In response to surveillance video that was placed on the Gloucester Township Police YouTube channel a male suspect has been identified and arrested. On 10/17/11 a male stole a wallet from the Gloucester Township Library. The male suspect then used a credit card from the wallet at a Walmart located in Deptford. The video was placed on YouTube on 10/26/11 requesting assistance form the public in identifying the male suspect.
An anonymous tip was received by the Gloucester Township Police Department on 10-28-2011 which led Gloucester Township Police Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Unit to the Scenic Falls Apartments to speak with the suspect later identified as David Council. Detectives continued their investigation in Gloucester Township and worked with Detectives in neighboring Deptford Township. Their efforts determined that David Council committed the theft of the wallet and subsequently used the credit card at the Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods in Deptford Township. The female subject also observed in the video, Amber Council, was found to have an outstanding warrant for her arrest and she was taken into custody at the Scenic Falls Apartments.
David Council was charged in Gloucester Township with Theft. Both David and Amber Council were also charged by the Deptford Police Department for Fraud and Unauthorized Use of a Credit Card. Both were released pending a future court hearing.
