The Burlington Police Department is investigating a break-in at the Burlington Islamic Center. 


Lieutenant Detective Michael McDade said that on September 15 a suspect entered the front door of the center. The door had been left improperly secured after normal activity and the suspect was able to get inside. 


Once inside the suspect broke into two donation collection boxes and took an as-yet-unknown amount of money. Lt. McDade said the suspect also attempted to break into other boxes without success. 


Police are reviewing surveillance video and reaching out to potential witnesses. This is an active investigation and we will update the story if police provide a description, video or still images in an attempt to get assistance from the public.
