LOS ANGELES (AP) - El Cajon police say they have arrested two men and a woman they believe are part of a burglary ring that targeted homes while residents were attending funerals.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1ebq5YB ) that officials say a dozen such burglaries were reported in San Diego County from January to May.

Lt. Frank La Haye says the suspects checked public obituaries and used the Internet to find the address of those who died or their relatives.

Police say they found stolen items worth about $100,000 when executing search warrants.

La Haye says a computer search determined the group’s criminal intentions. He says the break-ins were forced entry in some cases and through open windows in others.

The county Sheriff’s Department and San Diego Police Department also investigated the case.
