Police recently arrested two Palestinian Authority Arabs from the Hebron area who broke into a U.S. embassy warehouse in Jerusalem and stole property last month, the Israel Police said.

The suspects, both men in their 20s from the town of Tarqumiyah, worked at a construction site near the embassy in the capital’s Arnona neighborhood.


According to the police, the pair took advantage of their work permit in Israel to steal “maintenance property” during a “series of break-ins.”

The burglars were eventually apprehended and taken in for questioning, a spokesperson said, adding that the investigation is ongoing.

Their initial pre-trial detention was set to expire on Thursday.
