I’ve Heard of Breaking Into Cabins But Stealing The Whole Cabin?
A Michigan man has been charged in connection with a cabin that was stolen in northern Michigan.
Have You Seen This Cabin?
Apparently, someone has seen the missing cabin and that is why a man has been charged with its disappearance.
Having a cabin up north is definitely a Michigan thing. I've known several people over the years who had cabins up north and have invited me to come up. In almost every instance there was talk of a cabin break-in at one time or another in the area. So, unfortunately, cabins being broken into is also a Michigan thing. What I had never heard of until about a year ago was someone stealing a whole cabin.
The Entire Cabin Was Stolen In Northern Michigan
The cabin in the picture above is a prefabbed cabin that was made in a factory and dropped off with a large truck. Needless to say, it doesn't have a basement and is either sitting directly on the ground, concrete slab, or on some blocks. Just a simple cabin to visit and enjoy.
The cabin was allegedly stolen in late 2021. The person who owned the cabin came to visit in February of 2022 and reported the cabin stolen. The Michigan State Police got involved and asked for the public's help locating the missing cabin.
The MSP set up a tipline and after multiple tips came in the police were able to locate the cabin.
Michigan Man Charged In Cabin Theft
According to FOX 2 Detroit, the 43-year-old man's name is Jeremy Knoll of Kalkaska. Knoll has been charged with receiving and concealing stolen property.
Stealing a cabin is not a one-man job and from the list of charges above there is a good chance others will also be arrested and charged for the actual theft. It looks like Knoll accepted the property and tried to hide it by using pieces of sheet metal but someone had to bring it to him. Stay tuned.
