Sheriff’s BURN Taskforce Makes Multiple Arrests

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones reports the results of multiple drug investigations in Hamilton and Middletown. The BURN taskforce executed two search warrants along with a traffic stop, on Friday, 02-04-2011.

The first search warrant was executed at 325 Charles Street, in Hamilton. Located in the residence was on bail of marijuana, weighing 15 pounds. Armondo Zuniga-Osuna, age 44, was arrested for Possession of Drugs, a felony 3. During an interview, Zuniga-Osuna stated he was a migrant worker and had just arrived, in Hamilton, from Arizona. After being booked into the Butler County Correctional Complex, Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a “Holder” on Zuniga-Osuna. The investigation is ongoing and more arrests may be forthcoming.

After the first search warrant was conducted, BURN agents wrapped up a multi-week investigation into Deundre Howard, age 23, of Dayton. Howard was stopped by marked Butler County Sheriff’s units on SR 129, after he dropped off over 350 capsules of heroin and a ¼ ounce of heroin, at a location in Hamilton. Also in the vehicle was Shabree Andrews, age 23, of Dayton, and a juvenile sibling of Howard. Andrews was carrying over $1500.00 in cash in her pockets. Howard and Andrews were both charged with Trafficking in Drugs, Felony 1. The juvenile faces no charges at this time. Howard is currently awaiting sentencing on another Trafficking in Drugs charge, through Butler County Commons Pleas Court.

The second search warrant was executed just before midnight, at 1007 14th Street, in Middletown. Agents located approximately 1 ¼ pounds of marijuana, a scale with a baggie of marijuana on it, and more than $900.00. Some of the marijuana was located outside of a rear window that was found ajar. The target of the investigation, Van Davis, faces Trafficking in Drugs, Felony 3, and Tampering with Evidence, Felony 3.

The BURN Taskforce credits citizens tips that led to the investigations. The BURN Taskforce receives tips through a tip line at 513-887-3029 and the Sheriff’s website at www.butlersheriff.org Complainants can leave their tips anonymously or with their information for follow up calls by BURN agents.
