A Norwegian family’s swimming pool wasn’t just bolted down, it was in the ground — but that didn’t keep it from being stolen.

When the family visited their mountain cabin over the weekend, they discovered a big hole in place of the swimming pool that had been installed 20 years ago. The pool — 16 feet in diameter — and all of its equipment had been uprooted and stolen.

The theft happened between early November, when the family closed up the cabin for the winter, and this weekend.

The woman who owns the cabin with her husband says no one, not even the police, believed them at first.
