A pair of Southland residents have been charged with breaking into cars at local cemeteries and funeral homes, the Cook County sheriff's office said, and authorities are questioning them about their roles in even more thefts.

Stacy Egan, 23, of Orland Park, and Thomas Beach, 22, of Worth, are suspected of a rash of thefts that took place throughout the summer, mostly at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Worth.

The string of thefts ended Friday when the pair was pulled over in Chicago Ridge and police found “several items in their possession about which the Cook County Sheriff's Department had sent out bulletins,” according to a news release.
During questioning, Egan told investigators that the pair “specifically targeted unlocked cars at that cemetery, striking while families were at gravesites,” according to the release.

The thefts later expanded to cars parked at funeral homes, authorities said.

Egan, 23, of the 11900 block of Chisholm Trail, Orland Park, was charged with four counts of felony burglary and criminal trespassing to vehicles. Beach, of the 10200 block of South Ridgeland Avenue, Worth, was charged with one count of felony burglary and criminal trespassing to vehicles.

Investigators from Oak Lawn, Worth, Chicago Ridge and the Cook County Sheriff’s Department are now looking into other cemetery and funeral home burglaries reported in their areas in recent months.

Both are free on $75,000 bail
