Two Palestinians were under arrest Sunday for allegedly breaking into the home of a Jerusalem court judge, police said. The arrest of the two Palestinian suspects brought to seven the number of Palestinians apprehended in the break-in and burglary. All seven suspects have been remanded in custody. All seven suspects, who have criminal records, deny the charges against them. A police search of their homes uncovered electrical appliances and other personal belongings that were stolen in the break-in earlier this month of the city home of District Court Judge Hannah Ben Ami, and a relative who lived nearby, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. Ben Ami recently convicted two crime lords, and police had previously suspected that the Jerusalem mobsters were involved in the break-in.
