Undercover detectives observed him selling cocaine on multiple occasions in Beach Park, Zion and Kenosha, the sheriff’s office said. He was arrested Monday after officers saw a drug sale in Zion. Officers also recovered a blunt-force object which he wasn’t allowed to own due to previous felonies.

Zuniga is being held on $250,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 17.
