Police: 2 teens stole limo from funeral home
PIERRE PART, La. (AP) — Two teens are accused of stealing a funeral home limousine and driving themselves home in the middle of the night after no one would pick them up hitchhiking.
Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said 18-year-old Trey Hebert and a 17-year-old male were both booked on charges of car theft. The Associated Press does not usually identify juveniles charged with crimes.
Sheriff's spokesman Robert Martin said the teens were trying unsuccessfully to hitchhike home from a hospital where Hebert had received stitches following a fight early Monday.
Martin says they came upon the white limousine, with the keys inside, about 2 miles into their 19-mile walk home.
Police were alerted to the alleged theft after receiving a call about 6 a.m. from a woman who said a limousine had nearly driven her off the road.
