CLIFTON, N.J. -- Clifton detectives took two juveniles into custody in conjunction with the Christmas Eve burglary of a local mosque.

Both face Family Court hearings on delinquency complaints charging them with burglarizing the Islamic Center of Passaic County on Pershing Road and taking $20 from the donation box, Lt. Robert Bracken said Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, police continued to investigate a separate burglary at the mosque on Christmas Day, when two intruders took more than $300 in donations, Bracken said.

The bandits in both thefts entered through unlocked doors, the lieutenant said.
