A thief that recently robbed a Queens synagogue  of more than a dozen religious relics has been caught, police said.

The incident occurred at Congregation Rachel Degel Israel sometime between February 18 and February 25, cops said, when three silver Torah crowns, two silver Torah mini-crowns, three silver Torah breastplates, four silver Torah points and one silver cup were removed from the site.

As a result of media attention, police received information which led to an arrest and the recovery of all the items with the exception of two silver Torah Pointers.

Efram Sanders, 28, is charged with burglary, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
