Two individuals aged 19 and 28 were indicted on Sunday for allegedly breaking into two synagogues and a private home in Beersheba.

Worshippers went to pray in their local synagogue on Heshin Street. While they were praying, two individuals hid in one of the synagogue's side rooms until the prayer ended. When the synagogue was locked, they proceeded to steal money from the charity box and detach the synagogue safe.

The suspects carried out a second Beersheba synagogue robbery, on David Alro'i Street, when they entered from the women's section and proceeded to the synagogue hall, where they broke into the safe.

Suspicion arose that the two suspects also broke into a private home in Beersheba's Nahal Ashan neighborhood by copying the key they saw in the door and then coming back later with their copied key to burgle the house.

The Israel Police filed an indictment against the two individuals and asked that their arrest be extended until proceedings have been completed.
