Wednesday, we told you about a guy wanted for allegedly stealing a cell phone from a business in West Creek. Today, we can tell you he’s been identified and charged.

According to New Jersey State Police, surveillance video captured a guy swiping a cell phone at Anchor Appliance in West Creek. And it should be noted that Anchor Appliance has very good security cameras.

Video of the crime, combined with the power of social media, lead police to identify the suspect as 42-year-old Jeffrey R. Syarto of Lanoka Harbor. Troopers say they were able to contact Syarto based on social media leads and he agreed to report to the Tuckerton NJSP Station where he was charged with theft and released pending court.
