RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) - Traffic on southbound Highway 51 in Rib Mountain is slowed this afternoon as officers make burglary and drug trafficking arrests.
The Marathon County Special Investigations unit originally carried out a search warrant for an apartment on Gilbert Street in Wausau.
The person wasn't there but authorities spotted a vehicle near the apartment. They followed it and made a high-risk traffic stop on Highway 51, believing the suspects could be armed.
At least two arrests were made.
In what authorities believe is a related crime, police in Watersmeet, Michigan recover a vehicle that was stolen in the Town of Texas.
