Hunt Suspect In Islamic Center Robbery

By Liz Goff
Police are searching for a masked man who stole $7,000 from an Islamic center in Long Island City.

Investigators recovered surveillance footage that shows the masked suspect breaking into the Islamic Center of Bosnia and Herzegovina at about 9 a.m. on March 8, through a side door of the building at 37-46 Crescent Street in Dutch Kills.

The suspect used a crowbar to force open two donation boxes and an office door at the center, police said. He grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash from each of the donation boxes, then forced open the office door, grabbed cash from the office and fled, police said.

The thief made off with a total of  $7,000 in cash, police said.
