The Gloucester Township police are once again tapping social media for tips on several recent crimes.
A post on the department's Facebook page on Tuesday trolled for clues in a Sept. 25 theft of two iPhones from the Radio Shack on Blackwood Clementon Road:
While the Radio Shack employees were cleaning the store for closing, the suspect pretends to look at the store merchandise. The suspect then jumps the counter and steals two iPhones, when the employees weren’t looking, then quickly exits the store. One phone belonged to an employee, the other belonged to the store. The suspect appears to be a white male with dark spiked hair, light facial hair, wearing dark thick framed glasses, white shirt, dark jacket with a large logo on the front left, jeans, and dark shoes.
Another incident was reported last week. It involved a man attempting to use a fraudulent credit card and then trying to pass several counterfeit $100 bills on Sept. 7:
The suspect attempted to purchase $300 headphones in the electronics department with a declined debit card, then with three counterfeit 100 dollar bills. The suspect walked to the front of the store and attempted to purchase $200 of merchandise with the same counterfeit bills, and security asked him to leave. He leaves in a gold Dodge Charger, that someone else was operating, with an unknown box that he possibly shoplifted from the front of the store.
Target Security advised this same suspect in the gold Dodge Charger also attempted to pass the counterfeit currency at the Millville and Turnersville Target Stores earlier that same day. The subject is described as a heavy set, black male, with a beard. He was wearing tan work boots, black jeans, and a button down Polo brand shirt, black and white in color.
