Police: Woman Used Obituaries To Find Targets For Burglary
GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Police in the suburbs of New York City say a woman was using local obituaries to choose victims to rob while they were busy attending funeral services.
Greenburgh police said Saturday that a 26-year-old Bronx woman was charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and other charges. Investigators say they noticed a pattern in the robberies — all of the people targeted were recently featured in obituaries as next of kin. All of the obituaries also featured detailed funeral arraignments.
Police say the woman robbed the families while they were at funeral services. Police said they found stolen property from a February burglary during the arrest.
The woman was released on bond.
