Suspect in Islamic Center Theft Scheduled for Plea Hearing
Court records say a man charged with breaking into the Islamic Center of Lawrence and stealing donations boxes was in possession of almost $1,200 in cash when he was arrested in a Kansas City suburb several days later.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the affidavit in the case against 32-year-old Amadou Oury Bah says the Aug. 13 burglary happened shortly after the holiday Eid al-Adha. One leader estimated that between $1,000 and $2,000 was stolen.
Bah is scheduled Wednesday for a plea hearing in the Lawrence case. He is charged with burglary, theft and criminal damage to property.
