Amsterdam Buddhist temple burglars caught
AMSTERDAM (CBS6) -- Police arrested two men accused of stealing Buddhist statues, and believed to be connected with other area robberies, from a Buddhist temple Tuesday.
Gerald Skrocki sent photos of the damage, saying eight statues were stolen, two of which were jewel-encrusted and imported from China. He added, "The donation box was broken into and cash taken as well as the theft of an amplifier and speaker system, and copper piping."
Several stolen items have been recovered. But police are continuing to look for a third suspect, Harry Delvalle, who is believed to have fled to the Rochester, NY area. Video
