LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Visiting the South Florida National Cemetery will never be the same for Jenna King. Burglars smashed out the window of her friend Alexandra Esposito's car while the pair paid respects to King's father this past Sunday.
"It was heart-wrenching. We left for 5 minutes and came back and everything was shattered," says Esposito.
The thieves took purses, cash and electronics. It's the second car burglar at the cemetery in one week.
"It's disgusting, I've never heard of anything... it's unheard of in a cemetery when you're paying respects to your loved ones," says King.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is looking for suspects. Cemetery staff members plan to post signs warning visitors not to leave valuables in parked cars.
