    A 28-year-old man has been charged with stealing a hearse from outside a Buffalo church while a funeral was underway.

    Joe Brown of Buffalo tells WIVB-TV that he was among the pallbearers carrying his father's casket out of St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church on Wednesday morning when the funeral director told them the hearse was gone.

    Brown's family had to wait a half hour for another hearse to arrive.

    Police recovered the hearse about two hours later in nearby North Tonawanda. A Niagara Falls man has been charged in connection with the theft.
