The recovery is deepening an investigation that Cleveland Police Department detectives report will lead to coming arrests.
According to officials at Cleveland Police Department, arrests are forthcoming.
The investigation began to unfold after a suspect went to a local sports card shop and attempted to sell the items, according to Criminal Investigations Division detective Steve Ross.
“The proprietor was able to get a license tag (sequence) which came back not registered to the vehicle he described, but we had a description and alerted patrol officers,” said Ross.
Officer Cody Hinson had performed a traffic stop near Wildwood Avenue when he spotted a car matching the description. He reportedly cleared his initial stop and was able to make contact with the suspect vehicle which officers were on the lookout for.
After working into the late morning hours Thursday, officials made a recovery of some of the alleged stolen sports cards.
Detectives have at least four suspects in mind, according to Ross.
“We have arrests pending as we continue the investigation,” said Ross.
Also working to help recover and continue the investigation was detective Andy Ratcliff. A reward up to $500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the alleged perpetrator(s) was approved shortly after the burglary was reported.
Anyone having additional information regarding the case is asked to contact Ross at 303-3120 or 650-9680.
