A judge has issued an arrest warrant for a heroin defendant who didn't show up for her arraignment Monday.

Jamie T. Cooper, 47, of McHenry, Ill., faces one count of possession of heroin in connection with an Oct. 29, 2011 incident.

Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler informed Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway that Cooper had been served with her indictment. Conway asked Huron County Public Defender David Longo if he had any information on where the defendant was.

"I don't think I've ever meet Ms. Cooper. I don't think I'd know her if I met her," Longo said.

In another scheduled arraignment Monday, Timothy Crawford, 31, of Bucyrus, pleaded "not guilty" to two counts each of receiving stolen property. The pair of fifth-degree felonies is in connection with an Aug. 22 incident involving a credit card and some checks.

Crawford, who is in jail on an undisclosed Crawford County charge, is scheduled to go trial Feb. 14.
