Four area residents who have been charged in connection with a home invasion and burglary in Dresden in January appear in court.  Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox says 30-year-old Adam Poulton of Zanesville, 23-year-old Chad Bocook of Avondale, 29-year-old Joseph Roth of Zanesville and 27-year-old Amy Johnson of Dresden all appeared in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court.  They all face multiple charges including aggravated robbery and theft.  All four defendants entered not guilty pleas and had their bonds continued at 250-thousand dollars each.  Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says the four are suspected in the home invasion and burglary at 801 Canal Street.  The victim, who Lutz says knew the defendants, was also assaulted and had a  vehicle stolen.
