Three men were arrested with drug possession and charges are pending against a fourth man following a search of a Paynesville home on Friday afternoon.

The Paynesville Police Depart-ment and the Stearns County Drug Task Force searched a home on Lake Avenue on Friday and found marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Following the search, which was done with a search warrant, a Cold Spring man, a Paynesville man, and a Minneapolis man were arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

All the information from the arrests has been turned over to the Stearns County Attorneys Office for review and possible charges.

The Stearns County Drug Task Force is investigating the occupant of the residence for narcotics possession. Other arrests could follow, said Paynesville Police Chief Tony Schmitt.

The Paynesville Press does not print names until formal charges are filed.
