CORAM, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A man was arrested on Long Island Tuesday and charged with burglarizing a house of worship earlier this month.

A suspect walked into the Chabad House of Coram, at 87 Mt. Sinai Coram Rd. in Coram, Suffolk County police said. He stole coins, police said.

The incident was caught on surveillance video, police said.
