Stolen tiny home found in Volusia County: Deputies

A tiny home reported missing out of Lake County was recovered in Volusia County Friday, deputies said.

According to the Lake County Sheriff's Office, the unfinished tiny home was removed from a property in Leesburg without the owner's knowledge or permission on July 21.

The tiny homeowner said he purchased a double-axle trailer from someone on Facebook Marketplace and parked it at his house for a couple of months. He then moved the trailer to another location on Emerald Island Road where he paid $800 a month to store from an individual, a case report shows.

The individual later texted the tiny homeowner saying he had 48 hours to remove the home from the property or "he was going to get it moved." He said when he went back to the residence the weekend after receiving the text, it was gone.
