A description of the male offender was given and a search of the town located the male in a vehicle.
The male was detained and searched and a quantity of cannabis was also found.
A 17-year-old male from Cheadle was arrested for theft and possession of a controlled substance.
He has been bailed until end of April pending further inquiries.
Pc Stubbs said; "This was reported to me via the Cheadle Police Twitter Account as the supervisor from the ASDA was following me on twitter and was aware I was on duty in the area at the time the offence occurred.
"Although I would ask members of the public to use the 101 or 999 system to report crimes to Police this shows that Police use of social media tools does work and it is a useful tool to get information out to the public.
"I can be followed on twitter on @cheadlepolice"
