Police are investigating the theft of an SUV from an east Salina mortuary.

Sometime on Tuesday or Wednesday, someone stole a blue 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara belonging to Roselawn Mortuary from the facility at 1910 E. Crawford Street, Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning. The key fob was in the vehicle.

The SUV had a Kansas license plate of 718 ECO and was valued at $10,000.

Forrester said there was no sign of forced entry, but a door at the facility was found open.

Tracks indicated that the SUV pulled onto E. Crawford Street, but did so by driving off a large concrete ledge, which possibly caused damage to the front bumper, Forrester said.
