RITTMAN, OH- We all love the Easter Bunny – as long as you don’t wake up and find him on the couch.
Convicted felon, Eric Branhan 36 yo, was arrested yesterday after a Rittman, Ohio couple woke to that the stranger asleep on the couch.
From what the couple gathers he apparently broke in through their apartment window at random, broke some window treatments and took himself a good ol’ fashioned helping of their Easter candy.
Jaclyn Fortner and Derek Jenkin reportedly found Branhan on their couch around 6 am yesterday morning and called 911 after attempting to rouse him as he just wouldn’t wake up.
“We kept saying like, ‘Who are you? What are you doing?’ Fortner states, but the man didn’t respond.
Jenkin continued to scream at the man while on the phone with a 911 operator.
“Get out of here! Let’s go! Come on!” Mr. Jenkin screamed while on the phone with 911.
Branhan would eventually leave the couple’s apartment complex and picked up by police and is now facing charges of aggravated burglary and possible other charges as he was in possession of prescription drugs when police found him.
According to the state, the sweet-thoothed bandit has been around the block a few times. Records indicate that he has previously did time in prison for forgery, possession of drugs, illegal possession of drugs – and yes burglary.
One thing’s for sure, he probably won’t have to look for a place to sleep anytime soon as it sounds like the local jail likely has a warm bed waiting for just for him.
