Four Rhinelander area residents have been arrested on drug charges following the execution of a search warrant in the town of Pine Lake.

According to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office a search warrant was executed at 3961 Trails End Road in Pine Lake Tuesday morning in connection with an investigation involving the use, manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine.

The Rhinelander Police Department, Northcentral Drug Enforcement Group (NORDEG) and the Wisconsin Department of Justice assisted in the search.

Following the search, Gerry R. Frederick, 38, Thomas E. Franz, 55, Scott J. Dumpprope, 40, and Carrie A. Steinmetz, 46, were arrested on multiple charges including, but not limited to, conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, maintaining a drug dwelling, delivery of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia. None of the four suspects has been formally charged, as of noon Wednesday, but the sheriff’s office indicates they are likely to make court appearances this week.

Several other arrests are anticipated as a result of this investigation, the sheriff’s office noted.
