Police arrested a man suspected of posing as a mourner at a military funeral, then breaking into a car.

Jose Angel Abrajan, 31, was taken into custody Thursday morning on suspicion of grand theft.

Investigators say he pretended to be a mourner at the funeral of a former U.S. Marine and Vietnam veteran at Oakdale Cemetery on June 18.

A family member discovered her purse had been taken from her SUV after the service.

Pictures taken at the funeral show the suspect in the background breaking into the vehicle.

Abrajan was also seen on surveillance video at a local In-N-Out trying to buy food with the victim's credit card.

Abrajan is being held on $45,000 bail.
