In Muskingum Common Pleas Court, Monday, 44-year-old Jason Williams plead guilty to several charges including breaking and entering, theft, possession of criminal tools, tampering with a coin machine, aggravated robbery and felonious assault. 

Judge Fleegle issued a pre sentence investigation and continued Williams bond at $150,000. 

Zanesville Police said Williams was arrested on September 5, 2013 when he took a shop vacuum from a garage on Findlay Avenue and used it to try and steal quarters from a coin operated car wash on State Street. 

He was spotted by an officer who pursued him to a home at 1026 Lee Street, where the officer was bitten by a dog released by Williams. 

Williams hid in the attic area of the home before officers went in to get him.
