Media Sonar In Action

A law enforcement agency in California was having difficulty tracking down the person robbing cell phone stores and selling the phones online. They could identify a car used in the robberies but they couldn’t connect the car to the suspect. Using Media Sonar’s Digital Footprint function they found a connection to the suspect’s mother who drove a car of the same color, make and model as the one used in the robbery. This led to the arrest of the suspect.
