Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Helps Identify Suspect 1,000 miles from Vehicular Theft Crime Scene

​Detective Staff Sergeant Russell of Anderson County Sheriff’s Office (SC) saw a bulletin come out from a Uniform Patrol Deputy in Oklahoma that included an image taken from surveillance footage of a suspect stealing a truck. Det. Sgt Russell was aware of the stolen truck being seen in Anderson County days after the theft, decided to enter the suspect’s image into Clearview AI, and immediately got a single result. He then contacted a neighboring Sheriff’s Office who had previous encounters with this suspect and they confirmed the identity matched the result generated through Clearview AI.


Using this information, along with other resources, Det. Sgt Russell was able to locate someone close to the suspect and confirm he was in Oklahoma during the time of the theft which allowed authorities in Oklahoma to move forward with their criminal investigation.
