Police say the man suspected of burning several Jewish symbols in Brooklyn has been taken into custody.
Authorities had been looking for Rubin Ublies.
The 35-year-old has dozens of past arrests for crimes including robbery, drug possession, weapons possession and grand larceny.
Police say Ublies is the man seen in surveillance pictures taken inside a Clymer Street building where a mezuzah was found burned Tuesday.
A mezuzah is a small portion of the Torah in a protective case, hung on the door posts of Jewish homes.
Eleven others were burned in a building a block away on Taylor Street Monday, which was Holocaust Remembrance Day.
