Men Swipe House, Brick by Brick

AP - When Smith County Constable Dennis Taylor got a call reporting a stolen house, his first question was, "Is it a trailer house, ma'am?" "No, it's a brick house," the real estate company representative replied. Board by board, shingle by shingle, for nearly three months, thieves dismantled a three-bedroom brick house in this East Texas town and carted it away until only a pile of rubble was left. Authorities allege Brandon Ray Parmer, 29, and Darrell Patrick Maxfield, 44, both of Tyler, took the house apart and sold it for drugs, in plain view of everyone cruising by along Lindale's main street. . . "It's the strangest case I've ever worked in my life," Taylor said. "Everybody drove by and waved at them."
