The burglary at Green Hills Mortuary occurred sometime from Aug. 27 to Sept. 3, authorities said.
Two glass display cases inside a mausoleum were opened and the jewelry stolen, authorities said. The two people in the surveillance photos were seen looking at the display cases.
The items stolen were personal mementos, including a wedding ring, that were not of high monetary value, sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Moffett said.
Anyone with information on the two in the photos was asked to contact Detective Rick McKaig at 310-891-3217.
