Hilarity in Houma

Houma police say two alleged car burglars -- one in a wheelchair -- were arrested after they returned to their victim's home to apologize. The Courier reports that 50-year-old William Poindexter and 48-year-old Ernest Mart, both of Houma, were booked with simple burglary and held in lieu of $50,000 bond. A third man is wanted.

Police say they allegedly were taking a car radio from an SUV about 1 a.m. Monday when the owner saw them. They fled -- one pushing another in a wheelchair.

Police say Poindexter allegedly took a bottle of cologne and two cellphone chargers.

They say Poindexter and Mart, who uses a wheelchair, returned later Monday to the woman's house to apologize. Police say her father chased them, and they were later caught by police.
