STAFFORD – An ongoing shoplifting investigation in Stafford has finally come to a close after numerous tips and social media leads prompted the suspects to come forward. On Nov. 26, Anne Marie Locke, 32, and Carol McCall, 41, of Barnegat turned themselves in after the Stafford Police Department received several tips on their identities, according to police officials.

The incident, which occurred on Nov. 16 at the Shoprite in Manahawkin, spurred an investigation of the theft of over $1,200 items from the store.

A Facebook post was made on Nov. 21 requesting the identities of the two women whose photos had been captured in the store. The post asked that any information be sent to the email of Patrolman Allen Jillson, the lead investigator and arresting officer on the case.

After being charged with shoplifting and conspiracy to shoplift, both Locke and McCall have been processed and released, agreeing to a future court appearance.

Stafford Police thank the public that helped lead to the arrest through social media leads. They emphasize that charges are simply accusations and the defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
