A Zanesville man is arraigned in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court  Wednesday  on multiple felony drug charges.

62-year-old Gary Workman entered not guilty pleas to several charges including trafficking in crack cocaine, permitting drug abuse and possession of crack cocaine.

The charges stem from a drug bust in November of 2010.

Zanesville Police along with the Special Response Team raided a home on Bates Street where they confiscated handguns, crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

Judge Mark Fleegle continued Workman’s bond at $100,000.

A co-defendant in the case, 30-year-old Charles Workman III plead not guilty to a charge of having a weapon under disability .

Workman III is already serving a prison sentence in a separate drug case.
