolen. The business owner was able to provide me with a grainy photo of a suspect vehicle.
I was able to use our ALPR system to identify the only vehicle that matched the suspect vehicle in the area during the burglary. I entered the vehicle as a felony wanted vehicle in a statewide database. The next night the vehicle was stopped in a neighboring jurisdiction and the suspect was identified.
As a result of the investigation, we were able to file burglary charges on the suspect and hold him accountable for stealing from our Danville business. It was great to have a resource like ALPR that allowed me to make a case when otherwise I would not have been able to do so.
