EVESHAM, N.J. — Authorities say a member of the Air Force thwarted a nearly $26,000 smash-and-grab robbery at a store in southern New Jersey.

Police say a man wearing a ski mask walked into the T.J. Maxx store in Evesham on Sunday and smashed a jewelry case with a rock.

Police say the suspect rifled $25,797 worth of watches into a bag before he was tackled by the serviceman.

The suspect lost his mask during the struggle and fled the store without the loot.

Police have not released the name of the serviceman.
