A convicted sex offender has been arrested for taking pictures of a 7-year-old boy under a bathroom stall at the Costco in Stafford Township.

Police responded to the store last Friday afternoon after getting an initial report of a suspicious person but upon talking to the little boy's father, they learned there was more going on at the store.

Upon further investigation, Stafford Police said they learned that 39-year-old Christopher Dinverno of Barnegat was involved in previous incidents at Costco.
