Two nabbed here on drug counts in downtown traffic stop
space
An Antigo woman is among two people in custody today awaiting prosecution on allegations they were in possession of both methamphetamine and crack cocaine.

The pair was arrested Tuesday afternoon when a Langlade County sheriff’s deputy executed a traffic stop in Antigo’s downtown. The drugs, along with a pipe and an unused syringe, were seized as evidence and the case is being referred to the district attorney’s office for charges. The counts are expected to include claims that the substance may have been intended for sale.

The 12:43 p.m. stop attracted plenty of attention to the corner of Fifth Avenue and Clermont Street as deputies took the pair, the 33-year-old Antigo woman and a 32-year-old male from Plover, into custody.

The man was the driver, although he did not have a valid license, and according to reports, a background check revealed he was wanted on an unspecified warrant issued by the Mosinee Police Department, leading to his arrest.

Several plastic bags were removed from his hand while he was being handcuffed. Most were empty but two of them contained suspected methamphetamine, each measuring an estimated 1.3 grams.

Balls of cocaine wrapped in cellophane, more meth, a pipe and a syringe were found during a subsequent search of the car.

Officials said the vehicle was owned by the female and she allegedly admitted to using drugs. According to reports, she told investigators that she and the man had been long-time friends. They had met up in Wausau the night prior and were in Antigo because she had a meeting with her probation agent.
