    Police in New Jersey are trying to track down a man captured on surveillance video, dancing as he checks out clothing during an attempted shoplifting trip at K-Mart.

    Police in New Jersey are trying to track down a man captured on surveillance video, dancing as he checks out clothing during an attempted shoplifting trip at K-Mart.

    The Gloucester Township Police Department posted surveillance video of the would-be shoplifter on its YouTube page last month, hoping the public can help identify the man.

    The suspect attempted to shoplift two women's dresses from a K-Mart store on Blackwood Clementon Road, according to police. He is seen on the video rifling through clothing when he suddenly breaks out in a dance.

    Later in the video, he's seen being confronted by store security. That's when he throws his stolen merchandise on the ground and runs out the front doors.

    He reportedly tried to flee the area in a dark-colored vehicle, possibly a Toyota Camry, said police.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the tip line at 856-842-5560 or the police department at 856-228-4500.

    Gloucester Township Police have been heavily engaging social media in their attempts to solve open investigations, maintaining Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts. The department has more than 48,770 upload videos on its YouTube channel and more than 7,000 subscribers on Facebook.
