The Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the theft of an outbuilding near the Floyd County Line that was reported earlier this week.

According to a report released yesterday by the sheriff’s office, Mrs. Phyllis Dodson told a responding deputy that her house at 277 County Line Road had burned in December.  She told the deputy that several items had been left at the scene, including a brown and green out building that “was big enough for someone to live in.”

Mrs. Dodson said that she had given the building to her preacher, and when he came to look at the building this past Sunday, it was gone. Mrs. Dodson said that other items missing included several trailers full of scrap metal.

The responding deputy found tracks that looked as if they were made by a tractor that was used to remove the outbuilding from the property.

Mrs. Dodson was able to provide a receipt from where she purchased the building to investigators.  The incident is still under investigation by the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office.
