Washington deputies find cabin that family reported stolen
SPRINGDALE, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities say a log cabin that a family reported stolen off its foundation has been found in rural northeast Washington.
Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen says deputies following a tip found the cabin Thursday morning about 10 miles from its original location. He says the structure had been placed on stilts and was sitting at the end of a private road east of Springdale.
Chris Hempel tells The Spokesman-Review newspaper in Spokane that her family drove to their cabin Tuesday and found the entire 10-by-20-foot structure missing.
Investigators think that whoever took the cabin was living in it.
Allen says deputies are getting a search warrant to get onto the property and inside the cabin. He says he has identified suspects but declined to name them.
