Israeli police arrest 4 in Italy synagogue theft

Israeli police have arrested four men in the theft of religious items valued at more than $1 million from a synagogue in Italy, a police spokesman said Monday.

The four suspects – Israelis in their 20s – were arrested Saturday, spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. They are accused of stealing the items from Milan’s central synagogue last week and smuggling them to Israel.

The Jewish community of Milan reported the theft on Friday, saying in a statement that a golden key to the ark holding the synagogue’s Torah scrolls was taken along with “very precious silver objects,” including ornaments for Torah scrolls.
