A Galion man arrested in Heise Park on drug charges was sentenced to prison time last week in Crawford County Common Pleas Court.

Myles T. Duncan, 32, was sentenced to 30 months in prison for trafficking in drugs, a third-degree felony, and to one year in prison for possession of drugs. The two sentences are to be served concurrently which means Duncan will spend a total of 30 months in prison.

Duncan must also pay a $5,000 fine, had his driver’s license suspended for six months, and will have to forfeit all drug-related property to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office.

A Galion man was sentenced to five years on community control after he pleaded guilty to one count of abduction, a third-degree felony.

Alan R. Swim, 67, 6845 Crawford Morrow County Line Road, was accused of holding his girlfriend, who is in her 20’s, in his vehicle after telling her he would take her home. Swim said he met the woman on Craigslist.

Judge Sean Leuthold added the stipulation that Swim not have any contact with the victim in the case, or anyone who is addicted to drugs, to the requirements of Swim’s probation. He also ordered Swim to pay a $750 fine.

Swim could face up to three years in prison if he fails to successfully complete his community control.
