Gloucester Township Police Arrest ‘Dancing Shoplifter’
Gloucester Township Police said Anthony DiVietro, 26, of Stratford, stuffed a woman’s dress under his shirt and tried to leave the store without paying for the merchandise on Oct. 1.
Police say he tossed the clothes and took off when he was confronted by security.
According to police, the video was viewed approximately 3,700 in a 12-hour period after it gained media attention. Police received several telephone tips leading them to DiVietro.
He has been charged with shoplifting and police determined DiVietro also had an outstanding warrant. He was released on his own recognizance.
Chief Harry Earle said they have solved four cases since February 2011 using social media.
