The unemployed 19-year-old was accused of trying to steal an alms box belonging to a mosque on 8 January by dragging the container and hiding it in the mosque’s mortuary.

Do you know what you did wrong? People donated the money to pay for the construction of the mosque, but you tried to steal and put it in the mortuary. Hope this thing becomes a lesson for you.
