Entire Front Porch Stolen From House In Alabama
This brings a new meaning to the term "Porch Pirate”. Hear me out. How would you feel coming home and finding your whole porch gone? Like poof…gone!
Well in Marion County Florida a 51-year-old man was arrested for attempting to steal a porch!
Yes a porch, not the packages on the porch, the porch itself.
I am still laughing at this so please bear with me…
Deputies responded to a burglary in progress and found Keith Hill, 51, not only in the home but also dismantling the porch from the house.
Of course, now I wonder has this ever happened in Alabama? I mean this is one for the record books.
Well, Alabama has not disappointed me and said hold my beer. In 2013, in Opelika, a woman reported her porch was stolen. Yes, an 8-foot by 10-foot wooden porch was taken from her home.
So is this a common phenomenon? Have I led such a sheltered life that I never realized porches were being stolen? I have heard of packages vanishing but never the entire porch.
The answer is yes this really does happen. In Detroit, a resident stepped out of his home and fell 5 feet because his entire brick stoop and stairs vanished overnight. I was surprised by the number of incidents I actually found online.
