FERRIDAY — Police, sheriff’s deputies and Louisiana State Police were on the scene of a crime on Alabama Avenue late Saturday night.

A car on the street in front of a house, near the intersection with Seventh Street, appeared to have busted out windows. Sheets were draped over the car windows, and a hearse arrived just before midnight.
