Four Rhinelander area residents have been arrested on drug charges following the execution of a search warrant in the town of Pine Lake.
According to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office a search warrant was executed at 3961 Trails End Road in Pine Lake Tuesday morning in connection with an investigation involving the use, manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine.
