User meta query can return same user multiple times

Below is my sample arguments array when doing a zipcode search on users. We store zipcodes in two meta fields: their actual address zipcode and (optionally) additional zipcodes (comma separated) the user provides service in.

$zipcode = 'XXXXX'; // The user submitted zipcode for the search
$target_zipcodes = array(); // This array is created by doing a typical zipcode radius search and populated with zipcodes within X mile radius of the searched zipcode

		$args = array(
			'exclude' => array($current_user->ID),
			'meta_query' => array(
				'relation' => 'AND',
                    'relation' => 'OR',
						'key' => 'zipcode',
						'value' => $target_zipcodes,
						'compare' => 'IN'
                    	'key' => 'additional_zipcodes',
						'value' => $zipcode,
                        'compare' => 'LIKE',
					'key' => 'status',
					'value' => 'active',
			'orderby' => 'meta_value',
			'order' => 'ASC'

In an instance where the zipcode searched is in the $target_zipcode array and is in the "additional_zipcodes" user meta value, the user ID is returned twice. So my search results are listing the user two times, I assume because of a bug in the "OR" relation. I feel any query for users should never return the same user twice.
