PIERRE PART — Two teens accused of stealing a funeral home limousine for a ride home from a Napoleonville hospital were arrested Monday by Assumption Parish sheriff’s deputies.
Trey M. Hebert, 18, and Brandon Morris, 17, both of 118 David St., Pierre Part, had been taken to the Our Lady of the Lake Assumption Community Hospital by ambulance because one of them was in a fight and needed stitches, said Deputy Robert Martin, sheriff’s spokesman.
But when Hebert and Morris were released early Monday, they had no ride home, deputies said in a news release issued on Tuesday.
They tried to hitchhike but ran across the Williams and Southall Funeral Home limousine on La. 1 just north of Napoleonville with the keys inside, deputies said.
The teens drove the limo home to Pierre Part and parked it at the end of James Street where deputies found it about 8 a.m. Monday, deputies said.
A caller had earlier reported about 6 a.m. Monday that a white limousine had cut the driver off, nearly running the driver off the road, deputies said.
Hebert and Morris each were booked Monday in the Assumption Parish Detention Center in Napoleonville with single counts of theft of a motor vehicle, deputies said. Bail had not been set for either teen as of mid-morning Monday, deputies said.
