A Zanesville man will spend four years in prison for crimes connected to a July drug bust.

Judge Mark Fleegle sentenced 41-year-old Anthony Williams to prison on possession of drugs and two counts of having a weapon while under disability.

Williams pled guilty to the crimes in September. He also had to pay a fine of $7,500 and must forfeit any weapons and be on post release control for three years once released from prison.

Sheriff Matt Lutz said Williams was one of two men arrested in a July heroin raid at a home at 1265 Dillon Road where deputies recovered heroin, stolen property and two handguns.

A co-defendant in the case, 44-year-old Steven Angler, is facing possession of heroin and permitting drug abuse charges.
