On September 7th, a burglary took place inside the “Chua Thien An” Buddhist Temple located at 4354 W. McKinley Ave. in Fresno.

Three men entered the gated property. Once inside the building, they were able to find and steal an undisclosed amount of cash. As the suspects fled, a member of the temple chased after them and recorded video of their vehicle. It is described as dark colored, newer model Chevy Tahoe.

Video inside the temple captured images of two of the men. One suspect, who wore a hat, has a tattoo on the inside of his left forearm. He also has a tattoo on his upper right arm and on the outside of his right forearm.
