Garrison and two other men robbed David Harvey Jewelers on June 28, 2011 and made off with more than $400,000 worth of high-end watches, police said. The other two men remain at large.

The getaway car was later found in the Bronx, and a glove with Garrison’s DNA was discovered inside, authorities said.

Det. Mark Capelli told WCBS 880’s Fran Schneidau that other evidence from the robbery, including shattered glass from the  store’s display cases, was recovered from the car.

Garrison is detained on $500,000 bail.
