Convicted Norwalk drug dealer accused of furnishing alcohol to minors

A Norwalk resident convicted of a drug-related offense admitted there is probable cause he violated his probation.

Christopher T. Cook, 24, of 152 1/2 Whittlesey Ave., was in Huron County Common Pleas Court on Monday.

Cook pleaded guilty to trafficking in oxycodone in early June. The conviction is for an Oct. 24, 2011 offense. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed two similar charges stemming from Oct. 25 and Dec. 6, 2011 incidents.

Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper told the judge Monday the state dismissed a probation violation complaint in September, but Cook "tested positive for a number of drugs" the next month.

At the prosecutor's request, Conway ordered Cook be held without bond until his March 3 hearing. While in jail, he will be screened for possible acceptance in a CBCF.

During his pre-sentence interview prior to being sentenced in late August, Cook tested positive for undisclosed drugs.

On July 9, the Norwalk Police Department arrested Cook and four other suspects in connection with an underage drinking party. The other people were between the ages of 18 and 20.

Cook was charged with furnishing alcohol to minors, but it's unclear how or if the case was resolved.

He remains in custody at the Huron County Jail.
