A Norwalk man arrested during a local drug bust has been convicted.

Bo A. Bogard, 33, most recently of 147 N. West St., pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count each of aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine and possession of drugs. He is out on a reinstated bond and is scheduled for sentencing Feb. 27.

Bogard was one of six adult Norwalk residents arrested Oct. 26 when the Norwalk Police Department and Huron County Sheriff’s Office used a search warrant at 5 Unity Lane. Both agencies are members of the METRICH Enforcement Unit, a 10-county drug task force. Authorities also arrested a 16-year-old girl in connection with violating her probation through Huron County Juvenile Court.

“Methamphetamine and items related to drug trafficking were found inside the residence,” police Detective Sgt. Seth Fry said shortly after the drug bust.

Bogard’s indictment includes the stipulation that he was convicted of a “drug abuse offense” Aug. 3 in Norwalk Municipal Court and he may have to forfeit a Samsung cell phone to the state.

In another Huron County Common Pleas Court case, Savannah K. Hamilton, 24, most recently of 122 S. Ohio 61, Willard, had her treatment in lieu of conviction revoked Wednesday. Judge Jim Conway entered a conviction on one count each of aggravated trafficking in drugs and aiding and abetting.

Hamilton, who has been in jail since Dec. 6, will be sentenced Friday.
