NEW YORK, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- A Brooklyn, N.Y., man is in jail after investigators say he brazenly stole religious items, including a $10,000 silver menorah.

Denis Ildatov, 25, allegedly was caught on tape stealing the menorah Aug. 22 from Yael Zion's home in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, the New York Daily News reported. Ildatov was also linked to the theft of a Torah scroll taken from a synagogue Aug. 13. Several of the items had been sold at various pawn shops in the city.

The newspaper reported Ildatov has offered a written confession to some of the thefts. A judge has ordered him held on $90,000 bail.
