HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A man is wanted for stealing from a mosque, and the crime was caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows the guy walking into Huntsville's Islamic Center just after 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The video shows that he looks around the corner before trying to break open the donation box on the wall. When that didn't work, he went for the collection plates, which only had change in them.

Mosque leaders said if he really needed help, all he had to do was ask.

"If this man came and knocked at the door and said, 'I'm hungry and need some money,' he would leave with some money or food, clothes anything," said Mohamed Mahdi with the Huntsville Islamic Center.

Mahdi said the thief got away with less than $15.

If you recognize the man, call Huntsville Police.
