Wichita, Lawrence police working to solve Islamic Center burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Wichita and Lawrence police are working together to determine if the same person burglarized Islamic centers in the cities.

Lawrence Police posted on social media asking for help identifying the man who burglarized the Islamic center last week.   The man got away with between $1,000 and $2,000 in cash.   Surveillance video showed  a black man in his twenties wearing a red hoodie, red cap and blue jeans.   He possibly left the scene in a red or maroon four-door sedan.

The car matches the vehicle seen the next day following a burglary at the Islamic Society of Wichita, 6655 E. 34th North.   

Wichita Police said they are in touch with Lawrence investigators, comparing the two cases.
