TOMS RIVER — A man wanted for allegedly stealing watches from an upstate New York jewelry store and a 2011 robbery in Toms River was arrested Saturday in North Bergen, authorities and reports said.

Daniel Sable, 27, was being held at the Ocean County Jail on charges, including robbery and eluding law enforcement officers, according to Ocean County Department of Corrections records.

Sable stole two Rolex watches valued at $59,800 from Mann’s Jewelers store in Brighton, New York, on Tuesday, according to U.S. Marshal of the Western District of New York Charles Salina and Brighton Police Chief Mark Henderson.

Based on the investigation and tips from the public, the U.S. Marshals Task Force, based in Rochester, New York, learned Sable was in the North Bergen-area, the officials said in a news release. Marshals in Rochester alerted colleagues in New Jersey about the case.

Authorities caught up with Sable at a PNC bank branch around 9:30 a.m. in North Bergen, where U.S. Marshals arrested the wanted man, according to officials. He allegedly tried to flee from the law enforcement officers.

“Due to the public’s assistance we were able to apprehend him less than 48 hours after receiving the case,” said Salina, who thanked task force officers and tipsters for helping bring the arrest.

Sable was also being sought for a 2011 robbery at a Wells Fargo branch in Toms River, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported. Toms River police could not immediately provide details on that charge. 

Sable would be held at the Ocean County Jail before extradition to face charges in New York, officials said. He was also wanted by the New York Division of Parole.
