10-By-12-Foot Wooden Deck Stolen


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 3 (UPI) — The owner of a Tennessee home that has been vacant for more than a year said he was shocked to discover a 10-foot-by-12-foot wooden deck had been stolen.

Jadranko Beslic, who moved with his family to Atlanta when he retired from the Army more than a year ago, said a friend asked if she could rent the Clarksville home and when she arrived at the house she discovered the wooden deck was missing from the back yard, The (Clarksville) Leaf-Chronicle reported Tuesday.

“That was on Wednesday, and Saturday was the first day I had off and I could go up there and actually look at it,” Beslic said. “So we did, and sure enough, the deck was gone. There was nothing there.”

Beslic said he filed a police report about the theft.

“It was really nice. I’m just baffled — out of all the things to steal, a deck?” he said.
