A Zanesville man appears in front of Judge Kelly Cottrill for his arraignment on charges after a July drug bust.

Timothy Johnson pled not guilty to eight drug-related charges. His bond was continued at $200,000, but he posted bond at an earlier date.

The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office made a scheduled stop on Maple Avenue on July 23rd and took Johnson into custody. A search warrant was also executed at his Muirwood Village apartment where deputies say they found 1,000 grams of cocaine and 100 grams of crack.

If convicted, Johnson could face up to 49 years in prison.
