Police want to find a suspect behind a string of break-ins at an Islamic center.

Frankfort Police say a burglar was caught on video breaking into the Islamic Center on Schenkel Lane in late November. The person in the video breaks the front window, goes into the building and takes cash from a donation box.

In a post on Facebook, Police said there have been several burglaries at the center recently.

Ashiq Zaman with the center says that when the center first opened in 2003 they never had any issues. He says the recent break-ins have built up and they believe that few hundred dollars have been stolen.

"We come here for prayer, for mental price and tranquility. No one wants to come here anymore. That sense of safety is gone," said Zaman.
