LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The person charged for vandalizing the South Street Temple has since been cited for nine different violations.

On Sept. 15, Lincoln Police began investigating two counterfeit cases at a Runza, 937 S 13th St. Employees claimed a male suspect paid with two fake $20 bills.

Officers obtained surveillance video from Runza to analyze.

Months later, in early December, Lincoln Police began investigating a car break-in near the 2200 block of N. 82nd Street. The victim claimed her wallet was taken, about a $230 loss, and several unauthorized charges were made on her bank cards.

A nearby Ring doorbell caught the theft on video, which police took a copy of as evidence.

Officers working the counterfeit and theft cases were reviewing the security footage obtained when another investigator, working on an unrelated case, recognized the suspect in both videos.

According to the investigator, the video showed 21-year-old Noah Miller, who was charged back in January for vandalizing the South Street Temple with hate speech.

Miller was located at his residence on Dec. 11 and was placed under arrest. He was cited for first-degree forgery and theft.

Again, since being charged in the Synagogue vandalism, Miller has been cited nine different times in connection to larcenies, forgeries, and controlled substance violations.
