A suspected burglar accused of stealing some TVs, jewelry and other items was arraigned Friday.

Mark A. Noller Jr., 37, entered "not guilty" pleas to one count each of burglary and receiving stolen property in connection with a Dec. 2 incident in the Norwalk area. Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway set the defendant's bond at $20,000 and his trial date for March 26.

Noller and another male suspect "hit a couple places in Norwalk," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said. He said the pair stole some TVs, an iPad, watches and some jewelry from one victim.

The Norwalk Police Department arrested Noller on the indictment at 2:08 p.m. Thursday and released him to the Huron County Sheriff's Office. A Huron County grand jury secretly indicted Noller on Jan. 11.

Noller's suspected accomplice, Cory B. Smith, 24, of 40B Corwin St., was arrested in early December with several other people when Norwalk police used a search warrant at 14 E. Harkness St., which an investigator has called "a heroin house."

Smith is charged with three counts each of burglary and theft in connection with incidents on Nov. 22 and 26 plus Dec. 2 and 7. He also was indicted on one count each of theft of a firearm and safecracking, both stemming from a Nov. 27 offense.

If convicted, Smith faces as much as 28 years in prison and a $55,500 fine. His trial is scheduled for Feb. 26.

Noller, if convicted, faces up to two years in prison.

If either of them had not committed a crime, you'd have no reason to yell.

NO ONE IS YELLING SWEETHEART. IM TIRED OF THIS STUPID JUSTICE SYSTEM... I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW SOMEONE (NOLLER) WHO IS A KNOWN HEROIN ADDICT, DEALER, ETC., IS ONLY LOOKING AT ONLY UP TO 2 YEARS AND CORY IS LOOKING AT 28 AND CORY WAS ONLY THE ACCOMPLICE? HOW DOES THAT ADD UP TO BE RIGHT, AT ALL? JUST SAYIN.. :)

Don't know either of them, but does Cory have a longer record? That has a lot to do with things. The more stupid sh*t you do, the longer the sentences get. As it should be. If you haven't learned the other (how many times) they should lock your a** up. And if your not yelling take your cap lock off sweetheart.

No markie has a very long history of prison and jail. He is worthless he will steal anything he can get his hands on. Hes the one who was in the paper as the atm thief. Hes never going to change. The reason cory is getting longer is because hes not best friends with fry like mark is. Hes stole purses walletts atm cards debit cards n its all been reported n the cops know it was him he gets nothibg for it.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM SAYING. ANYONE WHO KNOWS EITHER OF THEM KNOWS WHO HAS THE EXTENSIVE RECORD. IT'S A BIT RIDICULOUS IF YOU ASK ME...

I am in no way shape or form trying to say that markie is less culpable for any of his actions. He has gone downhill for years 15 or so for what Ive known of him. With that said Id like to help all you do gooders out with some fundamental reading skills, we learn early to read and absorb all of what we read, the article CLEARLY states that Cory Smith was charged with 3 counts EACH of Burglary AND theft, ALSO charged with 1 count EACH of theft of a firearm AND safecracking. Now here is the part that you all clearly didnt READ and/or comprehend Mark Noller was ONLY charged with 1 count of Burglary and 1 Charge of recieving stolen property thus the maximum penalty is two years.. Compare what cory was charged with now and maybe you can figure out the difference. I am in no way trying to stick up for markie, I am as dissapointed in him as the next person and he has long lost my friendship. I simply wanted to clarify what the reading public or atleast to the people who sit on their faces and post the way they misconcieve everything they read
