Suspects in Custody in Betar Illit Break-Ins


mishA number of suspects are in custody in connection to a series of break-ins in the community of Betar Illit. The rash of home break-ins led to residents protesting, demanding the city and law-enforcement do more to protect the homes of citizens of the chareidi city.

While residents believed the thieves came from the adjacent Arab village, police working with civilian security and undercover agents arrested two residents of the city. Police recovered items believed stolen from the homes of the suspects.
