An unnamed man pulled off off a dastardly scheme worthy of every cartoon villain in the book, Michigan's 7 Action News reports.
Finding out that his house was due to be demolished for unreported reasons, the unnamed man pulled the ol' "address switcheroo."
The man who owned the house that was slated for demolition is accused of changing the address numbers with the house next door.
Mike--the man who owns the house that wasn't supposed to be torn down-- tells 7 Action News he was planning on renting it out on October 1 and he's wondering if the city of Pontiac owes him a new house.
But some of the neighbors are actually happy that the wrong house got torn down:
"When I heard they tore down the house on accident I wanted to give them a twelve pack of beer," said neighbor Fred Sargent. "I was that happy. If anybody was going to rent that out, it had to be a crackhead," Sargent said.
Unfortunately for the number meddler, his plan didn't last long. Crews returned the next day with a wrecking ball to tear down the right house.
