Three Zanesville Residents were indicted on Wednesday in connection with a drug bust at a home on Pierce Street.

49-year-old Charles Workman II, 30-year-old Tekeija Kimbrough, and 46-year-old Leista Lang are all being charged after a search warrant was executed at 114 Pierce Street last Friday by the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office and the Zanesville Police Department. Cocaine, crack, cash, a gun, and drug paraphenalia were all discovered in the home.

Some of the charges include trafficking in marijuana with a school and juvenile specification, engaging in corrupt activity, and illegal manufacturing of drugs, in addition to several others.

The prosecutors office says Workman faces up to 45 years in prison, Kimbrough 32, and Lang up to 39 if convicted on all charges.
