NY police: 70-ft.-long mobile home stolen from lot

HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — 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.
