ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man suspected of stealing $50,000 in jewels is in custody after being chased down by a Santa Fe Police sergeant and former American Ninja Warrior reality show competitor.

KOB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1IMxlWo) Sgt. Paul Joyce responded to a call Saturday about a suspicious man in possession of a plastic bag of jewelry. The suspect ran, and Joyce says his experience on NBC’s obstacle course competition was, if not an aid, certainly not a detriment to catching up with the man and arresting him.

Santa Fe jewelry store owner Tom Broadley said that last month, a man walked into Earth Fire Gems Gallery, slid open an unlocked cage, and “brazenly” took about $50,000 in gold rings and star sapphires.

Eduardo Romero is in custody at Santa Fe County Jail.
