According to Lieutenant Gary Schneck, investigators continue to search for another suspect in the incident. Two people remain in custody on drug and weapon charges, however, one person has been released.

The arrests were made, Tuesday shortly after 3:00 PM on Southbound Hwy 51 in Rib Mountain.

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.
