Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says a month-long drug investigation has resulted in the arrest of one area man.

Lutz says 21-year-old Marcus Moore of 808 Dryden Road, along with three other individuals were taken into custody in the parking lot at Zane State College and questioned at the Sheriff’s Office on Monday.

Moore was charged with trafficking in cocaine and he could face 8 years in prison.

The other three individuals were released. Lutz says 366 grams of cocaine was seized and its street value is just over $73,000.

Anyone with information in connection with this case or any illegal activity is asked to call the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office at 740 452-3637.
