THIEVES GO BIG, STEAL TINY HOUSE

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

PITTS­BURG, KAN.» Thieves tar­get­ing a tiny house in Mis­souri de­cided to go big — and steal the whole house.

The Jo­plin Globe re­ports Mis­souri res­i­dent Lisa Stub­ble­field left the struc­ture in a roped-off area in Spring­field last week for the Food Truck Show­down. When she ar­rived for the fes­tiv­i­ties Satur­day morn­ing, it was gone.

Stub­ble­field says she’s sur­prised some­one tar­geted the build­ing, which is 13 feet tall and looks like a small house, com­plete with a cov­ered porch. It has no plumb­ing, and it’s de­signed to be a mo­bile cloth­ing bou­tique.

Stub­ble­field’s Face­book post about the theft was shared more than 5,000 times and even­tu­ally caught the at­ten­tion of a wo­man in Pitts­burg, a town about 90 miles west. Po­lice found the house there the next day.

No ar­rests have been made.
