LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - It does not matter what religion you subscribe to, if any, but there's little question a Mosque is a house of worship and sacred to Muslims.  But bacon? Not so much!

This is not your typical Las Vegas Strip story.

Pork is considered unclean in the Islamic tradition. Muslims are forbidden from eating it or touching it. That's why raw bacon found wrapped around door handles outside a Vegas Mosque is being described as a hate crime.

Vegas police are searching for a man caught on surveillance cameras tossing bacon at the back door of the Mosque. Then he is seen going for seconds at the front door. (These bacon bits of video should help, not HAM-per the investigation.)

Needless-to-say, cops hope to very quickly wrap up this case!
