A man whom authorities called a "major supplier of heroin" has been convicted of a felony charge.

Darran L.W. Townsend, 26, of 117-B N. West St., pleaded guilty Friday in Huron County Common Pleas Court to possession of heroin.

In return, the state dismissed two fifth-degree charges of selling heroin, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

Townsend was charged with possession of heroin, possession of crack cocaine and possessing weapons under disability following a drug bust by several area agencies.

"This guy was a major supplier of heroin," Norwalk Police Department Detective Sgt. Seth Fry said.

Townsend will be sentenced Nov. 6.

Must be more than one "major supplier of heroin" in Huron county, because it is still plentiful.

.Putting these people behind bars is what will clean up our county..I'm sure there are a lot of other people who will agree with me..I would much rather see our tax dollars going for our police dept to focus on this then two 17 yr olds fighting during a school soccer game..


looks like his parents were major suppliers of chromosomes.


They might've been, but I think he got less than he's supposed to have.


I wonder what his sentence will be . . . three slaps on the wrist?


Slap on wrist...if he does his time and/or treatment does his felony charges get erased ?


Haha what a loser! Glad he is finally locked up
