Three defendants who had been granted intervention instead of being convicted are accused of violating their probation.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway revoked the bonds of Norwalk resident Kenneth L. Ansel II, 19, of 16E Quail Hollow Drive, and Jared S. Shepherd, 23, of 3291 E. Ohio 162, New London, during their respective hearings Wednesday. They will remain in the Huron County Jail until their next hearing.

Ansel has been on probation since March 18 on a charge of receiving stolen property. On Oct. 20, he possessed and used a credit card belonging to a female acquaintance at the Walmart and Mickey Mart in Norwalk, authorities said.

His suspected probation violations include drinking and violating the terms of his house arrest, Kasper said.

"Mr. Ansel stole three cases of Bud Light from Walmart," she added.

Shepherd has been on probation since July 24 on possession of heroin. Kasper said the defendant reportedly tested positive for opiates April 10 and was discharged from the Glenbeigh drug treatment program.

The judge released the third defendant, Robert A. Larson, 28, of 336 E. Ohio 61, from custody Wednesday.

"He said he had a job," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said.

Larson is accused of testing positive for marijuana and benzodiazepine and failing to pay his court costs and fines, Kasper said. He has been on probation since Nov. 19 on trafficking in marijuana.
