LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) – A suburban Kansas City, Missouri, man has been ordered to spend 45 years in prison for burglarizing homes while their occupants were attending funerals.

The Kansas City Star reports that 36-year-old Dale Lee Parsons of Excelsior Springs was sentenced Monday in Clay County.

Parsons pleaded guilty June 13 to burglary, possession of stolen property, attempted burglary, stealing and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Clay County Prosecutor Daniel White says a series of break-ins took place in October and November of last year. He called the case “very troubling” and the break-ins “unconscionable.”

It was not immediately clear how many burglaries have been linked to Parsons.
