A Zanesville man facing drug charges pleads guilty in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court.  The Prosecutor’s office says that 29-year-old Justin Minor entered guilty pleas to two counts of trafficking in drugs and one count of possession of drugs.  Two other charges will be dropped at sentencing.  Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says Minor was arrested in January from a home at 770 Findlay Avenue.  The Sheriff says his department had received numerous calls about illegal drug activity at that residence.  Judge Kelly Cottrill ordered a pre-sentence investigation in the case and Minor’s bond was continued as set.
