MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Manhattan police are trying to determine why someone broke into the mausoleum of a prominent Manhattan family.

The burglars caused about $10,000 damage during the weekend break-in at the Wareham family mausoleum at Sunset Cemetery but they apparently did not steal anything.

The burglars pried off the marble facing William Wareham's crypt and damaged the copper casing around his casket. Police spokesman Matt Droge says it appeared the burglars tried to open the copper casket but they were unsuccessful.

Burglars also broke into the mausoleum in April 2012 but didn't take anything.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (http://bit.ly/12EfJZw ) William Wareham was the brother of H.P. Wareham, generally regarded as the greatest entrepreneur in the city's history. H.P. is also buried in the mausoleum.
