On Monday, nine people faced Judge Sean Leuthold in Crawford County Common Pleas Court for their arraignments on felony charges.

In addition with six other cases remaining sealed until the indictments are served, the nine indictments bring a total count of 74 new cases since January, according to Crawford County Prosecutor Matthew Crall.

A Crestline man accused of making a threat on social media against the Galion City School District was among those arraigned.

Dennis Heefner, 18, Crestline, pleaded not guilty to one count of inducing panic, a fifth-degree felony, and his bond of $150,000 was continued from Crawford County Municipal Court. During that hearing, Heefner reportedly said the threat was a joke. He is represented by attorney Joel Spitzer.

Others arraigned include:

* Michael R. Spencer, 48, Bucyrus, possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, bond set at $75,000.

* Dillon Miller, 19, Galion, trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony, and tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, bond set at $100,000.

* Joshua D. Rowlinson, 25, Bucyrus, tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, bond set at $100,000.

* Andrea K. Lohr, 28, Bucyrus, possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a fourth-degree felony, personal recognizance bond.
