Store personnel initially alerted police to the woman’s precense, advising she had been loitering in the store for well over an hour. There were reports she had been talking to herself and moving items around. Asked to leave, she then sat in a chair outside the business, with her head down, and concern grew as to her welfare.

Police said the woman appeared to be under the influence of some sort of substance and a background check revealed she was wanted on three warrants for failing to pay fines. She was arrested and taken to Aspirus Langlade Hospital to be medically cleared before taken to jail.

Authorities said a small amount of marijuana and a tinfoil bindle were in her purse. That bindle held a white powder which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Another arrest occurred as a result of a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon. A 43-year
