A Galion woman was arraigned on a theft charge on Monday in Crawford County Common Pleas Court.
Holly M. Dameron, 33, of Galion, is accused of stealing credit cards from someone she was caring for. She is charged with a third-degree felony since the amount of money she stole or charged on the credit cards was more than $7,500.
Dameron’s bond was set at $200,000. She is being held at the Crawford County Justice Center.
Caitlynne M. Lambright, 27, of Crestline, was also arraigned on Monday and her bond was set at $50,000. She is charged with receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony.
Lambright is accused of committing the crime during the same time frame as two other receiving stolen property charges were committed. She was convicted on those two counts in 2015 and served 10 months in prison.
A Plymouth man had his case continued after a change of plea hearing was overthrown by the request of the man to hire a new attorney.
Nickolas Arrendondo, was arrested on Dec. 3 at his residence at 8023 1/2 Ohio 103, Plymouth, after law enforcement searched served a search warrant at the home. He is charged with one count of the illegal assembly or possession of chemicals to manufacture drugs, a third-degree felony, possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, illegal manufacture of drugs, a second-degree felony, and having weapons under disability, a third-degree felony.
If Arrendondo can still plead guilty in a plea agreement with prosecutors, he will sentenced to 10 years in prison. If not, he is facing up to 18 years in prison on the multi-count indictment.
This is not Arrendondo’s first time facing drug charges. At the time of this arrest in December, he was still on community control from this last sentence from April of 2014 which landed him in prison for three years, although he received judicial release after serving less than one year, on similar charges that he is currently facing.
Judge Sean Leuthold ordered a hearing to be held within a week regarding Arrendondo’s request to hire Bucyrus attorney Thomas Nicholson instead of continuing with his court-appointed counsel, Mansfield attorney Rolf Whitney.
