Marathon Co. Sheriff's Dept. quiet on traffic stop details


We're still waiting to learn more about a traffic stop this week that involved a drug unit near Mosinee. But so far, Marathon County authorities have not released any information.

The traffic stop happened Tuesday afternoon just off I-39 at exit 179. Several of our viewers called in to us reporting several squad cars on scene and some officers with their guns drawn. Newsline 9 has learned the stop was tied to a drug operation set up north of Stevens Point.

Newsline 9 has made repeated phone calls to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department to find out what happened. The department tells us it's handling the investigation, but officials will not release details about whether any arrests have been made or if any drugs were found.

We'll keep asking questions and keep you updated.
