EAGLE RIVER - An Eagle River man pleaded not guilty to multiple drug related charges. 

Police arrested Scott Schmidt, 33, of Eagle River and Stephanie Wolfe, 34, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, on March 30 for making meth in Schmidt's Eagle River home on Highway 45.


Schmidt's facing six drug related felony charges. 

According to a criminal complaint, Schmidt and Wolfe went to pharmacies in Wausau, Oshkosh, and Grand Rapids, Michigan to buy pseudoephedrine, a common ingredient used to make meth. 

The two bought at least 80 grams of pseudoephedrine between Nov. 29, 2017 and March 28, 2018. Wisconsin law limits the amount of pseudoephedrine a person can buy to 7.5 grams in a 30-day period.  

In Vilas County Court Wednesday, Schmidt waived his preliminary hearing. His case will move forward. 

Schmidt's bond was reduced to $2,500 cash.
