DNA evidence was used to link a suspect to a break-in at a Petah Tikva synagogue last week, police announced on Sunday.
One thousand shekels and a cell phone were taken from the synagogue during the robbery, police said.
Detectives tracked down a suspect with the aid of forensic evidence.
"The suspect has linked himself to the suspicions against him," police said in a statement.
Police are seeking a second suspect in connection with the investigation.
