Russell Co. funeral home broken into

RUSSELL COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - East Alabama authorities are investigating after a Russell County Funeral home was broken into Monday morning.

Phenix City police responded to the Sumbry Mortuary, where Arthur Sumbry Sr. told them his front door had been kicked in.

According to police, a flat screen television display was taken. Sumbry says the display was a way for visitors to view the casket from different room when the building became too crowded.

Police suspect the burglar may have attended a funeral there in the last few weeks.
