More Than 1,000 Yemenite Shofars Stolen in Crown Heights


The following is via the NY Post:

A massive load of more than 1,000 polished Yemenite Shofars or antelope horns were stolen from a Brooklyn home, police said Friday.

A 70-year-old Crown Heights man was inside his garage at Montgomery Street and Albany Avenue on Thursday at around 3:45 p.m. when he discovered that a thief had forcibly busted through his front garage door and swiped about 32 boxes containing 1,250 pieces of the ancient musical horns made from the Kudu antelope in Africa.

The crook remains on the loose.

The NYPD has put out a photo of a polished Yemenite Shofar similar to the ones stolen from the victim – and is asking anyone with information about the theft to call the department’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477.
