(AP) HAMPTON, N.Y. - Police in a rural upstate New York town are looking for a 70-foot-long mobile home that was stolen from a diner’s parking lot.
The Washington County sheriff’s office tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls ( http://bit.ly/GB2i3D) that the mobile home had been placed on a trailer that was parked at a diner in the town of Hampton awaiting delivery to neighboring Vermont.
Investigators say the owner had to have emergency surgery and when he came back to Hampton a few weeks later, the trailer with the $50,000, partially furnished mobile home was gone.
Police say someone apparently hitched a truck to the trailer and towed it away late on the afternoon of Sept. 23, when a witness reported seeing it headed toward Vermont.
