One man is custody in connection with a drug bust this week in Muskingum County. Sheriff Matt Lutz says on Tuesday deputies along with Zanesville Police Officers and the Central Ohio Drug Task force made a bust that netted 15-thousand dollars in marijuana and almost one-thousand dollars in cash as well as an SUV. Sheriff Lutz says an investigation led detectives to a storage unit where the marijuana was being kept. The location of the unit was not revealed. A short time later Lutz says 26-year-old Mason Somers was located during a traffic stop. He is charged with one count each of possession of drugs and trafficking in drugs. Somers is being held in the Muskingum County Jail.
