Families attending funerals being hit with theft

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There's a disturbing trend in Louisville where police say families attending funerals are becoming crime victims.

Louisville Metro Police tell us in the last three months, there have been 16 burglaries at homes where loved ones were attending a funeral or visitation.

They believe criminals do their research after reading information in obituaries, and that makes people easy targets.

Police recommend having someone stay at your home during a visitation and funeral.
