The art of stealing has a propensity to attract very creative yet daring personalities. There’s a couple in Madisonville, Texas that knows no better.
Identified as Jo and Lonnie Harrison, the couple told Eyewitness News that someone stole their entire home off their property in Madisonville, Texas.
The two had purchased the 10-acre property with a prefab home on site last year. The stolen house was a one-bedroom, one-bathroom home with a green roof and wood siding. The house was used by the couple as a getaway from the busy city.

The last time they drove to the property was in early November. Lonnie Harrison returned Friday only to discover the end structure gone.
"Nothing. Nothing that I wanted to see. I didn't see the house," said Harrison. "All I saw were blocks and pipes sticking out. The whole house gone. Everything except the blocks."
He called his wife, Jo, who couldn't believe the news. They called the Madison County Sheriff's Department to report the disappearance. "I said you know this is really going to sound strange but I need to report a stolen house. They were like a house? I said yes. We have 10 acres and had a little cabin and the cabin is gone," said Jo Harrison. "Give us a call. Call the Madisonville Sheriff's Department and let them know what you see. We really would like to have our house back."
The family is asking anyone with information to call the sheriff's department at 936-348-2755 for assistance in the investigation.
It cannot have been moved far, get out the drones and start looking around. It would wide load hauling and at a slow pace. If it went far some LEO would have stopped them to check the permits, or look for permits that were pulled in that time.
