Thieves in St. Louis may have reached a milestone -- stealing an entire house, albeit a tiny one, Saturday in St. Louis.
“It’s just so surreal, because you hear about trailers and cars being stolen all the time," Meghan Panu, who spent two years and nearly $20,000 building the tiny home, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
She said the house was designed to be as efficient and sustainable as possible and was also built with some recycled materials. Panu planned to move into it over the summer.
Panu is hoping nearby businesses have surveillance video that can help identify the suspects or that someone sees the domicile on-the-move.
"I’m just hoping that maybe (the) state patrol will flag it and pull it over,” Panu told the Post-Dispatch. “But in the meantime, it’s just been a waiting game.”
