An Albany funeral home director says he thinks gang members were responsible for setting one of their hearses on fire early this morning.

A 1999 Cadillac hearse was found ablaze about 4 AM behind the Poteat Funeral Home on Cedar Avenue, just off South Slappey. A passer by spotted the flames.

The hearse was covered in gang signs spray painted on, as well as this other hearse. Manager James Griffin said Police Gang Unit Investigators thought it could be part of a gang initiation.

Poteat Funeral Home Manager James Griffin Jr. said “This is the price you pay being in business this day and time. When people are breaking into churches, like they have done in the past few weeks. The business people are not exempt from it either.”

Police took the burned hearse for an arson investigation. Griffin could not estimate the amount of damage done.
