LEITCHFIELD, Ky. (AP) - Police in Kentucky are seeking a man who broke into a funeral home and stole several items from a man who was scheduled to be buried.

WYMT-TV reported Sunday that surveillance video shows the man going inside Watson and Hunt Funeral Home in Leitchfield last week, taking a nap, drinking soda and stealing candy and the keys to a hearse. The suspect then took clothing and jewelry belonging to a man who was to be buried.

Police say the suspect might be connected to a Walmart theft last week.

The funeral home director said he received tips about the man’s identity, but police are still investigating.
