The Athens County Sheriff's Office in OH responded to a complaint on a 15-year-old runaway, with a history of drug addiction, on Thanksgiving night.

According to parents, the male had ran away sometime during the night. A family member had received a call from the teen, and a trace of the number led police to a home on Nurad Rd.

When deputies arrived they noticed the garage door, and a door leading into the home were open. Deputies entered the home and found the teen passed out in a chair.

Deputies also found a backpack sitting outside the back door, in what appeared to be air soft guns.

The teen was arrested and taken to a local hospital for evaluation, due to his condition.

According to deputies the home appeared to have been burglarized.

The owners of the home were out of town for the holiday, and had been notified by the Athens County Sheriff's Office.
