My fugitive task force was called in to help bring a violent criminal to justice. This suspect was breaking into homes and hurting the tenants before leaving with all their valuables. Despite us knowing about who he was, we could never get enough evidence to put him at the scenes of the crime. We decided we were going to have to try a different technique if we were going to finally take him off the streets.
One day we were able to arrest the suspect on different charges, and even though the jail time was short, we thought we could squeeze his family for answers while he was sitting in jail. Time and time again, his girlfriend would offer us little, asking us to leave the premises and stop harassing her. On a trip to the prison, we decided to make use of the Securus Technologies inmate call monitoring system to try and crack this case before he could get back on the street.
Each time the suspect talked to his wife, they were careful to not say anything about the crimes. This was getting concerning because he would be released in weeks, and we were afraid he would slip right back into his habits of burglaries. During one call, the Securus Technologies monitoring system detected something we had never considered. This suspect had another girlfriend, and she was becoming irritated he was not around to help support her and his other baby.
Once we uncovered this information, we visited the new girlfriend, collected pictures and letters the suspect wrote her, and took them to his current girlfriend. Once she discovered he was seeing another, she began to open up. When you involve a scored lover, all bets are off. She revealed everything we needed and even gave us evidence to connect our suspect to the robberies.
