As the investigation continued, officers identified Burnette as a man who had been caught in surveillance footage committing several crimes, including allegedly throwing a rock through someone’s window, vandalizing prayer books and stealing a bicycle from the Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel of Riverdale.

Burnette is being charged with burglary as a hate crime in addition to several charges “related to the many acts of vandalism as hate crimes that have taken place in this community,” NYPD Deputy Inspector Jessica Corey said in a news conference Saturday.


Burnette is also allegedly responsible for smashing windows and front doors of other synagogues in the area, USA Today reported.
