Princeton Police this afternoon charged a Philadelphia man with one count of second-degree robbery and one count of third-degree theft for allegedly stealing a $46,000 Rolex Sky-Dweller watch from Hamilton Jewelers on Oct. 5.
Taquan E. Knight, 22, was arrested for a similar robbery in Pittsburgh, Pa, last Tuesday, Oct. 7th, when he attempted to flee a jewelry store with a Rolex watch. He was stopped and detained by a store security officer until police arrived. Knight is being held at the Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh on charges stemming from the theft.
Networking between police agencies in Princeton and Pittsburgh, Pa, led to Knight’s identification as the alleged thief in the Hamilton Jewelers case.
