SPRINGDALE, Wash. - Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen says deputies have located a log cabin that a family said had been stolen off its foundation.

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 at the end of a private road, east of Springdale in rural northeast Washington.

The sheriff's says deputies think that it whoever took it was using it to live in.

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.

Chris Hempel told The Spokesman-Review that her family drove to their cabin Tuesday and found the entire 10-by-20 foot structure missing.
