FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – A narcotics-related search warrant was served at an apartment on Hoagland Ave.
The warrant was served shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday, and officers located two adults and a one-year-old inside the apartment.
Neither adults were related to the child, and refused to provide any information about the one-year-old.
The primary suspect of the investigation, Heather Mascho, was not in the apartment at the time, but arrived shortly after in a vehicle driven by David Burget.
Mascho was taken into custody on four counts of Dealing Cocaine or Narcotic Drug and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.
Burget was also arrested for being a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV).
During the investigation, it was revealed Mascho had custody of the one-year-old child.
The Department of Children’s Services (DCS) removed the child from the apartment.
Detectives also located a loaded handgun, paraphernalia and the synthetic drug spice.
