Man Wanted in Connection with Friday Night Burglary of the Eldridge Street Synagogue
Police are searching for a man they say robbed the Eldridge Street Synagogue last Friday night. During Jewish Sabbath.
At approximately 8:45pm, the perp was caught on surveillance footage entering the historic house of worship through a secured side window. Once inside, he stole a laptop and a nearly-empty cash box.
It wasn’t until the next afternoon (January 25) that a synagogue custodian discovered the property missing, and alerted the 5th Precinct.
“We have been working with the local police and feel confident that we’re in good hands,” a synagogue spokesperson tells us.
Lucky for the Eldridge Street Synagogue, this perp didn’t seem interested in damaging the historic building.
