Monday evening proved to be troublesome for a 28 year old area female, who will now be facing multiple drug charges after a search warrant was executed at an Elm Street residence.

According to police, a call at 6:40 p.m. reported the woman along with as many as four minor children were at the location with drug activity ongoing.

After the warrant was secured, law enforcement along with the city of Antigo’s K-9 unit visited the residence where the female was arrested for possession of THC, possession of meth paraphanalia and possession of drug paraphanalia. Officers later located what was referred to as a shake and bake lab to make meth in the garage.

In an unrelated case, a Hill Road resident reported a possible burglary to Langlade County authorities at his home late Monday morning. A bottle jack, commonly used for lifting houses and a Stihl chainsaw were reported missing from his shed.

A female also phoned police Monday evening to request her intoxicated husband be removed from their Vista Road home. He had been reportedly drinking all day and spilling beer all over the home.

There was also a report of used hypedermic needles found
