Ancient Grave Disturbed in Jerusalem

According to the Israel National News ('Man Caught Robbing Grave, Claims He's an Exorcist', 09/07/2015), on Wednesday, Israeli authorities arrested a man and his family on Jerusalem's Mount Scopus for allegedly trying to rob an ancient grave. It is the second time in the past year that the antiquities theft prevention unit has succeeded in stopping a gang of antiquities thieves in this important site (the area of Mount Scopus is one of the richest areas with tombs from the Second Temple era in Jerusalem).
The family, residents of the Issawiya neighborhood, were caught red-handed by officials from the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). On questioning, the man said that he was an exorcist trying to cast out a demon.[...] The family's alleged crimes are punishable by up to five years in prison. All six suspects have been released on bail.
