A man accused of bringing fake urine to a drug screen was arrested last week.

Robert L. Larson, 28, of 336 E. Ohio 61, is charged with tampering with evidence in connection with a June 17 incident.

Larson goes to trial Sept. 26 in Huron County Common Pleas Court. If convicted, he faces nine months to three years in prison.

"You're on intervention in lieu with us, but you have no prior felony convictions," Judge Jim Conway said to the defendant, referring to a trafficking in marijuana charge.

Larson said that was correct. Conway set his bond at $5,000.

"The investigating agency is the Adult Parole Authority," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

In another arraignment last week, the court scheduled a Sept. 24 trial for Norwalk resident Lance Signs, 36, who also has a $5,000 bond. He is charged with trafficking in heroin in connection with a March 19 incident. If convicted, Signs faces six to 12 months behind bars.

A Huron County grand jury issued a secret indictment against Signs on June 28, according to court records.

Both defendants are subject to random drug screens.
