    Homeowner has Lawn Stolen

    No, really, someone stole her lawn.

    I at this because I can totally see this happening in Edmonton. When I lived there, the city was going to extend the rapid transit system and identified several houses that were going to be torn down to make way for the tracks. So the night before the demolitions were to happen, all these people headed down there and took doors, shingles, trim, etc. from the soon-to-be-wrecked houses. Except several people misread the addresses and took stuff from houses that weren't going to be demolished - much to the anger of the owners who were at home in the houses at the time IIRC the police had to be called to sort out several disputes.

    I wouldn't be too impressed - it's a lot of work to replace the lawn. I guess it pays to keep in touch with your neighbours, who would then know when something was kooky.

    It reminds me of the Chicago area lady who gave away her neighbor's bushes and plants on Craigslist. She didn't like how crowded the neighbor's lawn was so she put an ad in Craigslist for people to come help themselves.
