Bucyrus man faces 7 drug charges

A Bucyrus man pleaded not guilty to seven charges of trafficking in drugs at his arraignment in Crawford County Common Pleas Court on Monday.

David W. Alspach, 20, 312 E. Charles St., is charged with five counts of trafficking in heroin, one count of trafficking in crack cocaine and one count of trafficking in cocaine.

Alspach was arrested on the felony warrant on Dec. 31 when Bucyrus Police officers located him hiding in a garage in the 100 block of Iron St.

Judge Sean Leuthold set a $500,000 bond for Alspach.

If convicted, Alspach could face seven years in prison and a $27,500 fine.

In addition, a Crestline man is heading to prison for four years after he pleaded guilty this week to drug-related charges.

Leuthold sentenced Kaleb M. Johnson, 20, to three years for possession of drugs, a third degree-felony and one year in prison for trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony.

Leuthold also ordered Johnson to pay a $5,000 fine, forfeit any drug-related property to the Crestline Police Department and suspended his driver’s license for six months.

Terry Hunter, 48, Tiro, also pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and to violating his community control and was sentenced to 39 months in prison.

In a plea agreement with prosecutors, Anthony Lockhart, 30, Shelby, pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and was sentenced to one year in prison. He will be placed on community control upon his release from prison.
