UPDATE: Drug unit involved in traffic stop near Mosinee

Posted:
MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -

The Marathon County drug unit was involved in a traffic stop near Mosinee.

A sheriff's lieutenant says the stop occurred on I-39 Tuesday afternoon, but he wouldn't provide any more information.

Newsline 9 has learned that Marathon County investigators became involved in the stop after Portage county authorities were involved in a drug operation earlier in the day.

A witness who drove by said he saw at least 10 squad cars on scene. A Newsline 9 Facebook fan posted that he also saw multiple police cars and guns drawn. The sheriff's lieutenant told Newsline 9 he "wouldn't doubt" that guns were drawn, and that it's standard procedure during a drug case, but he wouldn't give any specifics on what happened.

The Mosinee Police Department assisted in the stop.
