By Barbara A. Preston | Posted December 19, 2023

A customer inadvertently placed her cellular telephone on a shelf at the Skillman ShopRite on Route 206 while grocery shopping on December 11.

Upon realizing her phone was missing, she re-traced her steps and could not locate the phone. Montgomery Township police said a review of the store’s security camera footage and other investigative techniques led to the identification of a suspect—Rosa E. Munoz-Chavez, 47, of Monmouth Junction.

The security camera footage also revealed the suspect was engaged in shoplifting while in the store. Police say Munoz-Chavez was observed placing numerous items in her purse and bypassing the cashiers upon exiting the store.

Montgomery detectives contacted the suspect and requested she report to police headquarters. Munoz-Chavez surrendered the stolen cellular telephone to police on December 14. (Police returned it to the victim). 

Munoz-Chavez was charged with theft and shoplifting and released from police custody. She will appear in Montgomery Municipal Court. ■
