Police Looking For Suspect Wanted For Stealing From Mosque Donation Box

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police in Manhattan are trying to find a man who they say has been dipping into the donations at a house of prayer.

Surveillance video captured the suspect during the first of  two robberies at the Islamic Cultural Center on the Upper East Side.
 
On June 8, police say he went into the mosque during morning prayers and hid in a maintenance closet until the building was empty then stole money from the donation box.

Police say he robbed the mosque again on Thursday.

    Well I guess that is one way a mosque can donate to terrorists with out being caught. have the money stolen by a member and when they are ready to donate have a Muslim member steel it and donate it for them. for one thing that is a Muslim member of the mosque he knew where to go to get the money. a non Muslim would not know and the second time he broke a window to put the blame on a Non-Muslim the second time the mosque did not move the location of the money knowing it was stolen once already and the Muslim looked straight at the camera he knew the camera was there and would be distorted a Non Muslim member would not know that or do that.
    In other words the head of the mosque is in on it, Muslims will not steel from other Muslims unless it is for a reason like insurance fraud or terrorists. my bet both and I bet a Non-Muslim will get the blame
