A  Zanesville father and son plead guilty to drug charges.

51-year-old Alfred Stires and 25-year-old Michael Stires both appeared in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court  Wednesday where they each entered guilty pleas to a felony charge of cultivation of marijuana.

Assistant Prosecutor Bob Smith says in August of last year deputies from the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office discovered marijuana plants growing outside their home on Pinkerton Road.

Judge Fleegle ordered a pre-sentence investigation.

Both are being held in the Muskingum County Jail.
