Joseph Schrieber threatened to burn down the mosque weeks ago according to coworkers.
The damage inside the mosque is estimated to be around $100-thousand. Some of the worshipers are volunteering to help with the clean-up and debris removal. A campaign is underway to raise money to rebuild the mosque. Over $30-thousand dollars have been raised.
On a video posted on the St Lucie Sheriff’s Office website it appears that Schrieber is talking on the telephone before he lit the fire.
