Two others arrested in New Port Richey standoff


Raid nets three for price of one warrant

The SWAT team that broke down the door to 6017 Arthur Ave. in New Port Richey on Wednesday afternoon found the fugitive they were looking for — and two other people with stashes of cocaine, marijuana, morphine, bongs and pipes, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies knocked on the door Wednesday morning looking for Stephan D. Fullman, 22, a fugitive wanted on a warrant for failing to appear in court on several drug charges and harassment. When those inside the home refused to come out, authorities got a search warrant and broke down the front door. Students could not be dismissed from three nearby schools until the incident was resolved.

Fullman, of 4300 Mesa Drive in New Port Richey, is being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $80,526 bail.

The two other residents arrested from that home are:

• Jesslyn D. Sarnowski, 31, who is charged with possession of cocaine, controlled substances, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She is being held in lieu of $7,300 bail.

• Casey L. Zarvas, 24, who is charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. She remains in custody in lieu of $5,150 bail.


Tampa man accused of '09 rape is arrested

A 27-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on charges he raped a 13-year-old girl last July.

Jonathan Horne of Tampa is charged with lewd and lascivious acts. It is unclear why the arrest is coming months after the alleged incident.

Due to the nature of the allegations, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office would not say how the victim knew Horne.

Horne remained Thursday at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
