SCHOFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) -- Seven people have been arrested in a pair of drug stings in the Wausau area.

Sheriff's officials say the drug busts started on a tip that drug activity was taking place inside a Schofield motel. A search warrant was executed on Tuesday, and officers arrested three people inside the motel, and seized meth, drug packaging items and scales.

Information gathered at the Schofield arrest lead to a Wausau address, where police executed another search warrant. Four more suspects were arrested at that location.

All seven people are scheduled for initial appearances today in Marathon County court.

Deputies say the arrests were the combined work of Everest Metro and Wausau Police, and the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.
