A thief made off with an entire house in Klamath Falls, Oregon, this week in a heist that would make Ocean's Eleven blush.

On Tuesday, the homeowner called the Klamath County Sheriff's Office to report that the home was missing, KOBI reports. Moving this log cabin couldn't have been easy, either. It was on a foundation and definitely wasn't a mobile home.

"[The owner] went to visit his part-time home and between the first time he saw it and a couple of months later, it was gone. I mean can you imagine?" Klamath County Sheriff Frank Skrah told The Washington Post.

Police spent two days searching and finally found the cabin on Thursday, at least a mile away from its foundation. Skrah said there was a legal dispute in which three people were claiming ownership of the home, and one of them had sold it to a fourth person.

"We think that somebody busted out the foundation, jacked it up, put a lowboy [trailer] underneath it and lowered it down on the lowboy and took it," Skrah said.

The 1,200-square-foot cabin wasn't occupied at the time it was swiped.

Deputies reportedly have a list of suspects, but they wouldn't release any more details about the homeowner or the investigation. No charges have been filed.
