Crystal M. Leo, 28, of Brick Township, was apprehended Saturday, according to Toms River PD spokesman Ralph Stocco.

He says that tips from web surfers and painstakingly assembled video by the security team in the Route 37 Shop-Rite led to the arrest.

Police are now determining if there are any connections between this incident and similar ones.
Stocco says that social media exposure also led to the January 27 arrest of Gerald Snyder of Farmingdale in connection with a township home burglary, and for shoplifting charges against Todd Timmerman of Toms River.
