Huntingburg Man Faces Additional Charges After An Arrest Warrant Was Delivered To His Home



HUNTINGBURG (Local Sources) – The delivery of an out of county warrant for paraphernalia possession has resulted in additional drug charges against a Huntingburg man.

Tuesday afternoon, the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department went to the home of 21-year old Maurice Zapata to arrest him on a warrant out of Spencer County for possession of paraphernalia.  But when deputies arrived at his home, they say they smelled burnt marijuana.  Deputies say they found Zapata to be in possession of marijuana, hydrocodone pills DCSD says were not prescribed to him and paraphernalia.

After obtaining a search warrant, deputies says they found methamphetamines as well as 36 syringes in a child’s bedroom.  DCSD says a child was not in the home at the time.

DCSD did notify the Dubois County Department of Child Services of what they found.

Zapata is now charged with a Level 4 felony count of Dealing Methamphetamine, a Level 5 felony count of Illegal possession of syringes, and Level 6 felony counts of Possession of Paraphernalia (with a prior conviction on the same charge), Maintaining a Common Nuisance and Possession of Methamphetamine.  Zapata also faces misdemeanor counts of Possession of Marijuana and Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance).
