More information is now coming out regarding the case at Pace University where a former student destroyed a Koran by throwing it in a toilet. According to a recent news article, the former student, who is now out on bail, was caught because the police had surveillance footage of him leaving a meditation room where Korans were stored.
If it turns out that the destroyed Koran was stolen, the man can most likely be charged with a crime. But, as Greg points out in an earlier post, authorities must treat this crime just like any other property destruction offense.
