A Monroeville man was convicted Thursday of selling marijuana to a confidential informant.

Blake A. Kapferer, 23, of 4792 Peru Center Road, pleaded guilty to trafficking in marijuana. He was convicted on a bill of information, meaning he waived his right to have the case presented to a grand jury for a possible indictment.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed two counts of trafficking in heroin in connection with incidents on Aug. 12 and 14.

The Norwalk Police Department had received information that Kapferer was selling marijuana. Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said detectives set up a controlled drug buy April 8 and Kapferer sold the informant 3.18 grams of marijuana for $50 at a Norwalk residence.

Shortly after the transaction, police entered the apartment and arrested Kapferer. During his interview at the station, the defendant "acknowledged he sold the marijuana" and his cell phone included evidence of setting up the drug deal, Kasper said.

Kapferer will be sentenced June 4.

He is serving a 50-day Norwalk Municipal Court sentence for a probation violation at the Huron County Jail. Kapferer said his original conviction was a concealed weapon violation when he had a folding knife in his pocket during an early morning incident when an officer encountered him while he was walking.

Why would you trade a two counts of trafficking in heroin for a 50 dollar pot sale? I think they're doing this backwards.
