UNWANTED GUESTS REPORTED AT PINE TRAILS LAKE HOME
Let this be a warning to all you North Carolina residents with unoccupied vacation properties in East Texas. There's a reason why they call them "mobile" homes.
Even if you have a permanent dwelling on a foundation, you are not out of the woods (although your house soon may be). A few months ago, this same newspaper reported on a vacant brick home which had been disassembled and hauled off from its site near Lindale. Not suprisingly, the suspects were meth heads.
Can you imagine that conversation? "Hello, Smith County Sheriff's Office? Yes, I'd like to report the theft of my house."
