Bail bond company looking for client who fled

By J Swygart -

LIMA — The bail bond company which posted a $5,000 appearance for a Lima woman on charges of trafficking in drugs was granted 30 more days to locate its client before being required to forfeit that bond.

Abbigayle Weaver, 27, of Lima, has not been seen for more than five months after failing to appear for a required urinalysis test in August. Weaver had been released on bond after pleading not guilty to two counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, felonies of the second degree. She also failed to appear at an Oct. 23 court hearing.

“She’s missing,” the woman’s court-appointed attorney, Jerry Pitts, said Wednesday.

Derek Mills, a representative of Hitchman Bonds Insured, told Judge Terri Kohlrieser during a bond forfeiture hearing that “we have a good idea” where Weaver is hanging out while eluding police.

Kohlrieser gave the firm until March 10 to find the missing woman.

Weaver was the back seat passenger in a vehicle that was searched, with consent, by Lima police following a traffic stop on Aug. 14, 2019. She was taken into custody at that time on outstanding warrants and the suspicion of possession of methamphetamines. Police found a bag containing more than 86 grams of meth in the vehicle.

Weaver and William Ford, the driver of the vehicle, were determined to have traveled to Dayton to purchase the drugs.
