Private Detective: Reward Offered for Storage Unit Thief

Police think the same thief is responsible for two crimes that are 55 miles apart. The criminal has hit over one hundred storage units.  In one heist, he was caught on camera.
The crimes impact more than 20 victims, that police are aware of.

 http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

Detectives are pointing the finger at the man seen in the video.

“He arrives just after 3am,” Detective Mark Thomas said, describing the first time they saw him, “and he apparently cuts the chain link and rolls it back.”

The video is dated April 11 at the Space Center Storage Units on Midland Trail in Shelbyville.

The man in a Harley Davidson hoodie is seen wheeling in a dolly of some sort, and over the course of an hour, wheels it in and back out, full of stolen goods.

“What’s significant about this is the amount of time he’s taking in the facility.” Thomas said “Almost as if he’s not caring that police could be outside or if he’s set off any alarms.”

He cares so little that he made the 55 mile drive to Lexington a week later and does the same thing at the Space Center building on Mall Road.

“Once we compared the still shots from Lexington and the video from Shelbyville,” Thomas said. “It’s pretty clear this is the same person.”

The cost of the damages is significant.

“Between the two locations, we’re looking at about $25-30k in losses.  Upwards of 20 victims at this time,” Thomas said. “We probably have more victims who haven’t noticed what they’re missing yet.”

If you have any information that would be helpful in catching this criminal, contact the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 859-253-2020.  Your information could earn you a cash reward.

Accident Reconstruction One Dead and Several Injured in Madison County Crash

Troopers are investigating a two-vehicle accident in Madison county where one person died and several others were injured.

Jacks Creek Road was shut down from 5 pm into the late evening hours, on Tuesday, as investigators reconstructed the accident in which one person died and four others were injured.

Kentucky State Police said one car, with two men and two women, was heading east toward Richmond when it crashed into another car with only one person in it.

http://liarcatchers.com/accident_reconstruction.html

The woman in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead on scene by the Madison County Coroner.

State police says another person from that same vehicle, who was sitting behind the passenger, had to be flown to UK hospital.

The three others involved went to the hospital by ambulance. No word on the extent of the injuries of the others involved.

A large section of the road was shut down for several hours causing a traffic back up and headache for some who were trying to get home Tuesday night.

“They continued to block the road and I had to go around on a three-mile detour to get home and I had no idea what was going on in that point in time,” said Pam Coney, neighbor.  “There was a fire truck right behind me and then one of my kids had said they’d seen a coroner’s car go by.”

Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the accident.

The coroner has yet to release the name of the woman killed in the crash.

Pedophile Tracking Greenville Woman Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Trafficking

A Greenville woman faces life in prison after pleading guilty to federal charges of transporting a minor across state lines for prostitution.

Doriean Barberi, 37, was first charged in a seven-count federal indictment with sex trafficking of children and use of interstate commerce in furtherance of prostitution, according Virginia court records.

In a plea agreement filed Thursday, Barberi is alleged to have posted ads on backpage.com, for herself and a 17-year-old victim offering their sexual services at a motel in Virginia Beach.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

One ad posted under the female escort section on Sept. 17, 2014 depicted a picture of what appeared to be a juvenile female saying, “Shy…first time on the page,” with a phone number listed, according to court records.

Barberi is alleged to have set up the appointments for the victim, who was transported from South Carolina to Virginia to have sex with customers, court records said.

The victim had seen approximately 10 customers over two days and had given Barberi all the money she was paid, according to the plea agreement.

Barberi faces a maximum penalty of life in prison when she is sentenced on Oct. 22, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Pedophile Trafficking Federal Grand Jury Indicted Two PA Men For Child Sex Trafficking

A federal grand jury indicted two 26-year-old Scranton men late last month on charges they prostituted a minor, U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith said.

Jimmy Cantelmo and Mark “Koolaid” Matis, addresses unavailable, are charged with sex trafficking of a minor as aiders and abettors, conspiracy and related crimes. The indictments were unsealed in federal court on Monday.

The grand jury charged the pair with using cellphones to take pictures of a girl, who was not identified by investigators, and posting them to Backpage.com in advertisements soliciting sex for money. The two recruited the girl in February 2014 and rented rooms at motels in Moosic, Scranton, Dunmore and Wilkes-Barre through August, according to the indictment.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

They bought her condoms and enticed her with heroin and cocaine, according to the indictment. The pair acted as “bodyguards” for her during prostitution activities.

Jimmy Cantelmo is the brother of Sean Cantelmo, a 28-year-old Scranton man sentenced last week to more than 12 years in a federal prison for child sex trafficking.

“The charges against Jimmy Cantelmo and Mark Matis relate to the same alleged sex trafficking activities for which Sean Cantelmo was sentenced,” Dawn Mayko, a spokeswoman for Smith’s office, said in an email.

Sean Cantelmo was indicted by a federal grand jury in August and pleaded guilty in January to taking part in a conspiracy to have a teenage girl engage in prostitution.

Jimmy Cantelmo was arrested last week, and Matis was arraigned Monday morning by U.S. Magistrate Judge Karoline Mehalchick, Smith said in a news release. Both have pleaded not guilty.

“He really just received the indictment today (Monday),” said Frank Bolock Jr., Matis’ attorney.

Efforts to contact Cantelmo’s attorney, Jamie Dench, were unsuccessful.

Each charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a possible maximum sentence of life in prison, according to the release.

Cantelmo and Matis are jailed pending trial, Mayko said.

Insurance Fraud 34 Arrested in Louisiana

Louisiana State Police have announced the arrest of 34 individuals over the last two months following numerous criminal investigations by their Insurance Fraud/Auto Theft Unit.

These people were involved in committing insurance fraud, including staged or “jump-in” crashes and falsifying documents to make injury claims.

Sgt. Nick Manale says some think these crimes are harmless, but that is far from the truth.

http://liarcatchers.com/insurance_fraud.html

“However, these insurance fraud cases are affecting all of us. They affect our insurance premiums. It affects all of our insurance policies across the state.”

Manale says in one case a subject paid a friend to rent a truck and then staged a crash.

“He claimed injury for himself, for his minor child who was not even in the crash or nowhere near the crash scene at the time that it occurred. And then, of course, brings all those forged documents and false claims to the insurance companies trying to collect a payment on that.”

It is reported that intentional or staged crashes costs the insurance industry billions of dollars each year in fraudulent claims. Manale says police aren’t the only ones watching out for these cases, insurance companies also have their own investigators.

“Who look at these cases and basically start flagging suspicious activity and in that case, they’ll start working with us and our investigators to determine if any crimes did happen and any intentional fraudulent acts did occur.”
