LATEST: Bust leads to 5 arrests

by Meg Bonacorsi

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- Detectives make five arrests in a crime ring that included a high-risk traffic stop yesterday afternoon in Rib Mountain.

They're still looking for one more in connection- Keith Kleinschmidt.

An investigation into meth, weapons, theft and burglary led authorities to take one person into custody on Wausau's northeast side.

From there, they made three more drug-related arrests on Highway 51, in a high-risk traffic stop.

Detective Ryan Weber says, "Anytime an officer has information that would lead them to believe that approaching a vehicle would be more dangerous than the usual we would do a high risk traffic stop involving multiple officers, shutting down the highway and systematically taking the people out of the car at gunpoint"

Police found an illegal knife, but no guns.

Once again, they're still looking for Keith Kleinschmidt.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
