French police. David Monniaux.

French police arrested two suspected thieves who disguised themselves as Orthodox Jews with fake beards on Monday, charging them with robbing a number of jewelry stores over several months, according to Israel National News. French officials are still on the hunt for a third suspect who has not yet been apprehended.

Police reported that the three Gentiles, whose ages ranged from 19-20, felt that the disguise made it easier for them to obtain access to rob the jewelry stores without arousing suspicion, because religious Jews are not viewed as dangerous in France.
