Synagogue burglar caught on camera

(JTA) — Police have released the video of a shirtless burglar at a Florida synagogue in a bid to catch the thief.

The burglar broke into Temple Beth Israel in Deerfield Beach on Jan. 25. He tied a tablecloth around his head and tried on the rabbi’s jacket before leaving about two hours later with bottles of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Apparently intoxicated, the intruder had gathered computers, food and silverware to steal. He ripped surveillance cameras from the wall before leaving.

Police released the video last Friday.
