NEWTON FALLS, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio couple who reported a break-in say the burglar apparently was in no hurry because he or she took time to feed their dog bologna, make a pot of coffee and smoke some cigarettes.

WKBN-TV in Youngstown says the couple from Newton Falls reported that their home was ransacked after they were picked up by police on an outstanding warrant earlier this week. Prescription drugs were stolen, along with a video game console, a DVD player and dozens of movies.

WFMJ-TV reports police determined that someone pried open a side door and that, as the police report put it, the intruder “was comfortable while they were there.”

One of the residents suggested a possible suspect. Newton Falls police were investigating.
