Eld Street residents were instrumental in the investigation by keenly observing suspicious activity in their neighborhood and promptly reporting their observations to the police via the website SeeClickFix.com. Armed with the information received from Eld Street residents TNU detectives conducted surveillance, and a subsequent "sting" operation in the aforementioned area.
