A Tiny House is Stolen (and Recovered)

Missing House

Stealing an entire house is a new level of larceny. The tiny house movement has now made that possible, as a St. Louis woman recently learned.

Thieves took the next step from taking packages, bikes, and cars when they hitched a trailer-based tiny house to their truck and sped off. The structure was not yet complete, so fortunately nobody was inside. The home was recovered after a social media-fueled search and returned to its owner.

The Washington Post has a long write-up with all the twists and turns in this unusual tale.

As always, we definitely recommend locking up a house when nobody is home – especially if it has wheels.
