The Trumbull County Sheriff is waiting for someone to step forward and claim a horse, as well as an Amish buggy containing alcoholic beverages and a stereo sound system.

A deputy reported spotting two Amish men, who were drinking as they rode on the back of the buggy, on Doneley Road in Mesopotamia Township early Sunday, after midnight.

The officer said when he saw a 12 pack of Michelob Ultra on top of the buggy, he attempted to pull it over.



The two men ran into the woods, and the horse kept pulling the buggy until stopping on a nearby path.

In addition to the beer on top of the buggy, the Deputy not only found several open containers of alcohol but the buggy was equipped with what the report describes as a “radio sound system,” with several large speakers.

Using the cruisers loudspeaker, the deputy called into the night, asking the owner of the horse to come and claim it. No one came out of the woods.

The buggy was towed away. The horse is being cared for by someone living in the area until it can be claimed.

Meanwhile, the deputy is working on writing up citations in the case.
