Highway 33 closed to traffic in Baraboo as police search home for drugs
A portion of Highway 33 through Baraboo was closed to traffic Thursday morning as law enforcement officers searched a home for drugs.
The Sauk County Critical Incident Response Team was at 414 Eighth St. with an armored vehicle in the driveway. The four-lane street, which doubles as Highway 33 through town, was closed to traffic at Elizabeth and East streets.
Baraboo Police Chief Mark Schauf said authorities executed a drug search warrant at the two-story residence.
Schauf said police were concerned about the safety of officers and residents involved, so they called for assistance as a precaution.
