YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Lodi police detective investigating the theft of a resident’s camera equipment in Newark set up a sting and arrested a Jersey City man earlier today, authorities said.

Detective Sgt. Justin Bertone arranged to “buy” the stolen items after the victim spotted them on Craigslist, Lt. Robert Salerno said this afternoon.

Bertone set up a meeting in Lodi, then arrested Raul Ovalles, 31, of Summit Avenue, on charges of receiving stolen property.

The victim got his property back and Ovalles was released pending a court hearing.
