Yea, it happens. There are several threads about it already. You might want to try clearing your Maps cache, turning off locator services (might derp other functions), or uninstalling and then re-installing maps.
Personally, I find that the "drain" is usually temporary and happens often around the same time anything "Google" is updated. You can try manually stopping the app in settings and then reboot the phone. Most times, the "drain will subside during the next charge cycle. If you need further information, try searching for the many threads that already exist about this. There is some good info in them. Good luck.
