DENVER — A member of a Colorado military Honor Guard says someone stole his personal vehicle during a funeral service at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver.

Capt. John Moreland tells KUSA-TV in Denver that his 2012 Honda Pilot was stolen late Friday morning.

Moreland says he had left his keys in the car while he participated in the service.

He says he found it appalling that someone would do such a thing at a cemetery, especially a military cemetery.

Moreland, who is a pastor for the Denver Christian Bible Church, says his phone, laptop, 20 years of ministry material and the church debit card were in the vehicle.

He has filed a report with police, but he hopes that the thief will have a change of heart and return his belongings.
