A Norwalk man recently indicted by an Erie County grand jury in connection with possessing heroin in early January is behind bars.
Justin A. Willard, 27, of 3111 Tomahawk Drive, was arrested early Sunday by the Erie County Sheriff's Office on two Norwalk Municipal Court warrants in connection with possession of heroin, a fifth-degree felony, and disorderly conduct, a minor misdemeanor. The warrants carry no bond.
He was taken to the Huron County Jail to await his court date.
The January incident began as a traffic stop by the Sandusky Police Department.
In early November 2011, Willard was released from the Huron County Jail after serving 112 days for a local trafficking in heroin conviction.
Not quite a year later, he was "discharged" from probation and had his civil rights restored to him, according to Huron County Common Pleas Court records. Willard was ordered to pay about $1,061 in the remaining fines and court costs.
