Dallas police are looking for two men who broke into a Hare Krishna temple the night of June 13 and stole thousands of dollars in property.

The burglars picked a lock or rattled a gate in the parking lot of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness temple in Old East Dallas, property manager Mike Meyer said.

The temple, at 5430 Gurley Ave., also houses Kalachandji's, a vegetarian restaurant that was founded a few years after the temple in the 1970s.

Once inside, the men went into a bedroom where a priest was sleeping and barricaded him in using a TV to block one door and a chair to jam a second door, Meyer said.  The men entered the priest's office and  stole his computer and billfold with about $100 of cash, Meyer said.

Then the men headed downstairs, where they grabbed tools, Meyer said. He estimates the intruders took about $8,000 worth of property.
