Graveyard guitar robber faces jail

The News 1 Dec

Fender Telecaster guitar
A guitar lover would not want an expensive guitar lying in a graveyard. This is exactly what Steven Conard, a Wisconsin cemetery worker did - stealing a guitar from a casket.

The cream-colored Fender Telecaster was laid upon the body of Randall Jourdan, who wished to be buried with his "pride and joy." The guitar was recovered from the suspect's home the next day.

"I have to have that guitar. It's too expensive to be in a crypt," Steven Conard later said. He could be jailed for 10 years for this "guitarly theft."
