Silver Springs man arrested for drug theft last December

WARSAW – A 19-year-old Silver Springs man was charged Monday with the theft last Dec. 8 of a relative’s morphine pills from their home on south Main Street in Silver Springs, the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday.

Zuri D. Degroot was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance because alleged drug paraphernalia seized as evidence earlier from his room was confirmed by the Monroe County Crime Laboratory as containing Hydrocodone. He was served with an appearance ticket for a Silver Springs Village Court proceeding in several weeks.
