Arrested: Polk County Man Was Robbing Homes While People Were At Funerals


A Polk County man is accused of burglarizing homes of the recently deceased or the families of those who had passed while attending funerals.

Deputies arrested Ronald Rose for at least 10 burglaries and they believe there could be more victims in other counties. A detective investigating one of the burglaries noted that there were at least nine other break-ins at homes where the victim was at a funeral that had been publicly noted in an obituary. In each case, the thief targets jewelry, coins, silver, and guns.

Police say Rose admitted to one of the burglaries during questioning. Items from the other nine burglaries were found inside the man’s home and his vehicle, a gray Cadillac CTS, matched witness descriptions of the car used in some of the break-ins.
