Man Accused of Burglarizing Homes While Families Attend Funerals

According to reports, a Central Florida man was arrested after a string of burglaries that targeted the homes of families out attending funerals.

Ronald Rose, 42, allegedly began the burglary spree on Oct 1 and ended with his arrest on Feb 8. Authorities say the vast majority of Rose’s burglaries occurred in the daytime while victims were away at funerals. Investigators say the accused stole jewelry, watches, silver, coins, and firearms.

After he was nabbed by police, Rose confessed to just one of the 10 burglaries he’s implicated in.

“People who burglarize or steal are low, so victimizing people during a time when they are grieving the loss of a loved one…that’s lower than low,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “Someone who is willing to take advantage of people at a time like this has no compassion or consideration, and is a true menace to society.”
