Warsaw Police Department narcotic officers made a controlled purchase of heroin in Warsaw last night and took three people into custody.
The drug buy was made at 533 E. Market St. after police received a tip of illegal drug activity there following an overdose. The resulting investigation and subsequent search warrants seized approximately 5 grams of heroin and 100 grams of marijuana from the East Market Street residence as well as a home in Syracuse.
Those arrested last night were:
Shaun Hinson, 34, of Akron, who is charged with Class A felony enhancement for dealing in a Schedule 1 controlled substance and felony possession of marijuana.
Nicholas Richcreek, 27, of Syracuse, who is charged with Class A felony enhancement for dealing in a Schedule 1 controlled substance and possession of a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
Debbie Watson, 36, of Warsaw, who is charged with Class A felony enhancement for dealing in a Schedule 1 controlled substance and possession of a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
Warsaw Police say the charges were enhanced to Class A felonies because the suspects illegal drug activity was occurring across the street from a Warsaw city park that hosts youth football and cheerleading leagues.
Warsaw Police were assisted by the Syracuse Police Department and the Kosciusko County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
Warsaw Police continue to diligently work to reduce the influence of illegal drugs in our community by being aggressive toward the use, manufacture, and possession of illegal drugs. Any drug tips can be called into the Warsaw Police Department at 574-372-9540.
