Police in Dearborn are sending out an alert tonight after items were stolen from worshippers praying at a mosque located on Vernor. 

Police say the suspect entered the mosque during prayer service and removed personal items from a storage shelf. The two latest incidents occurred on Oct.17 and Oct. 24.

"This type of crime in a house of worship will not be tolerated," said Dearborn Chief of Police Ronald Haddad.

The suspect is described as a white man, approximately 5-foot-10 with a thin build, mustache and possibly a goatee. 

The man has short hair and is balding. 

Police say the suspect is known to walk around the area of Dix and Vernor.
