Warren man charged with animal cruelty, three animals found

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A cat found locked up inside a carrier without food or water last week prompted police to removed three pets from a Warren home.

The cat named Troy was found inside the carrier, partially under a tarp, during the sweltering heat wave Friday. A nearby neighbor tells police she didn't think Troy would make it another day in the heat in the conditions it was living in, so she would sneak food to the cat.

Upon discovering Troy, police also found two dogs, one that appeared malnourished and another chained up inside of the owner's home at 230 Penn NW.

The trio is now staying at the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County.

Pet owner Larry Beckwith is charged with cruelty to animals. He appeared in Warren Municipal Court Monday for his arraignment.

This isn't the first time the shelter has had contact with Beckwith. Shelter officials tell 21 News that Beckwith dropped off another dog earlier this year.

Last week, an animal welfare investigator told police she had been to Beckwith's home and tried to convince him to sign the animals over into the organization's care.
