Horn Arrested On Meth And Other Drug Charges

A Warsaw man was arrested on several drug charges Thursday. Andrew Jeffery Horn, 48, of 2694 E. CR 225S, Apt. B, Warsaw, was arrested at 2:45 p.m. on charges of possession of a syringe, a level 6 felony; possession of a precursor by a methamphetamine offender, a level 6 felony; possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor.

According to a probable cause affidavit from the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office, on Feb. 2 a Warsaw Police Department law enforcement officer received information from multiple sources that Horn had been manufacturing methamphetamine and selling it out of his residence at 1622 E. Clark St., Warsaw.

Officers conducted surveillance on the residence and observed a white SUV occupied by four individuals arrive at the residence. Two of the individuals went inside the residence and then exited in a couple of minutes. The vehicle left and officers conducted a traffic stop. Police spoke with an individual who advised they had delivered a box of pseudoephedrine to Horn for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Officers went to Horn’s residence and spoke with Horn’s son, who led officers back to his father’s bedroom. When officers walked into the bedroom, they observed a box of pseudoephedrine on the table next to the bed with a piece of cotton in a spoon and a syringe. Officers obtained consent to search the residence from Horn. While searching the residence, police found a plant material that officers identified as marijuana.

In the residence, officers located an unopened box of pseudoephedrine, cotton balls, spoons, syringes, corner baggies with white residue and two digital scales.
Officers spoke with Horn who admitted the items found in the room belonged to him and he is a methamphetamine user.

Horn previously was convicted of possession of two or more chemical reagents or precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance on Sept. 22, 2014, in Kosciusko County. He was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail Thursday on a $2,250 bond.
