Footage showing a man allegedly stealing money from charity boxes at Al Mujahidin Mosque in Kalibata, Pancoran, South Jakarta, went viral.

The CCTV footage, dated Sept. 1, shows that the man entered the empty mosque from a window.

He looked around and approached the box on the first floor. The man then went to the second floor and tried to open the charity box.

Pancoran Police chief Comr. Budi said the police had received a report about the case on Wednesday.

“We are still looking for the alleged thief and his identity. Witnesses said they didn’t know who the man was,” Budi said on Thursday.

Budi added that the mosque caretakers did not know how much money had been taken by the alleged thief. (cal)
