Teens accused of stealing funeral home limo
PIERRE PART - Deputies arrested two Assumption Parish teens after investigators said they stole a limousine from a funeral home while hitchhiking home this week.
Deputies charged 17-year-old Brandon Morris and 18-year-old Trey Hebert with motor vehicle theft after the Dec. 29 incident.
Investigators said Morris and Hebert had been taken by ambulance to a Napoleonville hospital after they were in a fight and needed stitches. Detectives said the two did not have a ride home and started hitchhiking.
Deputies said the two found a white limo parked in front of the Williams and Southall Funeral home with the keys in, and stole it to drive back to Pierre Part. The sheriff's office received a call during that time from a driver complaining the limo had nearly run them off the road and was driving without its lights on. Investigators found the limo parked on James Street in Pierre Part, and arrested the two teens.
Deputies said the case is still under investigation and the teens are in jail with no bond set at this time.
