QUEENS (PIX11) – While Annie Boghossian and her family were burying her grandmother, about a half a mile away from the burial site, their cars were broken into.

It was during the funeral of Josefina Iskandaria at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Flushing Queens, that family members claim perpetrators broke into five parked cars of people attending the service.

It happened on Friday around 2:30 in the afternoon.

They said purses were stolen from three of the cars. But, it gets worse.

Within hours, the family claims their credit cards were racking up charges all over Queens and on Long Island.

An engagement ring and other jewels they said were also taken from cars.

More than what was stolen; they feel betrayed and bewildered by what they feel is such a despicable act — theft at a funeral.
