Synopsis: On 01-28-2012 at approximately 0020 hours, deputies contacted Suspect Maurice Horn during a vehicle check in the 32500 block of Basin Street. The contact originated after deputies observed Hornís vehicle parked at the location and deputies suspected Horn was illegally camped and/or parked.
