Drugs were found at a home in Zion Township during a bust on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 3:30 p.m., according to law enforcement officials.

Investigators from county, state and federal agencies executed a search at the rural Paynesville home, where they suspected marijuana and the manufacture of methamphetamines.

This was the third drug arrest in the Paynesville area within the last two weeks and the fourth in a three month period.

Samples of the drugs found were sent to a testing lab. It will take about a month before results are back.

The investigation is continuing and more information is expected to be released next week.

The Press publishes names of people only after they are charged.
