Berrien co. playhouse repossessed, not stolen

BERRIEN CO., GA (WALB) - A Berrien County family's playhouse, believed to have been stolen from Alapaha on Friday, January 9th, has been recovered.

The playhouse was not actually stolen, but instead repossessed by the company that built the playhouse, which is based in Montezuma, Georgia because the previous owner had stopped making payments on it.

The Berrien County family who owned the playhouse and was trying to sell it when it was reported stolen Friday was unaware of this and assumed that the playhouse had, in fact, been stolen.

The Berrien County Sheriff's Office said that they were able to determine that the playhouse had been repossessed and was not stolen after a citizen saw WALB's report about the playhouse on Tuesday and contacted them.

According to the sheriff's office, the previous owner, from whom the Berrien County family bought the playhouse, has agreed to give the family their money back.

The company that built the playhouse is keeping the playhouse.
