A break-in defendant failed to show up for her sentencing hearing Thursday.

As a result, Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway issued an arrest warrant for Ava S. Sword, 33, of Rochester. In early November, she pleaded guilty to one count of breaking and entering for a May 15 incident when she stole a pipe from her husband's cousin.

"We suspect that it may be drug-related, but we could not pin that down," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said in November.

Conway ordered Sword, who earlier was released from jail on her own recognizance, be held without bond once she's arrested.



You dont say.


stole what from his cousin? a pipe?? you suspect it's drug related?..lmao..i agree with dont say!?!


I bet she said she was super sorry and she pinky swore she would come back on her own. Idiots.


...and unless I'm quite mistaken, she probably copped that pipe for a relaxing few moments with a superb toasted black cavendish, perhaps a pressed burley/sweet virginia flavored blend, maybe an after dinner bowl of some other exotic imported from, say, Denmark... now on to the brandy or single malt scotch... the leather chairs and fireplace; good conversation...


She broke her promise to return? I'm shocked . . . NOT!

Another fine job by the courts here in Norwalk. She stole a pipe but they can't confirm it was drug related....then they release her because we all know how honest drug addicts are. Another year same ole Conway.....


It's not clear if the pipe was a "tommaco" pipe.
