Police say tips from the public led them to an arrest in the burglary of a Queens synagogue.
Efram Sanders, 28, was arrested Tuesday and was facing burglary, grand larceny and stolen-property charges in connection with the break-in at Congregation Degel Israel in Kew Gardens Hills.
More than a dozen items were taken, including silver torah crowns and breastplates, worth thousands of dollars in all.
Police say they were able to recover all stolen items except for two silver pointers.
