Story By Kailey Burton


NASHVILLE - The sale and abuse of bath salts in the Northwoods continues, this time in Forest county.

Three Antigo residents were arrested for running a drug house out of a rental cabin.

Robert and Debra Lindemann, and Brian Sikora were arrested on Thursday.

Inside a cabin on Pickerel Lake Road, in the Town of Nashville, Police found marijuana, bath salts, and illegal prescription drugs.

The owner of the cabin did not want to be named, but said 4 people rented the cabin on Pickerel Lake road in August.

Police were tipped off when they noticed suspicious activity.

"It is an upcoming trend," said Forest County Chief Deputy Alex Walrath of the bath salts, "They're very dangerous drugs, very powerful. And it reacts with people in a very negative way. So people do very, very strange things when they're under the influence of bath salts."

The three suspects are currently being held in the Forest County Jail.
