Social media strikes again.
A suspect in a residential burglary turned himself into Gloucester Township police on Saturday morning, just hours after the department posted on its Facebook page and YouTube account video footage of him committing the crime, according to a news release.
The burglary occurred Jan. 11 at a home in the 1100 block of Chews Landing Road. The homeowner provided police with closed-circuit video footage of the suspect burglarizing the home, and stealing copper piping and other items from the property. Police posted the footage on Friday evening.
After police received numerous anonymous tips, the suspect, identified as Mark Gravatt, turned himself in at the police station.
Gravatt, 39, of the unit block of Antietam Drive in Laurel Springs , was charged with one third-degree count of burglary, one fourth-degree count of theft and one fourth-degree count of criminal mischief. He was released on a summons.
