A Zanesville man was arraigned on Wednesday in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court for charges relating to a car fire.

33-year-old Otis Moses II plead not guilty to two counts of arson and one felony count of receiving stolen property.

The Zanesville Police Department says that Moses allegedly set a blue Mercedes Benz on fire that was taken from a home on Ceramic Avenue. Authorities say the home was broken into on January 14th by four suspects and one of them was armed with a hand gun. Four adults and one juvenile were home during the incident. A male victim did suffer a gun shot wound to the left leg and was taken to the hospital for treatment. An undisclosed amount of money was also stolen from the scene.

Judge Kelly Cottrill continued Moses’ bond at $50,000.
