(ANGOLA) - A man who was arrested near Silver Lake on Christmas night on a methamphetamine related charge after police initially looked for him for not showing up in court entered into a plea agreement in Steuben Superior Court on Monday. 32-year-old David John Zervos offered to plead guilty to a Class B felony of Manufacturing Meth during a pre-trial conference. He was scheduled to go on trial next Thursday. A sentencing hearing has now been scheduled for September 15th.
The Steuben County Sheriffs Department said at the time of the arrest that they and Angola Police went to a residence in the 4300 block of west U.S. 20 to try and find Zervos. He was wanted for allegedly not appearing for an October 17th court hearing in child support and drug cases. Zervos was found inside of a home along with a strong chemical odor. After a search warrant was obtained, several alleged items commonly associated with the making of meth were found inside the residence.
Zervos was taken into custody on the outstanding arrest warrants and was later charged with a Class B felony of manufacturing Methamphetamine.
