Judge issues warrant for local woman

Heroin defendant doesn't show for hearing

A judge issued an arrest warrant Tuesday morning for a former Norwalk woman who didn't appear for her bond revocation hearing.

Elizabeth B. Long, 22, most recently of 8906 Ransom Road, Monroeville, pleaded guilty Feb. 4 to one count of trafficking in heroin in exchange for prosecutors dismissing a second, similar charge. Her conviction was for a July 30 transaction at the McDonald's on the north side of Norwalk.

While it's unclear why the state filed a motion to revoke Long's bond, Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler had said in court his office received a tip that Long reportedly was using heroin.

Moments after entering her guilty plea Feb. 4, Norwalk Police Capt. Mike Conney entered the courtroom at Leffler's request. Long was arrested on an Erie County indictment and charged with complicity to possession of heroin.

Leffler said the police captain attempted to get a urine sample from Long for several hours, but she wasn't able to provide one. As a result, she was released to the Erie County Sheriff's Office.

Huron County Public Defender David Longo said this week he was unaware his client had been released from the Erie County Jail. During the Feb. 4 hearing, the public defender told Leffler if Long were drug-tested that day, she'd likely have a positive screen for marijuana usage.

The defendant's local conviction stems from a controlled buy coordinated by the Huron County Sheriff's Office. Leffler has said Long made arrangements with a confidential informant for the drug deal to take place at the McDonald's on the north side of Norwalk.

"She arrived. She sold two balloons of heroin to the confidential informant," the prosecutor said last week. "There were numerous juveniles in the vicinity of the sale."

Deputies recovered six heroin balloons and $120 at the scene.

In late January, Long's accomplice, Dylan T.K. Mundy, 23, of 5144 U.S. 250, Lot 105, pleaded guilty to complicity to trafficking in heroin. His indictment indicates he used a 1996 Honda Accord during the transaction. Deputies in several cruisers stopped the car on Pleasant Street just off Main Street.

As part Mundy's plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one count of trafficking in heroin in connection with a July 31 incident. Mundy will be sentenced March 12.

Long is scheduled to be sentenced March 26.

Good grab. This is a drug dealer.

Hey, should this chick's lawyer be telling the prosecutor when his client cannot pass a drug test? She never stood a chance with this kind of representation.

Yall Make Me Sick

You judge are the idiot for thinking she would. Come on stop being so dang nice to these drug defendant's. They will tell you what you want to hear to stay out of jail. The judge should have to pay for all the cost they charge all the druggies for letting them out until the hearing.
