Man and dog found living in New Middletown storage unit

Posted: Updated:

NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio - A man and his small dog were found living in a storage unit on state Route 170 and Middletown Road.

On Wednesday night, Police Chief Vincent D'Egidio noticed an open door on the unit. Upon further investigation, D'Egidio found the 46-year-old man and dog.

According to a police report, the Petersburg man said his house burned down and he ran out of money for a hotel, leaving him nowhere else to go.

He was previously renting the storage space, and moved in when he allegedly lost his house.

"The man is on a large amount of medications and had he continued living inside the steel storage unit could have proved fatal, hopefully now he can work on getting his affairs in order," Chief D'Egidio said in the report.

Chief D'Egidio contacted Animal Charity, who agreed to take the dog.

The man was transported to the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley.
