An Alliance man who police say broke into a Smith Township home, made coffee and ate brownies, then took a tractor to get home, was arrested Monday on felony charges.

Ren G. Teague, 65, of 941 Knox School Road, Alliance, was arrested at 8:02 p.m. Monday on charges of grand theft vehicle, a fourth-degree felony; and burglary-forced, a second-degree felony, by Smith Township Police with help from Columbiana County Sheriff’s deputies.

According to the police report, two residents in the 12000 block of North Johnson Road in Smith Township reported a potential theft and burglary occurred between 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday. The homeowner said when he got home, he noticed a cup of coffee and a plate of half eaten brownies on his kitchen table that neither he nor his wife had left there. Upon further searching of his property, the resident noticed his Kubota tractor was missing. He stated “there was a good chance that his cousin Ren Teague could be a potential suspect due to the ongoing issues they have had over the years.”

The report said the victim’s son-in-law reported seeing the Kubota sitting in Ren Teague’s yard.

Officers went to the Knox School Road address, and, when asked about the tractor and break-in, Teague said it was his cousin’s tractor and he had made coffee and ate the brownies inside the house. He told officers a female had dropped him off at his cousin’s residence, and that because he did not have a ride home, he took the Kubota to drive home.

Teague was transported to Smith Township Police Department for booking, then taken to the Mahoning County Jail, where he is being held until his arraignment at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
