Rochester Hills mosque vandal arrested

Ryan Lee Ahern, a 33-year-old from Rochester Hills, was arrested on Oct. 15 for smashing a window at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Center.

Oakland County Sheriff's Detectives identified him from the community center's surveillance video.

A hammer was believed to be used in the crime committed just a week ago. Ahern is also a person of interest in other acts of vandalism, those at non-religious locations.

Detectives said that they believe the vandalism was a random act and not a hate crime.

Ahern was arraigned on Oct 16. on a $10,000 cash surety or 10% bond. Currently, he is free after posting $1,000. No new court date has been set.
