It's not everyday that y
ou read about a stolen house. Not the entire contents of a house, but the actual house itself.
Such is the plight of a man from Brampton, ON Canada who was shocked to find his 45-foot long double-wide mobile home was stolen from his rural property. While he was away, someone hooked up the double-wide to the back of a truck and drove off with it.

The culprit did not make it too far as the $30,000 mobile home was found a few days later in the next town over, a mere 10 km (6 miles) from the local police station. The thief produced documents proving the home was his, but, big surprise, they were forged. [National Post via Boing Boing; Photo by David McNew/Getty Images]
